Bill Cosby Vs. Russell Simmons

| Filed under: Celebrity Feuds

Bill Cosby and Russell Simmons

Bill Cosby may be getting older, but he's still feisty as ever.

The comedian and rap mogul Russell Simmons have been in a celebrity feud since Cosby launched his "State of Emergency" campaign, which promoted socially conscious rap music without lyrics celebrating violence, sex or the degradation of women.

Russell felt Cosby was a little too judgmental of today's rap and hip-hop stars, but was willing to put the feud behind him at the Jackie Robinson Annual Awards Dinner on March 7.

Unfortunately for Russell, Cosby isn't letting go of that grudge!

When Russell approached Bill to apologize, the 73-year-old comedian responded with, "Get the [bleep] out my face!"

LOLz! Bill, you potty mouth!

Simmons wrote about the experience on his blog, saying:

"I wanted to find him to apologize, to tell him I was sorry about my statements and to tell him that I loved him."

Sounds like Bill did not want to hear it because Russell says that after he presented an award to Sean Combs, "walked by me and bumped me with his shoulder as I walked offstage."

Damn, Bill! Ha! Russell took it all in stride though, explaining:

"I love Bill. His next move was straight up old school pre b-boy hood shit. He walked by me and bumped me with his shoulder as I walked off stage after presenting my award to Sean, just like the cool ass character in “Let's Do It Again.” I then loved him even more."

Somehow we don't think he loves you back, but who knows!

What do U think of Bill Cosby's response to Russell Simmons apology?

    I love Bill Cosby! I would trust Bill's version of events before the little old weasel Russell. Perez,before you publish nonstories like these, you should at least attempt to get Bill Cosby's opinion-(but I guess you and journalists today skip little details like that.)

    Bill should SIT DOWN…isn't he a bit too old for this drama. He has been on a war path the past couple of years I think his age is affecting his mental health. He should focus less on "responsible" rap and more on his alleged daughter he put in jail and his hyporcritical potty mouth!

    Maybe Bill felt like the guy was apologizing for the sake of the apology and not because he felt he did something wrong (as in glorify guns, treating women like crap and materialism…the things ruining the world we live in).

    'Team Russell' all the wayyyyy ++

    Being ill-tempered and clinging to old grudges as if they were life preservers is so unattractive.

    I'm behind Bill 100% - he's right!

    Cosby is a moral hypocrite. He has been accused by many women of drugging and sexually assaulting them. He paid at least one off to keep quiet.

    Bill's acting like a stupid olde turkey. Pride goeth before a fall and all that. You don't keep fighting when you've already won, fool.

    Cosby's an old racist douchebag who needs to stop judging others.

    Mr. Simmons really needs to thinks about what comes out of his mouth…everyone has their own beliefs, and i really used to like him…but having seen him on multiple shows recently blasting out HIS opinions like its he wrote the bible and we all must follow his way makes me sick. Well I'm puttig Mr. Simmons or anyone else on blast…believe what you choose, love who you what, live and dream as you choose…and love some puddin pops ;)

    sounds like he is joking around, unless you show me a clip..words can't be trasnlate anymore through reporters because you take everything literal. Its Bill Cosby for goodness sake lol

    Let's recall that Mr. Cosby's only son was murdered in an incident of gun violence.
    Despite all his (numerous) problems–infidelity, hypocrisy, class snobbery, treating poor Camille Cosby like a doormat for years–Mr. Cosby lives with the pain of losing this child.

    I'd cut Cosby some slack. Mr. Simmons became a very rich man by exploiting some of the worst features in the Black community. He should be held accountable.
