Music mogul and animal activist Russell Simmons has given his endorsement to Bold Native – a narrative film about the underground Animal Liberation Front.

Earlier this summer, Ecorazzi reported that Simmons was planning to attend the premiere in New York City, and although we couldn’t make it, we heard it was a huge success!

Luckily, a slew of cameras were around to record the event, and Sparrow Media recently released a compilation video of Russell Simmons in action. In the video, Russell talks about his choice to go vegan, saying:

“You know the greatest cause of global warming by almost twice as much as all forms of transportation put together? Cows. Farting. You know that, right? It’s the UN report. And you know that the greatest cause of cancer, and you know that the worst karmic thing we can do is have those 9 billion suffering farm animals as human beings. So with all those things, with all that weight, I don’t want to carry it….It’s a no win situation. I want to be one of the people that have a big enough voice, and use my voice to make a change.”

Check out the video below to watch more of what Russell has to say. This guy is pretty great!

    I think it is actually caused by cows burping.

    Will he feel the same way about the ALF if they threaten or injure one of his children (or other family members) who run afoul of their mission.

    The ALF does not threaten children…

    It’s specifically outside of their guidelines.


  • ol cranky

    they don’t overtly threaten innocent children, I’m sure the family of the baby injured by the bomb they planted on the car of a vet in the UK in 1989 was relieved to know their child was just collateral damage.

    ol cranky, how about providing some evidence that the ALF planted a bomb on a vet’s car that injured a child? The fact is that it is strictly against the rules of the ALF to ever harm anyone, human or nonhuman. Please stop spreading misinformation.
