Diddy Catches Heat For Telling Black Americans Not To Vote For Joe Biden

Published

on

It’s not uncommon for Sean “Diddy” Combs to use his platform to help motivate the masses. It’s also not uncommon for the Bad Boy head honcho to encourage young people to vote with the Rock the Vote and Vote or Die movements.

Unfortunately it seems (to some) that he is doing the exact opposite.

The media mogul recently posted a video from his interview with good friend Naomi Campbell. In the clip, Diddy tells Black Americans not to automatically vote for Democratic candidate Joe Biden just because of his party affiliation. He also told viewers not to vote because they’re afraid of sitting President Donald Trump. “It’s whoever is gonna take care of our community. Whoever wants to make a deal. It’s business at this point,” Diddy stated. He added that Biden needs to make his policies pertaining to “Black and Brown people” clear “or else he can’t get the vote. I will hold the vote hostage if I have to.”

Attention to all … THE BLACK VOTE WILL NOT BE FREE THIS YEAR.

A post shared by Diddy (@diddy) on

Not surprisingly folks were quick to respond and even criticize Diddy for his words like Kenny Burns, his former right-hand man and the Senior Vice President of Brand Development for Combs Enterprises.

The video also caused a heavy debate on Twitter.

One user said: “Why would we want Biden he is a life long politician that hasn’t achieved anything except becoming Obama Vp and authoring the 94 crime bill. We already see where he wants black people.”

While another criticized Diddy for deleting all the pro-Biden comments.

“It’s one thing to post ignorant shit but to delete all comments encouraging people to vote and support Biden and keep up all the pro-Trump or all comments encouraging people not to vote. Diddy is a complete clown and I’ve lost all respect for him.”

Celebs like Jamie Foxx and Isaac Hayes also spoke out against Diddy’s proclamation, while T.I. and Killer Mike seemed to agree reposting a message from Tezlyn Figaro.

    Diddy sounds so stupid. 62,000 Americans dead and most are Minorities and he’s talking about a deal?
    No politician or business man will fix any ills or issues in our communities. “It starts at home” with our behavior first.
    You(Puffy) can start with the raunchy and fowl rap lyrics. The deadly gun
    violence and have young folks have more respect for the law, promote
    anti graffiti movement, clean up our neighborhoods, become more
    responsible family members, make our “hood” safe for women and elderly
    to want to go out. Promote black business supported by our own. Work
    with serious religious groups. Ask Hip hoppers, Blk actors and sport figures to
    unite to give back. Until then Puffy Shut up! Politicians job is to
    make balance laws that are just and not only for one specific group. And
    Trump can care less about “Minorities” he showed that already many
    times. He will call you and other voices to get votes then forget
    afterwards. Remember he ask us”What do we have to lose” ?
    Well obviously our lives under his incompetent and so called leadership!

    So this is coming from someone (Puffy)in the Entertainment Industry who may be also affected by the shut down and can’t make more money? So he now thinks like most rich. So where is this Biden attack really coming from? I don’t want to be part of a radical Cult that don’t respect health care workers, a con man who’s negligence has cost over 62,000 plus American lives and all he cares about is sending front line employees back to work and if they die or get sick he’s more in favor of the CEOs or Business owner? Human life to him is expendable. In other words(You N word) get back to work even though the house is still not safe and burning. My real supporters need to get rich again off your sweat and labor says Trump. And he has a few silly ones among us who think more about a dollar than what’s really best for those suffering. Think over it!
