"I thought Diddy was in his African bag with Burna Boy. I wish him well with his new African R&B business. Thoughts and prayers."
"Listen for all the people in here saying how do I sign up… when all is said and done I don’t want you all on your 'exposing diddy' campaign bothering us with your tears you should’ve known better."
"Is he still gonna be in every artist's video like before?"
"We need a Surviving Diddy documentary. It’s time to expose him because these kids might not know better."
