@LookAtDustin commented:

"That video of Diddy beating Cassie got me so messed up. He is going to burn in hell."

@MazvitaJames was floored:

"The hotel casually keeping the footage for over a decade."

@TheRickyDavila wondered:

"I’m not really sure how Sean Diddy Combs isn’t sitting in prison today after all of these years especially now with that video of him brutally assaulting his ex-girlfriend Cassie. There is no defending his monstrous actions."

@spicebae_ wrote:

"I can't imagine everything else she's endured. LOCK HIM UP RIGHT NOW."

@Taztazz__ added:

"The saddest and most chilling thing about that clip is how Cassie just lay down on the floor and didn’t move. That’s the reaction of a woman who has been abused so many times that she knows there's no point in even fighting back."

@TheCubicleChick was touched:

"Y’all. Cassie described this exact beating in her lawsuit back in December. Listed the hotel location and everything. Diddy paid $50,000 for the tape, which he kept at his residence. Then the raid happened and I believe that’s why we are seeing it now. Lock him up!"
