AceShowbiz - Ceaser Emanuel has grabbed the headlines for the wrong reason. The main and original cast member of "Black Ink Crew" has come under fire after a video surfaced of him allegedly abusing a dog.
The footage, which seemed to be captured by a neighbor's Ring security camera, showed a man putting a dog in a cage and then kicking the cage along with the dog down a hill. He's also seen scaring the dog out of the house and kicking the dog, before proceeding to hit the dog with a foldable chair multiple times.
The face of the man in the video cannot be seen, but Ceaser's co-star Donna Lombardi seemed to confirm his identity as she responded to the video. Reposting the footage on her Instagram page, she wrote, "If you can treat a dog like this, this shows how sick of a person you truly are. I don't even get into the life of this man, but this video made me so upset. Anyone who knows me, know I LOVE animals. Especially dogs."
Donna even accused Ceaser of beating his daughter up, seemingly when they were filming the VH1 show. "Even after he beat his daughter up, @vh1 @viacom_intl & the new @blackinkcrew producers tried to protect Ceaser, even made up fake conflicting storylines about my relationship to do it! Now this, cannot be undone," she alleged.
The tattoo artist added, "I pray the people see you, @ceaserblackink, as the monster you were. Your karma has been adding up for years, but to do this to an innocent dog!?! This is crazy!" She called for charges to be brough against him as stating, "CHARGES NEED TO BE PRESSED, and CANCELLATIONS NEED TO BE MADE! THE WORLS=D IS WATCHING! EVERYONE MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! CANT CHANGE THIS NARRATIVE!"
Others have also weighed in on the viral video, with one fuming, "this is sick !" Another called for his firing from the show, "Hey @VH1 fire the f**k out of #CeaserEmanuel from #blackinkcrew. He abuses dogs."
"CANCEL THIS F**KING B***H DAVID EMANUEL AKA CEASER FROM BLACK INK CREW," a third demanded. A fourth critic said, "Wow #ceaseremanuel is an animal abuser!!!!!!! He needs to be in f**king jail I just saw a disgusting video of him abusing his own puppy with a chair #peta #blackinkcrew disgusting POS!!!!!!!!!!!! #NYPD." Someone else added, "That video of Ceaser from Black Ink hitting that dog like that has me absolutely sick… like I want to throw up…"
Ceaser has not responded to the allegations.
