Resigning as chairman of hip-hop TV network Revolt, Sean “Diddy” Combs faces multiple sexual assault and battery accusations dating back to the early 1990s.
Ensuring that the network stays focused on creating meaningful content for the culture and amplifying the voices of all Black people, Revolt revealed that Combs stepped down, as per a company statement posted on Instagram.
The statement which noted that Combs didn’t have an operational or day-to-day role in the business, emphasized Revolt’s commitment to the collective journey of advancing and elevating the culture.
Two lawsuits filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act accused Combs of sexual assault, with one alleging that he drugged and raped her in 1991, while the other accused him and another artist of assaulting her and a friend.
In a recent lawsuit settlement, Combs denied allegations of raping and physically abusing an R&B singer, dismissing the accusations as a “money grab.”
Established in 2013 as a music channel on Comcast, then elevated to a Black-owned media company, Revolt has continued its operations following Combs’ departure from the role of chairman.
