Ever heard the saying:
“If God wanted everyone to see your vision, he’d reveal it to EVERYONE!”
Recently Diddy [by the way is worth almost $820 MILLION] stated that he’s interested in expanded his brand even more by becoming the owner of a NFL team, more specifically, the Carolina Panthers. A decision which obviously didn’t sit well with sports reporter Henry Wofford who made an appearance on KRON4’s “The World According to Darya,” and COMPLETELY disrespected this man and his brand.
During Wofford’s interview he stated:
“The guy looks high right there in this video. He looks like he smoked a blunt and drank a 40. Come on, I’m not taking him seriously. Diddy’s drinking and smoking right now. The man was in another world.”
Meanwhile, Darya laughed and alluded to fact that Diddy couldn’t afford to purchase the team!
Of course, many were outraged by the accusations. In fact, celebrities like West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle took to IG with the following to say:
“I’m offended to my core. And both these clowns can’t even pay the water bills at one of @diddy estates… but THEY CANT TAKE HIM SERIOUS? “He looked like he jus finished drinking a 40?” You talking bout a owner of a vodka company! “I don’t even know what he does” @forbes do tho. “You gotta stay in yo comfort zone?” That’s the mentality of a FAILURE!! U never speak when you this STUPID AND OUT OF THE LOOP OF REALITY!!! @diddy I HOPE THEY MOTIVATED U EVEN MORE AND WHEN U BECOME THE 1st Blac @nfl owner we gone only wear yo team jerseys and make sure u get a super bowl trophy!!! Fucc these bitches and this whole way of thinking….”
Diddy never officially released a statement responding, only posting a video to his IG with the caption:
“A lot of times people see your dream as crazy… the passion you have for your dreams may make you act crazy. The dreams you have are so visionary, they call you a genius. I don’t really deal with reality when I’m trying to work toward the FUTURE!!”
It’s now being reported that Wofford has decided to issue an apology after all of the backlash. Not that we care, but he stated the following:
“Although it was said in an attempt to be funny, I realize insinuating a person may be drunk or on drugs is nothing to joke about. For that, I sincerely apologize to Mr. Combs, his fans and everyone who was offended. Dozens of Diddy’s twitter followers have accused me of playing on radical stereotypes. That was not my goal. But I understand my comments had that impact and for that, I sincerely apologize. Sean Combs has a long history of success in the music industry and he has done a wonderful job investing millions of dollars in multiple businesses. He has a great reputation for making large donations to help the community. He’s a man who has worked from the bottom to the top and for that, I respect his accomplishments. My comment was never intended ti downplay what Diddy Combs has accomplished as an entrepreneur nor was it intended to question what he’s capable of accomplishing in the future. Sean Diddy Combs has the work ethic, wisdom, dedication, and contacts to be a successful NFL owner.”
