Diddy Says He Wants To Buy The NFL

Diddy is looking to take matters into his own hands regarding the controversy surrounding the NFL and the national anthem. The mogul wants to buy the NFL.

The original Bad Boy first started his tweet storm by commenting “Facts” on Keith Boykin’s tweet, which read "Black players are 70% of the NFL. We have the power to defend Colin Kaepernick and Jemele Hill from the forces that would silence them."

Diddy tweeted that he had a dream of owning a NFL team once but is now looking to own the league, at least one that has a retirement plan. The recent tweets come as a response to NFL players, and their teams alike, who have protested the National Anthem, which originally stemmed from Colin Kaepernick’s 2016 kneeling protest. The National Anthem controversy has even affected ESPN cohost Jamele Hill, who was suspended from her Sportscenter show, The Six.

Diddy definitely would be the only hip-hop mogul that would create a more than successful league, seeing as how he yet again topped the Forbes list for wealthiest hip-hop artists of 2017.
