On Sunday, Diddy announced on social media that he would like to buy the Carolina Panthers after the team went up for sale. The team is reportedly valued at around $2.3 billion, but that’s besides the point. Colin Kaepernick and Steph Curry responded to Diddy’s tweet saying that they want in on his pitch for ownership. Bay Area reporter, Darya Folsom, aired a segment about Diddy’s ambition on her show where she pretty much laughed at the music mogul and that didn’t sit well for a lot of folks including Nipsey Hussle.
“I’m offended to my core,” Nipsey wore. “And both these clowns can’t even pay the water bill 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 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!!! F*cc these b**ches and this whole way of thinking.”
Folsom’s action infuriated a lot of Diddy’s fans who also reacted on Twitter. “Darya Folsom out here clowning Diddy in the news like she won’t be out of a job if he just makes one phone call lol,” one fan tweeted while another added, “@DaryaKRONFolsom @diddy The levels of Disrespect, Ignorance, Middle school aged immaturity and Hate from Darya Folsom and The Radio Guy is So Effing!! F**ked Up!”
I would like to buy the @Panthers. Spread the word. Retweet!

Diddy is almost worth 820 million dollars his companies over 2 billion but white people still talk about him like he’s a hoodrat, not a multimillionaire business man who continues to top each year with the most money made by any other entertainer. Shows how white people view us. pic.twitter.com/JSw0NHAFUU
