Russell Simmons

on NYC Homeless


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

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."

Well then Mr. Simmons, I guess you should put your money where your mouth is, and help out. That's what gets me!! All of these celebrities, stand around, talk and complain and talk about how bad the damage is, how horrible it all is. BUT, how many, are actually opening up those wallets, purses, and check books? You're not helping by standing around, giving interviews about how bad things are. Being you are there, and looking at it first hand, dont just standing around talking, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! I heave learned through the years, with **Some** celebrities, if it's not all about THEM, then they gotta still open their mouth so they can still be seen. *shaking my head*
