Howard University has rescinded the honorary degree awarded to troubled American rapper and music executive, Sean Combs, also known as Diddy.

The university decided on a unanimous vote by its Board of Trustees.

The decision is against the backdrop of multiple s*xual assault charges against Diddy and the emergence of a video showing the rapper assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Cassie, in a hotel, behaviour that the university deemed fundamentally incompatible with its core values.

“The Howard University Board of Trustees voted unanimously today to accept the return by Mr. Sean Combs of the honorary degree conferred upon him in 2014,” a university spokesperson told Fox on Friday.

“This acceptance revokes all honors and privileges associated with the degree. Accordingly, the Board has directed that his name be removed from all documents listing honorary degree recipients of Howard University.”
