AceShowbiz - Sean "P. Diddy" Combs has left people confused after inviting Amy Schumer to discussion about social justice issues and police brutality on black community. In the latest episode of his "Revolt Black News", the rapper called the actress/comedian as well as Shaun King, Stephen Jackson and Tamika Mallory to talk about the recent shocking deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
Inspired by Diddy's successful "State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus" town hall, the podcast is "designed to report news from the perspective of black people, for black people." Thus, many people were baffled when Amy was included in the discussion.
"Diddy told y'all Biden ain't have a black agenda and then invited Amy Schumer to the emergency family meeting....," one person questioned his choice of having Amy as a guest in the episode. Another similarly reacted, "Who made Diddy the spokesperson for black people? This n***a invited Amy Schumer to speak on a virtual emergency black family meeting, lmao."
Questioning Amy's competence to talk about the issues, a third Twitter user remarked, "Diddy chose Amy Schumer the same lady who said her p***y smelled like a barnyard animal to speak on police brutality." One other user slammed both Diddy and Amy as writing, "Diddy needs to go sit his a** down! And Amy Schumer doesn't know s**t about our problems. There is nothing she can teach us."
The former "Inside Amy Schumer" star has also received equally much backlash from Twitter users, with one calling her "woke." Another added, "That's embarrassing. I specifically remember her being 'fake' arrested during a protest but smiling while taking pics for IG knowing god d**n well she wasn't doing two mins in jail, smh."
In the episode, Amy spoke on Amy Cooper, who made false report on black birder Christian Cooper in Central Park. "I look like these chicks [white women]... it made me feel, to be honest, aside from heartbroken, it made me feel furious," she said. "She [Amy Cooper] lost her job, she'll never have another job, but I want worse for her. Those claims could have led to real physical harm or death."
She also urged white people to "listen" when it comes to conversations about race. "What I would say to white people is, there's this fear of the unknown and of embarrassment," she said. "Don't be afraid to ask questions or of looking stupid, because what's at stake is people's lives."
