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."

the guy is woth like 350 million, how about pulling the check book out to help out the homeless since it bothers you so much. The house in the hamptons can wait a week before you remodel with government money. oh that's right you have a 15 % deductible on hurricane insurance.

How many times did he mention his home in the Hamptons? I haven't heard of any damage to those billion dollar homes.

I really don't get these celebrity people. Why doesn't he shell out his $$ to help out then? Why complain about what Uncle Sam isn't doing? Simmons isn't the only one out there,. Michael Moore comes to mind, too. Put their money out there and help out.

Hey, Russell, you're rich, why don't you take care of them? Let them live in your Hampton mansion.

Maybe Russell could hand out some of his signature "debit cards" where he charges the poor people 25% interest for the priviledge
