How to tell people about divorce?

So my husband filed for divorce after i got a restraining order against him due to him being physically abusive. I now have to tell people about the divorce, especially before his family gets a chance to paint a bad picture about me to the community. I dont want to seem like i am speaking negatively about him and want to try to remain as classy as possible but still make it clear that he is a shitty person lol. Any advice? I dont want to end up ranting about him so hopefully keep it short. I know i dont owe him any courtesy but we do have a daughter together so there’s that..
