Russell Simmons Thinks Tiffany Haddish’s Police Brutality Protest Is “A Call For Help”

Russell Simmons is not here for Tiffany Haddish’s new protest and is saying it’s a “Call For Help.”


Earlier this week, actress Tiffany Haddish took to her social media account to share that she has a new protest she wants to do.

Haddish says that she will keep wearing fur until “police stop killing black people.”

“‘I’m gonna wear fur every day until the police stop killing black people,” Haddish says in the video. “When police stop killing Black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry PETA, don’t be mad at me! Be mad at the police!”

Well, this statement didn’t sit well with Russell Simmons who is a long time vegan.

“White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms, the abuse of other beings will not address that,” he wrote in an Instagram comment.

“I love you Tiffany but I wish you could reconsider this route of protest.”

Although he does not agree with her decision, instead of bashing her, he actually offered her some other solutions.

“Practicing loving all Gods creatures,” he said. “some of that love could include a wake up to the oppressors. Be strong way. things like ‘wake up white people and all people’ while u sit idle. black people are dying. Your silence is LOUD and unless you too speak up with me you are guilty of all that your brothers and sisters do by not speaking you [allow it] to happen.

“Is why Malcolm [X] said the white man is the devil no individuals but the collective actions are horrible. Each individual of all races should fight police brutality and each who has no voice is guilty of collaborative …”

“I received so many calls from my friends in the animal rights community saying why did she choose fur as her form of protest,” he wrote in the caption. “Yes people I agree that the suffering of any of Gods innocent living beings is horrible And uncalled for ..family please understand ..Hurt people Hurt people The Black community is hurting And they should not feel like they have to go it alone.

“I do agree that in my many times protesting police brutality I have seen the same people who occupied wall street the same people whom I encountered at the women’s march and the same people who I have seen at animal rights events We are the compassionate ones that we are waiting for …we must stand up for each other… Please let’s all be sensitive to ALL suffering and although I think the form of protest is misguided I do acknowledge that it is a call for help ….do you?”

As of now, there has been no word on whether Haddish and Simmons have spoken more about this topic!
