Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons has apologized for a controversial video uploaded to his YouTube channel.

It was reportedly a sex tape parody of African-American slave and abolitionist Harriet Tubman. It shows her in bed with a white slave owner, while another slave films them from a closet.

Hours after the posting the video, people criticized Simmons for making fun of Tubman's legacy and making a mockery of slave rape.
