Benzino calls out the Black and Brown community for not “supporting” Diddy.

During a recent podcast episode, Benzino shares his opinion on Diddy’s recent headlines. “Since when have we given the law, the system, one of ours?” he questioned.

“Since when? This man ain’t been charged with nothing criminally. Not one f*cking thing. They done went in the man’s property with tanks and army men and National Guards, and he ain’t got charged with one criminal charge right now to date. They don’t got one f*cking charge yet. I’m more upset about how our own are ready just to give him, ‘Here, take him. Lock him up.’ Since when do we do that?”

Zino faced backlash following his comments. “Diddy embarrassed the black community!!!” commented one Instagram user, “This ain’t it champ..” commented another.

We previously reported that Diddy apologized after a resurfaced video shows him physically assaulting his ex-girlfiend, Cassie in 2016. “It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you gotta do that,” he began. “I mean I hit rock bottom. But I make no excuses.” 

Diddy added, “My behavior on the video was inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video.” He continues: “I was disgusted then when I did it, I’m disgusted now. I went and sought professional help, had to go to therapy, rehab. Had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry, I’m committed to being a better man each and every day, I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”
