In the wake of the violence at the reunion show taping of “Joseline’s Cabaret,” Zeus has released a statement, Joseline Hernandez and Balistic have released a statement, and their alleged victim, Amber Ali, has lawyered up!
The Zeus Network released the following statement on Thursday:
The Zeus Network would like to thank all of our viewers for their continued support.
While our programming remains authentic, loud, provocative, raw, unscripted, and uncensored; under no circumstances, do we condone bullying, unprovoked violence, and men attacking women.
Currently, we are conducting a thorough review of the events that took place during the Joseline’s Cabaret Reunion taping. The safety of our talent, crew, guests and fans is our top priority.
We encourage anyone who encounters violence of any kind to seek help from their local authorities or visit StopBullying.gov for free and confidential resources on how to seek help.
See the original statement below.
After Zeus’ statement, Joseline scrubbed her Twitter account of all of her incriminating tweets about the alleged violence at the reunion show and she and Balistic released a joint statement.
You may recall, Joseline tweeted:
i mortal kombat one hoe Pimped slapped another 1 Pushed one into last nights episode Kiked down a few on the ground. I slapped fire out of everyone on that stage. Me n my crew. Wait for it #joselinescabaretlasvegas
Keep crying from your hospital bed with your broken ribs one kik you flew into next day Rotten mouth ass hoe
And for you dumb b**ches when you sign up for a reality show you CANNOT filed a lawsuit against anyone on the show. You dummies.
In the statement, Joseline and Balistic claimed they were “deeply saddened” by the accusations.
They went on to say “Joseline’s Cabaret” was created on the foundation of female empowerment.
The statement reads:
We are deeply saddened by the accusations made against our family at the Joseline’s Cabaret Reunion.
We would like to thank our fans for their continued support.
Joseline is the mother of a five-year-old girl and would never take any action to jeopardize her family.
Joseline’s Cabaret was created on the foundation of female empowerment. One of our program’s core values is supporting women, not breaking them down.
While we support Zeus Network in its message in condemning bullying, unprovoked violence, and meant attacking women, we strongly disagree with a correlation between these themes and the events that took place last night.
There is footage of the events and we are confident that our position is made obvious.
In a time when social media narratives easily get misconstrued, we believe our family’s response is being silenced by the facilitated deletion of both Joseline’s Instagram and Facebook accounts.
See the official statement below:
First of all, who wrote this statement?
Because in the year of our Lord 2022…Joseline nor Balistic would be using the T.I. vocabulary in this statement.
Meanwhile… Amber Ali has lawyered up.
Amber claims she had to be briefly hospitalized after Joseline allegedly kicked her in the ribs and Balistic allegedly pulled out her hair.
She took to social media on Friday and released a statement from her legal counsel that reads:
We are very saddened by the events that occurred during the taping of Joseline’s Cabaret reunion show yesterday. The acts that occurred are horrific, unacceptable, and far removed from any notion of female empowerment.
It is neither permissible nor entertaining to be the subject of intentional acts of violence, irrespective of the gender of the perpetrator committing these acts.
The networks should ensure the safety and security of its cast members, which warrants the degree of care necessary to prevent serious bodily injury or harm.
The extent of our client’s injuries and distress are to be taken very seriously and we intend to vigorously address and advocate on her behalf.

Along with the statement from her legal counsel, Amber wrote:
I am so embarrassed, mortified, and depressed.
I can’t stop replaying the events in my head over and over. Ballistic should be arrested!
He and Joseline attacked me in front of cameras, crew, production and guests!
This is wrong. I want justice. Please reach out to my attorneys with any questions.

What a mess.
The Zeus Network has become a breeding ground for foolishness and now they’ve allowed things to go too far.
