The show follows the daily activities of Emanuel’s shop, Black Ink Tattoo, in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan. He also owns studios in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Orlando and Houston.
The show is currently in production for its 10th season. Emanuel has been part of the series since its premiere in 2013.
A VH1 spokesperson said: “We have made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel from Black Ink Crew New York† Since next season production was almost finished, this decision will not affect the coming season.”
The channel is expected to handle the situation in some way during the show.
