How Has Hip-Hop Reacted To Diddy Assault Footage?

The Diddy-Cassie Ventura assault allegations took a new twist on Friday, May 17, 2024, after CNN released footage showing the rapper purportedly attacking his ex in a Los Angeles hotel. The video was from 2016 and was really disturbing as Diddy was seen in the footage punching and kicking Cassie. The video showed a raged Diddy while Cassie ran for safety. In November 2023, Cassie filed a lawsuit against Diddy, accusing him of sexually and physically abusing her for years. One of the incidents she recounted in the lawsuit occurred at the InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles in 2016. In the suit, Cassie, who dated Diddy from 2007 to 2018, claimed he gave her a black eye after becoming drunk during one of his alleged wild sex parties.

Cassie further claimed that she tried to leave after Diddy was asleep, but he pursued her to the hotel's hallway, where he punched and kicked her. The singer further claimed that Diddy paid the hotel $50,000 for the security video. Diddy and Cassie would later settle the lawsuit amicably. After the resolution, Diddy's lawyer said the settlement didn't mean an "admission of wrongdoing." However, despite the earlier denial, the newly released footage seems to prove Cassie's allegations. Since the video's release, the hip-hop community has reacted angrily to Diddy's actions. The rap mogul has also issued an apology. Get inside all the hip-hop community's reactions to the disturbing video below.

Before the Diddy-Cassie assault video's release, Slim Thug was one of those who defended Diddy after Cassie made her allegations. However, after the video emerged, he apologized on social media.

Diddy Apologizes After Assault Video's Release

View this post on Instagram A post shared by LOVE (@diddy)

Following the assault video's release on Friday, Diddy apologized for his wrongdoing. In a video he shared on Instagram, the 54-year-old said, "It's so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that. I was f*****d up. I mean, I hit rock bottom but I make no excuses." Diddy also said he had no excuse for how he acted on the video. He took full responsibility for his actions and added, "I'm disgusted. I was disgusted then when I did it. I'm disgusted now."

Diddy concluded by profusely apologizing. He expressed his commitment to being a better man daily and said, "I'm not asking for forgiveness; I am truly sorry." Following Diddy's apology, Cassie's lawyer, Meredith Firetog, responded via a statement. She added, "Combs' most recent statement is more about himself than the many people he has hurt. When Cassie and multiple other women came forward, he denied everything and suggested that his victims were looking for a payday." Meredith concluded, "That he was only compelled to 'apologize' once his repeated denials were proven false shows his pathetic desperation, and no one will be swayed by his disingenuous words."

50 Cent Labels Diddy's Apology A Bad Move

View this post on Instagram A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent)

Like Cassie's lawyer, Diddy's long-term troll, 50 Cent, didn't buy Diddy's apology. 50 Cent reposted Diddy's apology on his Instagram page and captioned the post, "๐Ÿ‘€This is not going to work, who is advising him right now? SMH bad move." Afterward, 50 shared a screenshot of Cassie's lawyer's statement and added, "I understand how she feels seeing him apologize not addressing her after this video gets out. It makes it feel like he wasn't thinking of how she felt having to see it. SMH where is his crisis management PR team? That was a bad move ๐Ÿ˜ณ."

50 Cent isn't the only person reacting negatively to Diddy's apology. Many angered people took to social media to vent their anger and frustration toward the Bad Boy mogul. Most people said they didn't accept the apology, causing the phrase "No Diddy" to trend on X. He is walking a tightrope at the moment, and it would take more than just an apology for him to undo his alleged past transgressions that continue to catch up with him.
