VIDEO [NSFW]: Russell Simmons apologizes for controversial 'Harriet Tubman sex tape'

The controversial comedy skit of abolitionist Harriet Tubman first appeared on Russell Simmons' All Def Digital YouTube channel.

WARNING: This video depicts sexual activity and includes profanity viewers may find offensive.

A controversial comedy skit of abolitionist Harriet Tubman having sex with her "massa," which appeared on Russell Simmons' All Def Digital YouTube channel, is popping up all over the Internet -- and most people aren't happy about it.

Simmons issued an apology for the video this morning, as reported by USA Today:"I'm a very liberal person with thick skin," wrote Simmons. "My first impression of the Harriet Tubman piece was that it was about what one of actors said in the video, that 162 years later, there's still tremendous injustice. And with Harriet Tubman outwitting the slave master? I thought it was politically correct. Silly me. I can now understand why so many people are upset. I have taken down the video. Lastly, I would never condone violence against women in any form, and for all of those I offended, I am sincerely sorry."

While Simmons has pulled the skit from his YouTube channel, as is usually the case these days, it had already been copied and shared across the interwebs.
