Diddy Explains Outburst at T.I. Party, Says He’s a ‘Child of God’
After video of a foul-mouthed Diddy bashing a club patron for drinking a libation other than Ciroc -- the vodka brand he notoriously reps -- surfaced, following the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards, held in Atlanta, the mogul has come forward to apologize for his juvenile behavior.
The Bad Boy Records founder initially took the verbal jabs at a man in attendance at Club Compound on Oct. 1, where a party occurred to celebrate T.I.'s return, Young Jeezy's performance at the pre-taped awards show and an all-around good time. However, the festivities quickly soured. "Put that s--- down," Diddy yelled at the man while holding a mic. "What the f--- you gon' do, n----? You're in my house, n----. F--- outta here!" In addition, the New York native appeared to throw something in the clubgoer's direction.
T.I., who must be careful with the moves he makes upon his recent release from prison, tried urgently to settle the matter before things escalated into what could have been a physical confrontation between Diddy and the club patron. "Puff, you got too much motherf---in' money for that s---, n----. Let them n----s drink what the f--- they want to drink. F--- that s---!" he said. "I love you n----, you know I'd go to war with you, but come on, man."
Upon media scrutiny of his actions and users of social media sites circulating the video, the Dirty Money collaborator addressed his actions via Twitter Tuesday morning (Oct. 4), apologizing for what he called "ignorance."
"I said what u had to say and that's the way I feel. Right or wrong. Don't start no won't be none !!!!" he wrote. "I'm a child [of] God and I should be better no matter what somone says to me. I'm sorry for the ignorant way I repesented myself and us. To all my childen of God ... I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls. I know better and I am better [sic]."
Although his rant was littered with grammatical errors, he continued with expressing his feelings over his lack of proper judgement. "I have a responibility that I promise I will live up to. And I'm more dissapointed in myself than you know. I will humble myself and learn. Bottom line is I'm sorry to all! Pls find it in your heart to accept my apology. I will do better and be Greater And a source of positivity! And yes this has been a 3am emotional real twitter rant! But its my real feelings. And yeshurts when I Breathe!!! Lol :) [sic]."
