50 Cent and Russell Simmons have lashed out at Oprah Winfrey. Their reaction comes days after Oprah announced that she would be producing a documentary about Drew Dixon, a woman who accused Simmons of sexual harassment.
Both men posted their sentiments on social media on Friday, Dec. 13, 2019.
â€œI donâ€™t understand why Oprah is going after Black men,â€� 50 Cent posted on Instagram. â€œNo Harvey Weinstein, No [Jeffrey] Epstein, just Micheal Jackson and Russell Simmons. This sâ€” is sad. Gale [King] hit R. Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal Jackson I donâ€™t know whether to dance or think about the little boysâ€™ butts. These documentaries are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty until proven innocent.â€�
Simmons took a more somber approach by sharing his side of the story. The music mogul posted a photo on Instagram of himself with Winfrey during an interview in which they talked about spirituality.
