Among the men brought down by the #metoo movement, is yogi, guru, hip hop godfather Russell Simmons. He’s been accused of sexual assault by seven women and rape by six – some of whom were as young as 17 at the time of the event.
While denying any truth to these allegations, he stepped down from all his business roles and fled the country to Bali. Another generational disappointment – a man who represented so much to so many, failing to live up to the bar he set for himself.
Disappointing both for hip hop fans and for all those who bought into his whole Christian Yogi enlightened family man above it all lifestyle guru bullshit. What a fucking facade!
