Lil Reese Apologizes For Videotaped Assault Of Young Woman

2012_10_29_reese.jpeg Teen rapper Lil Reese has issued an apology on his Twitter page in response to a video posted last week that allegedly shows Reese beating up a young woman.

While Reese's statement may look like a confession, don't expect him to be arrested any time soon. According to the Sun-Times, police say they "are not actively investigating the beating because they don’t know who the victim is, when the incident occurred or where." They said they saved a copy of the video in case information comes forward later.

Viewer discretion advised: We're linking to, but not embedding, the video; the original was removed due to it quite rightfully violating YouTube's policy on disturbing content. While the video is barely over a minute, the violence in it escalates quickly from an exchange of words to a man appearing to be Reese full-on stomping a woman.

Lil Reese posted the following tweet on Saturday, Oct. 27.

That's a far cry from what Reese tweeted last week shortly after the video was posted. It appears this Oct. 24 tweet has since been removed from Reese's feed.
