AceShowbiz - 50 Cent and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs set a united front in calling out Comcast. The "In Da Club" hitmaker showed support for the music mogul after the latter issued a statement on Thursday, November 21 in response to Comcast mentioning his name in court amid racism accusations.
Diddy took to his social media account to call out Comcast for dragging him and his REVOLT networks in court after Byron Allen Entertainment Studio, a black owned company, filed a $20 billion lawsuit against it. Byron Allen accused Comcast of refusing to do business with him because he's black and preferring a "lesser-known, white-owned" networks.
Attacking the network chiefs for dragging his name into the spat, Diddy tweeted, "My name and my network, REVOLT, have been mentioned recently by Comcast in reference to the Comcast/Byron Allen US Supreme Court case as an example of Comcast’s inclusive practices with respect to African American owned cable networks.While it is true that we are in business with Comcast, it is not accurate to use my name or my network as an example of inclusion. I do not want my name to be used inaccurately so I must speak my truth."
Diddy continued, "I also want to make clear that this case is now about much more than cable distribution. It's about the civil rights of millions of African Americans and other minorities."
Not long after the statement, Fofty then chimed in on the matter. Sharing a photo of Diddy on his Instagram account, the "Power" star and executive producer wrote, "I'm with Diddy on this one Comcast bugging out they are racist."
Fiddy has been having issues with Comcast even prior to this. The network decided to no longer provide all of STARZ's channels to their customers which directly affects the viewership for the final season of "Power".
