Following a week ago’s declaration that Oprah Winfrey dropped her name from Apple TV+’s Russell Simmons documentary, the news investor showed up on CBS This Morning with friend and host Gayle King to broadly expound on her choice. At last, she stated, “I thought a few things were wrong” with the film. As per a Sundance Film Festival depiction of the untitled narrative from producers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, the film focuses on Drew Dixon, a previous music official who worked for Simmons and later denounced him assault and sexual wrongdoing in a 2017 meeting with The New York Times. Various other ladies have additionally approached with comparative allegations. Simmons has denied every one of the claims against him.”It was a hard choice since I realized that Russell Simmons had begun openly constraining me and that me pulling out of the narrative was going to seem as though I was being compelled,” Winfrey said.
In a past meeting with The New York Times, Winfrey referenced that Simmons “reached out different occasions and endeavored to pressure me. I let him know legitimately in a telephone call that I won’t be constrained either into or out of, backing this film.” Publicly, Simmons presented a message on Winfrey on Instagram in December that indeed denied the charges against him and said how he discovered it “so upsetting that you pick me to single out in your ongoing documentary.”
