Diddy recently sat down with Naomi Campbell on her livestream show, No Filter With Naomi, where he shared his thoughts on the upcoming 2020 election. He stated that the Black vote “is not free,” and he added that he’ll hold his vote hostage if he has to.
Diddy stated, “The Black vote is not gonna be for free. We’re gonna have to see some promises…you know, what are we getting in return for our vote? Nothing has changed for Black America.” He added, “In order for us to vote for Biden, we cant be taken for granted like we always are because we’re supposed to be democrats or because people are afraid of Trump. It’s whoever go take care of our community, whoever wants to make a deal. It’s business at this point. You know, we can’t trust politicians.
“We want to know very clearly. Just like Trump made it clear that he wanted to build a wall, Biden needs to make it clear that he’s gonna change the lives and quality of life of Black and brown people. Or else he can’t get the vote. I will hold the vote hostage if I have to.”
Kenny Burns, who is Senior Vice President of Brand Development for Diddy’s Combs Enterprises, told Diddy that his comments are “very irresponsible” and he added that the only option is to get Trump out of office. Burns then posted his comment on Instagram with the caption: “WOW @Diddy. You erase My Truthful Comment and keep the VOTE FOR TRUMP comments on Your Page. Then You Block Me…lol. And You’re really going to wait til it’s 2 Candidates to say that Your Holding ‘Our Vote’… Come on Champ! This is NOT Leadership!!! Where were You during the primaries???
