Mayor Adams Considering Revoking Diddy’s Key To The City



New York City Mayor Eric Adams spoke with PIX11 on Monday, May 19th and was asked about the shocking footage that surfaced just days earlier of Diddy’s brutally attacking his then-girlfriend Cassie in 2016.

He was asked whether Diddy’s key to New York City, which Adams presented to him during a ceremony in Times Square last September for decades of contributions to music and business, philanthropic support to underserved communities, could be revoked, the mayor said he and his team are currently considering it.

“I think all of us were deeply disturbed by watching that chilling video of the young lady being assaulted by him,” he said. “The committee and the team, we’ve never rescinded a key before, but we are now sitting down to see what the next steps forward are going to be.”

The reporter followed up and asked again, for a more firm response, if he’s considering taking the honor away, Adams replied: “We are taking everything under analysis and the team will come back [to] me with a final determination.”

Diddy, who was born and Harlem and raised in Mount Vernon is currently under federal investigation and facing widespread allegations of abuse and sexual assault, apologized for his behavior in the video and said he’s “committed to be a better man.” 

“I take full responsibility for my actions in that video,” he said in a statement posted to social media. Black Westchester addressed the video and his apology in the opening of the Sunday, May 19th episode of People Before Politics Radio.

  1. Yes take back the key for anyone accused of Domestic violence and or abuse of minors especially when there is footage and more than one. If one could treat a human like that especially a woman or child.. it matters not what they “ contributed “ and we are find he didn’t really “ contribute he bullied and stopped others so that he could be seen as the best and that’s not true we finding

  2. Take back the key! Puffy knew what he did to Cassie and paid 50K to keep this vile video hidden. Any man or woman who commits any heinous act be honored. We all have heard the rumors for year’s about Puffy, and money and those in his inner circle have enabled him to be the way he is. Puffy has three daughters and a mother. How would he feel if someone violently assaulted them like he did to Cassie? Another thing, Puffy needs to be thoroughly investigated for the so-called “Mysterious” death of Kim Porter, the mother of three of his children. She was about to release a tell all book, and all of sudden died. I believe Puffy had a hand in that.
