‘I Am A SA Survivor’: Revolt Podcaster Cancels Show Due to Diddy Scandal
A journalist has announced her departure from Revolt after Diddy quickly settled a rape and abuse lawsuit filed by his ex, Cassie.
A journalist has departed from her Revolt-hosted podcast after Diddy quickly settled a rape and abuse lawsuit filed by his ex, Cassie.
Writer Dawn Montgomery took to Twitter on Monday, Nov. 20, to publicly announce the end of the Monuments To Me podcast since it is hosted on Diddy’s Revolt platform. After recording two seasons of the show, Montgomery has opted out of a third season as she makes a stand to “Believe Black Women.”
“FYI: I won’t be signing on to do the 3rd season of @revolttv’s “Monuments To Me” podcast,” she wrote. “I am a SA survivor & I cannot be a part of a show that’s supposed to uplift black women while @Diddy leads the company. Believe Black women.”
“I also feel like Revolt’s leadership not speaking on this says a lot and even though this podcast experience blessed me… I’m done,” she added.
Montgomery’s show was on a mission to “celebrate every aspect of Black women in a world that tries to ignore or destroy them.” With the show aimed at amplifying women, it makes sense why the award-winning journalist would opt out of hosting her show on Diddy’s platform.
The hip-hop mogul is seeing a drastic fall from grace after quickly settling a lawsuit Cassie filed accusing him of repeatedly raping and physically abusing her for nearly a decade. The allegations included forcing the singer to engage in sexual encounters dubbed “freak offs” with male escorts.
She also accused Diddy of blowing up rapper Kid Cudi’s car after she dated him during a brief breakup with the Bad Boy founder. While Diddy had professed his innocence against the claims by way of his lawyer, many on social media aren’t convinced and continue to speculate about him.
