Slim Thug is incurring the wrath of Cassie fans despite issuing a mea culpa to the singer after surveillance footage proved that Diddy viciously beat her.

The Houston-bred rapper, who was born Stayve Jerome Thomas 43 years ago, was one of the loudest voices to renounce Cassie after she filed, then settled, her multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Diddy in November 2023. She accused her former boyfriend and boss of a trove of deviancy including rape, sexual assault, physical abuse, sex trafficking and rampant drug abuse.

Slim chastised Cassie for filing the legal documents as a money play and to besmirch the reputation of the Bad Boy boss who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Now that the horrifying video of the beatdown of Cassie provides unequivocal substantiation, Slim returned to his Instagram page to tell his two million followers that he is going to “take that L.”

“I tried to ride with the Blk man who had no charges yet, but I can’t stand behind this. I’ll take this L,” he said. “But I still ride with my ppl until I see some sort of proof I don’t believe in blogs or civil suits.”

Cassie fans don’t want to hear Slim Thug’s apology

Cassie supporters, particularly women, threw that apology right back in Slim’s face. They were not in the mood to witness his contrition for speaking out against Cassie so forcefully six months ago.

“Make the apologies as loud as the disrespect,” a person wrote in the comments section. “You should do a video apologizing like you did blaming her,” opined a second one. “Sometimes it best to keep your opinions to yourself especially on matters like abuse.”

And the hits just kept coming:

  • “Perfect example why ppl need to shut up especially if you don’t know what happened‼️ I hate when ppl just pick aside because you thought she was just trying to get a bag from a successful man without even knowing the truth and this why ppl don’t come for help talk gone believe whoever doing better smh🤦🏾‍♀️”
  • “She doesn’t accept. Canceled.”
  • “He needs to zip it forever.”
  • “Keep ya apology ol squidward looking a–.”
  • “Ain’t no telling how many young female slim thug done drugged and sexually assaulted 😏🤷🏾‍♂️💯. S— ain’t never serious until it happens to someone you love ❤️”
  • “The amount of men who are still saying the same AFTER the video 🤡 Y’all are so weak and say anything to convince yourselves you have control. Your misogyny has you doing it in the form of discrediting the abuse of women.”
