Russell Simmons lashes out at André Leon Talley: ‘I’ve done more for blacks in fashion and gay rights’ than you

André Leon Talley called out Russell Simmons for depicting Harriet Tubman making a sex tape in a comedy video he produced, during his interview this week with theGrio.

The former Vogue editor-at-large said that Simmons should be banned from front rows of fashion shows this season for his role in the controversial project.

“I think anyone that is a person of achievement on the front row that has achieved a great deal be they black or white is a good thing,” Talley told theGrio.

Simmons has apologized both publicly and privately to descendants of Tubman for the parody, but his mea culpa is insufficient as far as Talley is concerned.

“I don’t think Russell Simmons should be seated on anybody’s front row this week after having done that disgusting Harriet Tubman sex tape. He is a man of great achievement. He is a great philanthropist….why would he think it would be an honorable thing to do? He said he thought it was funny. That is not funny it is outrageously disrespectful to the legacy and history of Harriet Tubman and to the struggle.”

Moments ago Simmons took to Twitter to apologize to Talley and also issue some criticism.

“Im really sincerely sorry @Andreleontally. Fyi ive done more for blacks in fashion and gay rights then [sic] you, can i get a break/ seat ?,” Simmons tweeted.

“Where were u on marriage equality @ gay pride, dont ask dont tell? Did u help change fed policy LAST WEEK on mandatory minimum sentencing?” he continued.

“I earned my seat take off the fur coat and sit down.”

What did Russell say that was so wrong?

He apologized and I believe his apology was genuinely given..
What did he say in the article that was so out of bounds?

Russell sounds like a white man who couldnt possibly be racist because of all he did for those colored people.

I don't really keep up with RS like that, so other than making Kimora his child bride and BabyPhatFarm, what has he done for blacks in fashion?

I agree with him he has employed and given work to more blacks in fashion than Andre.
I guess he's like the Tyler Perry of fashion
I don't always like the end result but I'm not mad he's doing it.

Andre held a powerful position in the fashion industry .
I don't know what he did to try to empower blacks or gays while there...
