After rolling out his plan to ban all Muslim travel to the United States, Donald Trump caused quite the commotion throughout the nation. His words were so offensive that even the White House called for the disqualification of his presidential run. It seems now that friends of Trump can no longer stand by him and support his campaign, one friend in particular is Russell Simmons.

In an open letter written on his website, Global Grind, Simmons called out Trump asking him very directly to “stop the bullshit.”

Russell Simmons starts off the letter with the recollection of a Foundation for Ethnic Understanding meeting. The meeting organized by Simmons, was held to start a dialogue about Trump’s Islamophobia. He said, “My friends, both Muslims and Jews, are saying there are so many comparisons between your rap and Hitler’s, and I cannot disagree with them, Donald.”

He then pleaded with his friend saying, “stop the bullshit” adding, “Stop fueling fires of hate,” he continues. “Don’t feed into the rhetoric created by small-minded people. You’re smarter and certainly more loving then you let on.”

Finally Simmons wraps up the letter saying, Trump is “becoming a major embarrassment,” continuing, “I know the cheap seats are easy to play to, but you can get them just by being the man I have known for nearly 30 years.”
