After a new web video of Ceaser Emanuel striking a dog surfaced, he was booted from VH1’s enduring reality programme Black Ink Crew New York.
The tattoo parlour owner, 43, is seen repeatedly hitting the dog with a folding chair in the tape, which was captured by a Ring camera. The dog is also shown being caged and being pushed down a hill.
In a statement published on Facebook on Thursday, VH1 said, “We have decided to terminate connections with Ceaser Emanuel from Black Ink Crew New York.” This choice won’t affect the future season because it was almost finished being produced.
However, he tells PEOPLE that it is an old film and that Emanuel was preventing some vicious canines from harming other animals. Emanuel’s attorney, Walter Mosley, does not deny that his client is seen in the video.

“It’s sad that a film, which is likely older than a year, surfaced and caused such a commotion. We’ve talked about it and have been talking about it for a while.”
On Wednesday, Donna Lombardi, who plays Emanuel’s co-star, re-posted the video on her Instagram and criticised the tattoo artist.
“It demonstrates what a sick person you are if you can abuse a dog in this manner. I won’t even delve into this man’s life, but watching this video really hurt me. I adore animals, as anyone who knows me can attest. particularly dogs, “She only part-wrote.
