50 Cent, Russell Simmons Slam Oprah’s Forthcoming #MeToo Documentary For ‘Only Going After Black Men’

Published: Friday 13th Dec 2019 by Rashad

Months after getting flack for her highly publicized sit down with accusers who (via the controversial ‘Leaving Neverland’ TV special) resurfaced allegations King of Pop Michael Jackson sexually assaulted them as children, Oprah Winfrey is on the receiving end of staunch criticism again for her recently announced, yet-titled documentary about sexual misconduct in the music industry.

Set to debut in 2020, the Apple exclusive is produced and directed by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering.  Reportedly featuring a damning interview from an alleged victim of entertainment mogul Russell Simmons, news of the film’s delivery reached the desk of fellow mogul 50 Cent who, in a fiery Instagram post, slammed Winfrey for what he argues is a regime to ‘target Black men.’

I just want to know why she is only going after her own. When it’s clear the penalties have been far more extreme for African American men. #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac #starzgettheapp #abcforlife

Shortly after 50 first made headlines for his comments about Winfrey, Simmons followed up with:

Dearest OPRAH,you have been a shining light to my family and my community. Contributing so much to my life that I couldn’t list a fraction of it in this blog.Ihave given you the gift of meditation and the groundbreaking book”THE POWER OF NOW “we bonded to say the least. This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentry. I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today “womanizer”) sleeping with and putting myself in more compromising situations than almost any man I know. Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection of the same experiences. Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand chosen women. I have refused to get in the mud with any accusers, but let’s acknowledge what i have shared. I have taken and passed nine 3-hour lie detector tests (taken for my daughters), that these stories have been passed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS. Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that “hurt people hurt people”. Today I received a call from an old girlfriend from the early 1980s which means that they are using my words/evidence against me and their COMMITMENT / (all of the claims are 25 to 40 years old) It is impossible to prove what happened 40 years ago, but in my case proof exists of what didn’t happen, mostly signed letters from their own parents, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and in the case of 2 of your 3 accusers, their own words in their books. Shocking how many people have misused this important powerful revolution for relevance and money. Maybe you should name your documentary “FLAVOR OF LOVE”!? In closing, I am guilty of exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, but i have never been violent or forced myself on anyone. Still I am here to help support a necessary shift in power and consciousness. Let us get to work on uplifting humanity and put this moment and old narrative behind

    Its obvious..? she’s had a sit down, with the powers to be. Here’s a woman, who’s success story is incredible..bigger than any pale face in America, on national TV. YET..she had to go to a cable network, for her own deal. Had she been, Lucy Arnez, Carol Burnett with that, kind of success..she’d have her on Major Deal on a Major Network..Their keeping Her in her Aunt Jemima PLACE..She, has the ears of White women, She,bet Not..Talk About..White Men.?

  7. eric December 13, 2019

    You never see this kind of platform created for accusers of white men. Oprah is part of the agenda to deflect attention from white s-e-x-ual predators and make black men the face of s-e-x crime.

  8. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. December 13, 2019

    Russell IS guilty but I will have to say that I agree with 50 on this one. She’s consciously selective in her documentaries lately. Perhaps this is due to her own hurtful past as a girl abused by Black men. Either way, it’s sad that there is more than enough perpetrators for her to choose from and yet the color of each face is always BLACK.

  9. Fast_Persuader December 13, 2019

    It’s annoying AF that the obvious is being pointed out by $0.50 and Uncle ‘sit-on-my-lap’ Russ of people.

    Nonetheless, Oprah has always demonstrated that she loooves and savors the smell of whyte folk f@rts, For years she has always shown this thinly veiled an air of bias against black men.

    So, OF COURSE she’d announce this new doc just in time for the holidays, it’s one of her “Favorite Things!”. ?

  10. Danny Bey December 13, 2019

    F*ck 50 but f*ck Oprah just the same. They can both rot for all I care.

    I bet you my college tuition that’s so she’s not bout to include her bestie Harvey Weinstein in this bullsh*t tho…

  11. Gee December 13, 2019

    If she is going to shed light on two, she should be an equal opportunist and expose the white predators too if she is not going to expose them all she needs to leave this subject alone because it makes Oprah look very shady, and it looks like she is against her own.

    • Kim December 14, 2019

      Oprah has always been against black people no matter what the situation she has shown compassion to white people since day one but black people it’s none

  12. IHATE ALL YALL December 14, 2019
