Akademiks didn’t mince words when it came to passing judgment on Quavo and Saweetie’s failed relationship.
On Tuesday (March 30) as clips of the former couple’s elevator altercation began to burn down social media, Akademiks (who previously called for Quavo’s exoneration), shared his thoughts on Twitter with his 1.2 million followers.
“That elevator video w/ Quavo and Saweetie …….. wild,” he Akademiks tweeted. “Glad they aint together no more. Clearly their relationship only look good on the gram.. it was toxic and abusive asf..”

On Tuesday (March 30), TMZ obtained footage reportedly from 2020 that appeared to show Quavo flinging Saweetie into a North Hollywood elevator as she attempted to leave with a Call Of Duty case.
Quavo and Saweetie’s breakup was publicly evident on March 19 when she insinuated cheating came into play.
“I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character,” she wrote on social media. “Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.”
The Migos superstar didn’t confirm nor deny or allegations, instead telling the world he was “disappointed” in the decision to take the news to Twitter.
Unsurprisingly, social media offered up a wide array of reactions that mirrored Akademiks but also went to pro-Saweetie and pro-Quavo.
Fans debated the validity of the video’s original state, the level of physicality in the incident as well as the intent.

He literally YANKED her into that elevator. Imagine if he didn’t see the camera? If he felt comfortable doing that to her in public just imagine what he did to her in private. That shit is so foul- no defending it.

Quavo didn’t “fight”
Saweetie they pushed each other. He wasn’t overly aggressive. The whole time he was trying to collect his shit from her. Every physical altercation is not abuse or an assault. This may seem like an oxymoron but it’s not.

Quavo is a textbook example of how abusers will gaslight tf out of you in the name of keeping up a public image. He literally tried to make her the villain. I can only imagine how many times he’s made her question who she is. Fuck him.

Quavo looked right into that camera after attacking Saweetie and then proceeded to come on this app and make himself the victim… when footage says otherwise. How are male rappers this big & dumb
— ☠️ (@TOLIVERMARAJ) March 30, 2021
The fact that Quavo and Saweetie were all y'all relationship goals last month and they were in a toxic ass relationship the whole time. Self love needs to be ya'll relationship goal moving forward.
