(THE COLLEGE FIX) — Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs can no longer say he has an honorary doctorate from Howard University.

The historically black university in Washington, D.C. rescinded the degree last week following a vote by its board.

The unanimous decision by its board of trustees followed the release in mid-May of a video that appears to show Combs assaulting his former girlfriend, Cassie Ventura.
