Peloton Pausing Use Of Diddy’s Music From Fitness Classes After Domestic Violence Video

Peloton is halting the use of all music from Sean “Diddy” Combs” amid the release of the horrific video of him beating his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura.

The popular exercise equipment company released a message on its Facebook member page on Monday, May 20, announcing the “pause” of Diddy’s musical library in Peloton’s fitness classes. The update came in response to a Peloton member who encouraged Peloton to remove the hip-hop mogul’s music from the featured artist series for Bad Boy Entertainment.

“Thank you for sharing your concerns. We take this issue very seriously and can confirm Peloton has paused the use of Sean Combs’ music, as well as removed the Bad Boy Entertainment Artist Series, on our platform,” they wrote.

“This means our Instructors are no longer using his music in any newly produced classes. Again, thank you for sharing your concerns and thank you for being a Member of our Peloton community.”

Diddy’s music was included in two different featured artist series on Peloton that were released in 2021 and 2023. But with Diddy admitting to brutally beating Cassie in 2016 in the video that was only recently released, Peloton has become the first company to take a public stance against him and his music.

The disgraced Bad Boy founder joins Ye, widely known as Kanye West, in having his music removed from Peloton classes due to controversy. Peloton stopped the use of Ye’s music in 2022 in response to his antisemitic remarks.

Diddy released a video apology on Sunday, May 19, owning up to a video CNN released of him beating Cassie inside a hotel hallway in 2016. He said he was “truly sorry” for the “inexcusable” actions that occurred when he was at “rock bottom.”

“I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now,” he said.

His apology is a different tune from the statement he initially released in December shortly after Cassie and three other women filed lawsuits against him accusing him of abuse, sex trafficking, sexual assault, and more.

“Let me be absolutely clear. I did not do any of the awful things being alleged,” the post said.

But with CNN releasing the violent video attack showing Diddy wearing only a white towel and socks while punching, kicking, shoving, and dragging Cassie in a hotel hallway, he appears to be owning up to one instance detailed in Cassie’s November lawsuit where she accused him of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse throughout their 10-year relationship.
