Joe Budden has addressed the online backlash after he removed a segment of his podcast that dealt with the Diddy Cassie lawsuit. Cassie filed a lawsuit against Diddy accusing him of rape and domestic abuse during their decade-long relationship. Diddy has denied all accusations and since settled the suit Shortly before the release of the latest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, which aired exclusively on Patreon over the weekend, Budden went on Instagram Live and said he had to do some last-minute “editing” while alluding to the legal drama between the former couple. “I had to do a little bit of editing ’cause y’all almost got me,” he said. “Y’all almost got me to be the only voice out there saying some shit. Nah, them blogs would’ve had a field day with that podcast this morning. Nope. He added: “Sometimes you got to protect your peace and your co-hosts’ peace. I ain’t playing with y’all. Budden did address the lawsuit on the podcast, but skirted around saying anything direct about Diddy or Cassie, instead commenting: “I don’t feel like I need to come in here and have word vomit about my discernment when it comes to evil shit in the industry.
