Russell Simmons

on NYC Homeless

'THEY'RE F**KED'

10/31/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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."

DREAM ON most of these wealthy people just help them selves they could care less about others. The Khardashians are a good example of that!

You don't have to be rich to help someone poor. Russell is a douche but he's telling the absolute truth. God is not going to stop with the weather punishment until people learn this. This Fall, Winter, and Spring will be the worst in recorded history if people don't stop being selfish. Expect to see a lot of deaths soon.
