Russell Simmons is urging New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg to come to the aid of the city’s homeless in the wake of superstorm Sandy.
The hip hop mogul spoke out about the horrible circumstances faced by the homeless after New York was ravaged by the storm on Monday, and accused Mayor Bloomberg of failing to deal with the situation.
“They’re f**ked. It’s terrible,” Simmons said in footage obtained by TMZ. “We have so little regard for the homeless in New York already. I mean, I love Mayor Bloomberg, but he did a sh**ty job with the homeless. And now look at this mess. Really, I don’t know what to say.”
Asked about how his own property was affected by the storm, Simmons replies, “My crib in the Hamptons might be twisted. I am less worried about my house in the Hamptons than I am about the homeless.”
