Sean "Diddy" Combs To Blame Infamous #DiddyCrop Image In The Photo Editor
"I had nothing to do with it. It was a young guy that works for me, I wanted a photo of JAY-Z, Nas, and Kendrick [Lamar]."
Sean "Diddy" Combs caught a wave of criticism late last month after a picture he uploaded to Instagram with JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Nas turned out to have been edited to remove fellow rappers French Montana and Fabolous.
The 3 magi! 3 GREAT FRIENDS! I love you guys. #BlackGreatness

During a recent interview with The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Diddy clarified the situation. He pinned the blame on his young photo editor, that, Diddy says, he had not reported to him the image has been altered.
"There is a thing in social media called #DiddyCrop," he said. "I take a lot of pictures with a lot of different celebrities because we are only all of the family and stuff. Sometimes, my photo editor, it doesn't let me know when people are taking pictures".
Diddy later joked that his friends have not spoken to him since you have uploaded the edited photo.
"There were people who were taken to those who do not deserve to be removed," Diddy added. "I had nothing to do with it. It was a young guy that works for me, I wanted a photo of JAY-Z, Nas, and Kendrick [Lamar]. So he used his technology, social skills, and that is what he did. My friends have not been talking to me for two weeks [laughs]."
In other places, Diddy confirmed his interest in purchasing the Carolina Panthers.
"I am one of the people that are bidding and looking at it," he said. "I feel that it is time for a minority ownership in the NFL, especially [as] 70% of the athletes are African-American and I think that it is important for them to see someone who looks like them in a position of participation. And I think it would be good for the NFL and for the people as a whole."
