Russell Simmons on Meat: 'I Don’t Eat That Sh*t'

Looking happy and healthy on the cover of the November 5th issue of Forbes Magazine, Russell Simmons and his friends give an inside look at the business magnate’s life.

Known as PETA’s person of the year, an honoree at Mercy for Animals’ upcoming event, a yoga enthusiast and a vegan, Simmons is reportedly worth 75 million buckaroos. (Aren’t you glad he’s on our side?)

In the piece in Forbes we get a glimpse into how Simmons reacted when he accidentally ate a piece of calamari. Forbes reports, “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.”

Perhaps that’s why animal organizations love him so much. Plus, he’s a regular at AR events to raise money for organizations like Farm Sanctuary, The New York Coalition for Healthy School Foods and Mercy for Animals.

All of those organizations agree: No one should eat that sh*t.

    I guess 75 million doesn’t buy you manners!! If you taste something at a party that you don’t like, quietly take it out of your mouth without embarassing the hosts or making a scene…Children learn this guess Simons never did!!
