Addressing people in abusive relationships, Judah said that if people are going through a situation like this, they can contact him or the National Domestic Abuse Helpline. Signing off, he said: “Stop abusing someone because you’re getting cheated on, and stop cheating!”

In other videos, Judah claims his ex cheated on him. Leading up to the alleged “beating” video, Judah posted a series of Tweets directed at people who cheat. “I hate cheaters,” he said in one Tweet. “I hope y’all die in a pool filled with Hot sauce!!! [sic]”
He also posted a video wherein he talks about giving his ex-girlfriend the world and then she cheated.
As for the “beating” video in question, it was originally on Instagram Live, before circulating on Twitter in mid-January. The video, which is mostly pitch black, depicts Judah appearing to notice his ex on the street before coming out of his car to beat her.
