Russell Simmons has always been on Team Animal Rights and a mistake at a seafood restaurant confirms it!
The mogul graced the cover of Forbes and the magazine details a particular snafu when Simmons accidentally eats calamari.
The magazine states:
He reaches over to the plate of Veronica Varekova, the blonde Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret model, picks up what he thinks is an onion ring, and pops it into his mouth.
'Ugh!' he says, stopping mid-chew. 'What is that?' On the other side of him, Petra Nemcova, the 5-foot-10 stunner, puts her hand on his knee.
'It’s calamari, Russell,' she says in a soothing voice.His response to eating someone he normally wouldn’t touch?
'You know I don’t eat that sh-t.'
Well, it took him years to try it…but we're glad he doesn't cheat on his veganism!
