50 Cent slammed Oprah Winfrey’s involvement in a forthcoming Russell Simmons documentary.
“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” the “Power” producer wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday (Dec. 12). “No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this sh*t is sad.”
Winfrey is set to executive produce a documentary about Russell Simmons rape accuser, Drew Dixon, who alleged multiple instances of sexual misconduct against the Def Jam Recordings co-founder.
The story is described as following “a brilliant former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story of assault and abuse by a notable figure in the music industry. The film is a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.”
Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering will direct the documentary, which will debut at the Sundance Film Festival in 2020.
“Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary,” 50 continued in his post, referring to Gayle King’s explosive CBS interview with the disgraced R&B singer. “Every time I hear Micheal jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts. These documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”
50 followed up the claim with another post depicting President Donald Trump, actor Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly and Jeffrey Epstein.
“You think Oprah don’t notice how this sh*t is playing out?” he captioned the post, pointing out that white men have “walked” away from prison sentences.
Simmons also responded to Winfrey and the documentary on Instagram.
“I have taken and passed nine 3-hour lie detector tests (taken for my daughters), that these stories have been passed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS,” he wrote on Friday (Dec. 13). “Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that ‘hurt people hurt people.’”
“In closing, I am guilty of exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, but i have never been violent or forced myself on anyone,” he wrote.
