Fans believe that the AI-generated picture was real since Diddy, who has been facing sexual assault allegations from several women, wore a pink suit and sunglasses to the 2023 BET Awards.

AceShowbiz - "The Simpsons" showrunner has set the record straight. Reacting to a viral picture of Sean "P. Diddy" Combs as the animated series' character, Matt Selman confirmed that the snap was fake.

"In the current era of digital misinformation, The Simpsons 'predictions' (or, more accurately, 'coincidences') have become meaningless," the 52-year-old said in a statement to TMZ. "Any goofball can whip up an AI image based on a current event and say 'The Simpsons predicted it!' - and decent-but-easily-misled folks will believe it because they so very want it to be true."

Fans believed the image was real since "The Simpsons" has a knack for predicting the future. In the past years, it has foreshadowed Donald Trump's presidency, Lady GaGa's Super Bowl performance, the Ebola outbreak, Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox and more. In addition, the AI-generated picture was believable since Diddy wore a pink suit and sunglasses to the 2023 BET Awards.

Diddy's downfall started after his ex Cassie sued him for sexual assault last year. Although the exes have settled their legal battle, Puff continued facing similar allegations from other women.

Earlier this month, CNN released a video of Diddy abusing Cassie in a hotel back in 2016. The disgraced hip-hop mogul later issued a public apology, saying, "It's so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that."

"I was f**ked up," he admitted. "I mean, I hit rock bottom. But I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video."

Despite Diddy's earnest tone, the video received sharp rebukes from several figures in the music industry. One consistent critic was 50 Cent. The G-Unit ringleader suggested Diddy's apology only made the embattled rapper's image so much worse. "This is not going to work, who is advising him right now? SMH bad move," he wrote on Instagram.
