Diddy’s ‘Disingenuous’ Apology: Look + Listen

Following an inept attempt to address his physical assault on Cassie Ventura, 50 Cent has slammed the “disingenuous” apology video released by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.

After footage emerged last week from CNN of the musician assaulting then-girlfriend (born Casandra Elizabeth Ventura) in a hotel in 2016, the superstar rapper/writer (born Sean John Combs) took to his Instagram account with a minute-long apology video stating:

“My behaviour on that video is inexcusable.” “I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I’m disgusted” and went to say how he was at “rock bottom,” at the time and claimed he “sought out professional help, started going to therapy and rehab (and) had to ask god for his mercy and grace.”

Quick to question his motives, 50 Cent replied via social media with “This is not going to work, who is advising him right now?” “SMH bad move.”

Not the only famous musician to speak out against Diddy’s on-camera apology, Aubrey Day (who was part of the group Danity Kane launched by Diddy in 2005) has been a long-time critic of her former mentor. 

“Diddy did not apologize to Cassie,” she pointed out on X. “He apologized to the world for seeing what he did.”

Cassie Ventura’s attorney, Meredith Firetog, agreed. “When Cassie and multiple other women came forward, he denied everything and suggested that his victims were looking for a payday.” “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.”
