Russell Simmons

on NYC Homeless

'THEY'RE F**KED'

EXCLUSIVE

103012_rusell_simmons_launch
Russell Simmons says the homeless people who live in NYC are totally "f**ked" ... after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the city ... and now he's placing the blame on Mayor Bloomberg. 

Simmons says he's grateful he was in L.A. during the storm, but says he's positive some of his properties sustained damage -- "My pad in the Hamptons might be twisted."

But when we brought up New York's homeless population, Russell couldn't have been more blunt -- "They're f**cked ... it's terrible."

"I mean I love Mayor Bloomberg," Simmons said ... "But he did a sh**ty job with the homeless ... and now look at the mess ... really, I don't know what to say."

If you want to see more of the disadvantaged being treated like they are worthless ... just make sure and vote for the privileged Romney since he basically thinks if you haven't inherited at least a few millions dollars from a rich powerful daddy ... you are worthless and lazy.

BooHoo the homeless. Why are they the mayor's responsibility? Just because they happened to squat there? Please. Homeless have no one to blame but themselves. No pity party here.

I had a feeling that most celebrities that live in NYC would head west before the storm hit. Mr. Simmons is the first one to pop his head out to see if the sun is still shining. Does this mean that we have a few more weeks of fall left?

Most of the homeless are registered sex offenders and convicted felons.

Well Russell, douche bag, why not put up the homeless in your pad in the Hamptons or better yet, a bit closer to home for them, like in your place or 2 in Manhattan? Glass houses....

Dear Russel,

Why don't you help homeless and offer them your pad in Hamptons ? And why you are at it, some food perhaps?
