VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” star Ceaser Emanuel has been fired from the show after a video surfaced allegedly showing him abusing dogs … TMZ has learned.
A spokesperson for VH1 tells TMZ, “We have made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel from Black Ink Crew New York. Since next season was close to finishing production, this decision will not impact the upcoming season.”
Sources familiar with the situation tell us they are wrapping production, but keeping it open in order to properly address the situation in the show. We’re told producers also found the viral video appalling.
A video surfaced Wednesday that allegedly shows Ceaser beating and abusing dogs — the clip made many fans sick to their stomachs, instantly.
Ceaser’s co-star Donna Lombardi reposted the clip online and said “I don’t even get into the life of this man, but this video made me so upset.”
She called on the network to cancel him completely … adding “I pray the people see you, @ceaserblackink, as the monster you are.”
The show is currently in production for its 10th season, and Ceaser’s been a part of the series since its 2013 premiere.
The show follows the daily operations of his shop, Black Ink tattoo, in Harlem … the guy also owns studios in Brooklyn, ATL, Orlando and Houston.
