Simmons Sorry for Premature Tiger Tweet

1/16/2010 12:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Russell Simmons now admits he jumped the gun when he said Tiger Woods was donating $3 million to help out Haiti -- but really, that's the least of Tiger's troubles.

Tiger's people say they are still evaluating the best way to help, but that didn't stop Russell from committing Tiger to something he hasn't committed to yet.

He tells TMZ, "Yesterday, I tweeted that Tiger Woods was contributing in a major way. My source for the tweet was premature, however, I strongly and passionately urge everyone with reach and means to act NOW as speed is everything to saving the lives of people in desperate need."

Tiger's camp says they plan to be a part of the relief effort, they are just considering their options.

Option 1. They need $$$$ now.

Come Tiger, might as well give it away before you really have to give it away! I think you know what I mean.

Who is this tard writing checks with other people's (Tiger's) money? Is this guy Tiger's manager or what?

Regardless, if this guy works for Tiger, then Tiger should step up and fork over the $3MM, otherwise Tiger ends up with another black eye caused by something other than an enraged woman with a 9 iron.

Maybe Russey was pulling Tigers coat to do something for the Black community. So what he forced his hand! Tiger seems to have forgotten that he is what is it, 1/4 Black. An act of kindness just might turn public opinion.

Russell Simmons has some major coin of his own. If I were Tiger, I'd say when you Mr. Simmons put up $3 million, then I'll match it. That should keep his big mouth shut.

I think Russell Simmons has nothing better to do these days than to be tweeting with Tila Tequila. That's what it sounds like.

You don't force someone to donate. That isn't cool Russell Simmons, why don't you donate the 3 mil which I know you will. Now I know that YOU donated the 3 mil, I won't have to donate. Thanks for making me feel better and I contributed. Thanks Russell Simmons for contributing in a major way. Hey Tiger, Russell Simmons went ahead and donated 3 mil and dedicated that it's from all of us, you included. Now, I am not going to donate to Haiti. Thanks Russell Simmons on behalf of everyone!
