Diddy Reacts to Stephon Clark Autopsy: ‘I’m So F—in Mad Right Now!’
Diddy, like pretty much everyone who saw the video or read about Stephon Clark being shot by police in his grandma's backyard, is angry.
Clark, 22, was unarmed and holding only a cell phone, when Sacramento police opened fire on him, shooting him eight times, primarily in the back on March 18. According to the NY Times, the autopsy shows Clark "was shot three times in his lower back, twice near his right shoulder, once in his neck and once under an armpit. He was also shot in the leg. The neck wound was from the side, the doctor found, and he said that while the shot to the leg hit Mr. Clark in the front, it appeared to have been fired after he was already falling."
Protests for Clark occurred yesterday in Sacramento, where it was reported that a police vehicle hit a 61 year-old woman while peeling away.
As for Diddy, the rap mogul went on Instagram yesterday to express his righteous frustration with yet another name being added to a string of unarmed black men gunned down by police.
"FUCK YOUUUUU!!!!! I’m so FUCKIN MAD RIGHT NOW!!!!!" he wrote on Instagram, next to a snapshot of the cover of the NY Daily News. The headline for the paper reads: "Wallet. Skittles. Cell phone. Nothing in your hands, but being black can get you... SHOT 8 TIMES FROM BEHIND."
Diddy continued to post the cover story, voicing his frustration with each post, before finally pleading, "God Help Us please."
