Diddy Asks NFL Player to Take a Stand in Unity

Danielle Anzures, A&E Editor

“If you do whatever you do in unity, you can’t be stopped.” Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs said in support NFL players and Colin Kaepernick in a post in a video on Instagram. The response comes after the racially charged language used by President Trump.

Combs is joining the ranks of celebrities who have called out Trump for his comments, in one post he shared a side-by-side photo of Nazis with a Trump quote saying “very fine people” on it and 49ers players with the words “sons of b—–es” on it.

“THE LINE HAS BEEN CROSSED!!!! Time to show them #blackexcellence LETS GO! #teamlove REPRESENT REPRESENT!” Combs wrote under the Tweet

In two minute-long video posted September 23, Combs offered his support to players in the NFL and urged them to unite during the Sunday games.

“My message to y’all, even though you ain’t asking, so please receive it because I rarely give ‘em in this way, y’all got a chance to do something really, really, really, really, really great tomorrow,” the rapper stated. “If you all do whatever you do in unity, you can’t be stopped. Just do the math, man. Do the math, stick together, stand up for each other, ride with each other because believe me, we’re all we got and it has nothing to do with football or business. Y’all are our stars, y’all represent us, y’all are our strong heroes. So show that strength, please.”

Trump has continued to lose support from the famous, most recently disinviting NBA star Stephen Curry and the rest of the team from the White House. The decision came after Curry said he would not be attending after Trump indirectly called Colin Kaepernick, an American quarterback football player, a “son of a b—ch,” according to the Daily News.
