Damage Control: Russell Simmons Vows to Produce Harriet Tubman Biopic

Damage Control: Russell Simmons Vows to Produce Harriet Tubman Biopic

Hip hop mogul Russell Simmons caught significant heat last week for publishing a comedy video featuring Underground Railroad icon Harriet Tubman in sexual situations.

Simmons quickly apologized, but not before receiving a crush of blistering critiques for the clip.

Now, Simmons says he’s been in touch with Tubman’s descendants and is pushing to make a film based on her historic life.

In a series of tweets over the weekend, Simmons said that not only had his apology been accepted, they were now all going to team up to get a Tubman biopic off the ground.
