Tiger Woods -- Haiti Hero?

1/14/2010 12:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods may have finally emerged from exile in the name of humanitarianism, this according to Russell Simmons.



Simmons claims he heard that Tiger was getting involved in the Haiti relief effort and wrote the following message on his Twitter page: "heard tiger woods donating to send a cargo plane with a mobile hospital out there. Keep ur prayers high!"

TMZ has attempted to confirm with Tiger's people -- so far, no one seems to know anything.

I am glad Tiger is doing something positive. He should chip in like 1 million dollars, he has the money. Good publicity is something he needs, especially after another story, first broke by the Vancouver Sun, came out that his Escalade may have been monitored with a GPS system http://tracking-system.com/for-consumers/gps-spouse-tracking/274-did-a-gps-tracker-catch-tiger.html

Buzz, I could stereotype and make assumptions on you but whats the point. Your ignorance and arrogance is displayed through your words. And the same constitutional right that unfortunately lets you run crazily and comment without knowledge is what gives me the right to say what I think and honestly what is the truth. This is a multicultural society- if you don't like it move to another country hopefully a repressive country that won't allow your hatred to spread.

I will not shut up because absent minded people such as yourself have not stopped reproducing and passing on the hate and lies.

What are arapanes anyway? People generally hate on others are lacking in some department or another.

I will not make any apologies for being hispanic ever. Your mother however should apologies to all of us for bringing up such a disturbed individual.

Those of you who can't tolerate blacks, Asians, hispanics, etc....the minorities should really consider leaving the US.

Speech: Thank you.

Kevin: If minorities would leave this country it would grumble. Minorities should go on a strike for one day to show all of you arrogant individuals how much they contribute. Blacks, Asians, and Hispanics not only do much of the hard work most individuals won't but they are also holding extremely important jobs and roles such as lawyers, doctors, teachers, and lets not forget our President who his mostly of minority origin.

Wake up this country is changing; bias, racist, and truly DELUSIONAL individuals should hear the wake up call.

Good job Tiger Woods for stepping up. I hope many more celebrity figures step in as well. I doubt very much this is to "redeem" himself; I think this is likely more of a selfless act. Besides, he's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. Personally I don't care who and how many people he slept with. He likely could have been more discrete and taken more cold showers, however, his wife undoubtedly knew, she's going to be well taken care of through this financially so no worries there. What is disgraceful, however, is while he was philandering about, there was no thought to his children's ultimate welfare. Money can't buy everything. Hope he's seeking the help he obviously needs.

25. To Post # 8: I am delighted you can afford to send $100.00 to the relief efforts, and in good times I would have been able to, but some of us are not so fortunate at this time. If I had $100. right now I would make sure my kids had a decent breakfast and milk in the morning. And before you even comment as to why I am on the computer right now, I am looking for a job like a million other people in the USA!

That was a questionable commentary. Most of these Americans who complain about "looking for work" on the computer, are actually spending way too much of their time on TMZ, Dlisted, etc....Were you truly looking for a job with urgency, you wouldn't have wasted one second writing that cr*p.

Yet most US kids are spoiled beyond belief. If you don't know where your kids next meal is coming from, YOU are irresponsible, and shouldn't even be here AT ALL. There are job openings at supermarkets all over the place, so please stop whining. You can get your job at the supermarket, plus a discount for the milk that you need for your kids.

If you don't have $100 dollars to donate, you can donate $10. You have NO idea what it's like to be crushed by tons of cement, broken ribs, cracked skull, glass in eyes, do YOU?

People are suffering, all day, all night, no water, no food, NO HOMES.

Since a lot of them are poor, making a dollar a day, so that YOUR KIDS CAN WEAR NIKES, SHOW SOME COMPASSION! THEY ARE DYING, AND THE DEATHS ARE GOING TO BE SLOW AND PAINFUL!

SHOW SOME COMPASSION FOR HUMAN BEINGS, LIKE YOU WOULD TO A STRAY ANIMAL, please.

# 5 get your facts straight. This morning on the Today Show Roker was at the airport in Haiti and was talking about a Cuban plane that had arrived carrying medical personel and supplies.

Poor Tiger...he's damned if he helps, and he's damned if he doesn't help.

For the people saying that Tiger is only helping to repair his image...you are the same people who would be complaining if he didn't help. You should be focusing on the fact that any help IS help for the people of Haiti. It doesn't matter what, why or how they get help.

Besides, you're obviously not aware of Tiger's charities and youth projects...Tiger Woods Foundation and Tiger Woods Learning Foundation.

Russel Simmons words are similar to the nemisis in a whoppi Goldberg movie where she was stock market genius made up as a caucasian man to be taken seriously. Her nemises found out her ploy and manipulated the situation for his own needs. He then announced that her character was lost at sea when it was a lie.

If Tiger didn't think of this, he should thank Russell for the great idea.
