Chris Brown has found himself embroiled in another domestic violence discussion. After the release of 2016 hotel footage showing Diddy physically assaulting Cassie, social media users have started revisiting Brown’s history with domestic violence, sparking comparisons between the two men.

The footage captures a disturbing altercation between Diddy and Cassie. In the video, Cassie is seen walking down a hallway, heading towards an elevator, apparently trying to get away from Diddy.
