Howard University Revokes Diddy’s Honorary Degree Over Assault Video

Published

on

 

Howard University in Washington, D.C. has rescinded the honorary degree awarded to Sean Combs, aka Diddy, following a video surfacing that shows him physically assaulting his former girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, in 2016.

 

The university’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted to accept the return of the degree conferred upon Diddy in 2014, revoking all associated honors and privileges.

 

The decision also terminates a 2016 gift agreement with Combs, disbands the scholarship program established in his name, and returns his $1 million contribution.

 

The university stated that Diddy’s behavior in the video is “fundamentally incompatible” with its core values and beliefs, deeming him “no longer worthy” to hold the institution’s highest honor.

 

Howard University emphasized its opposition to interpersonal violence and has taken a strong stance against Diddy’s actions.

 

The university has no further comment on the matter. This move serves as a testament to the institution’s commitment to upholding its values and promoting a safe and respectful community.
