Clothes, Memes, and Music: Russell Simmons Accused Of Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old As Brett Ratner Watched, Russell Denies Claims, Releases Statement @balleralert Russell Simmons Accused Of Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old As Brett Ratner Watched, Russell Denies Claims, Releases Statement - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this month, a woman by the name of Keri Claussen Khaligh came forward with allegations against Def Jam Recordings mogul, Russell Simmons and entertainment businessman, Brett Ratner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the report, Khaligh, who was 17 at the time, met the two men at a casting call. Following their initial encounter, the two reportedly took the young girl out to dinner and then back to Simmons’ apartment to show her some work they had been working on. However, shortly after, the woman said Simmons began to get aggressive, tearing off her clothes and making sexual advances as Ratner watched, despite her calls for help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Khaligh said Simmons then tried to force her to have sex with him but eventually settled for coerced oral sex, again as the then-up-and-coming music video director watched. Following the incident, the woman said she went to take a shower, as she was feeling “disgusting.” But, Simmons came into the shower and forced himself into her, but she quickly “jerked away,” and he left. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, however, both men have denied the allegations of sexual misconduct without consent. Simmons said in a statement that “Everything that occurred between Keri and me occurred with her full consent and participation,” adding that much of their night was spent with other people or in public. Ratner, on the other hand, said he could not recall the woman calling for help, but said he did not see the woman “protest” the events that took place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, according to LA Times, six additional women have come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Ratner.

Bad, Be Like, and Beautiful: IRE MENTOR CONQUER FROM WITHIN. CONC The world we live in can be harsh, full of anger, fear, doubt, pain and sadness. On the other hand, it can be a beautiful world full of hope, peace, happiness and life. But sometimes it is hard to find the light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what age, race or gender, the world can bite down hard on our delicate skin. It is hard to fight what is around us because some things are just out of our control. So why do we continue to fight things we cannot change? Why fight the world when it will just fight back 10 times harder? Why fight a battle that will leave us weak even if we win? Maybe we shouldn’t be fighting people, ideas or the world. Maybe there is something inside of us that we should be fighting. - No one can fully control their emotions, however, we can shape the way we think. Why look at the world in a negative way? Why only focus on the bad? Why expect the worst in people? It is difficult to exist in a place where people focus more on what is around them than what is inside of them. If we cannot shape the harshness inside of us, how can we expect the world around us to change?🤔 Conquer from within. Conquer those demons that are haunting you. Whether it be jealousy, hatred, anger or fear, you can win this inner battle. By focusing energy on these internal issues, we can conquer the emotions that make this world so harsh for us to live in. You cannot change people, so why bother trying? Focus on making yourself the person you wish the rest of the world could be like. 😉 - CONQUER life success millionairementor

Community, Head, and Life: BREAKING NEWS LOUIS' APOLOGY Nov. 10 | Louis C.K. admits to sexual misconduct allegations; offers sincere public apology. Here is C.K.’s statement in full: I want to address the stories told to the New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not. These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly. I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position. I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it. There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with. I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work. The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I’d be remiss to exclude the hurt that I’ve brought on people who I work with and have worked with who’s professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situatio
