Russell Simmons Admits Sexual Assault Guilt By Stepping Down From Companies

Russell Simmons didn’t do anything wrong despite being accused of sexual assault. But he’s stepping down from multiple companies anyway. But just know. He didn’t do anything wrong.

Simmons was accused of sexual assault by Jenny Lumet, who alleges that Simmons forced her to have sex with him back in 1991. This comes after he was also accused of sexual assault by Keri Claussen Khalighi, who said Simmons raped her when she was 17 while Brett Ratner watched.

Here’s what Simmons had to say about the accusations and such:

“While I have never been violent, I have been thoughtless and insensitive in some of my relationships over many decades and I sincerely and humbly apologize.”

Yeah, I’ve been thoughtless and insensitive in my past relationships as well. Doesn’t mean I’ve forced myself on top of women. I’ve just acted like I care about their problems while continuing to play my video games. Sorry for doing that, women.

Simmons isn’t actually owning up to anything in this statement, nor is he apologizing for what he’s been accused of.

Him stepping down is all the proof we need that he’s guilty of these crimes.

Simmons runs like 500 different companies. He’s involved in music, movies, television, clothing, credit cards, and God knows what else. Here’s what he had to say about stepping down:

“The companies will now be run by a new and diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness forward,” said Simmons, adding, “As for me, I will step aside and commit myself to continuing my personal growth, spiritual learning, and, above all, to listening.”

Maybe you should have listened to his victims when they said, “No, I don’t want to have sex with you.” I guess that’s what Simmons is really guilty of. He didn’t rape anyone. He just failed to listen to them.
