“Black Ink Crew” star Ceaser Emanuel wants to clear the air about the video that went viral of him mistreating his dog, and he claims he was set up.

Ceaser was seen out and about in New York City on Thursday night, just hours after TMZ broke the news that VH1 fired him over a horrific video of him at residence whacking one of his animals with a metal folding chair.

He claims the clip isn’t what it appears to be, and that he was merely trying to break up a fight between his dogs – until one of them attacked him.

He does say he wishes he could take it all back, but adds that at the time, he felt compelled to back down his animals in just about any way he could because he was scared of what might happen next.

In terms of the video, Ceaser asserts that it was captured by his home security camera, and he believes it was intentionally leaked on the internet.Of course, none of this is an excuse for animal cruelty.

Ceaser also claims that both animals are good now, but that he had to give one away in order to put the other through significant obedience training.

As previously reported, VH1 fired him from the hit show, saying, “We have made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel from ‘Black Ink Crew’ New York.”
