Sexual assault allegations are taking down power players in the entertainment industry left and right, with the latest allegations leveled against Russell Simmons.
Since the media mogul and entrepreneur has released a statement announcing that he has ultimately chosen to step down from all of his companies to focus on yoga, he has been criticized by several fans and admirers across social media. America's Next Top Model winner and brand-new Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille, however, thinks his critics are jumping the gun and is coming to his defense.

Taking to the comments section below an unknown social media post, Marcille questioning why the accusations made against Simmons are even being taken as truth, at all.
Bossip acquired a screenshot of her words, which read, "Allegations and accusations are not facts.... how quick we are to condemn an amazing man because of what someone says... what about his denial of these horrible accusations, do they not have weight? I know Russell to be an amazing upstanding man period."
For the time being, the model-turned-reality star is the only public figure who has outwardly spoken out in support of Simmons following each woman's account.
