Howard University Students Upset About Diddy’s Commencement Speech
Who better to deliver this year’s Howard University Commencement speech than business extraordinaire and almost-alumni Sean Combs? The Revolt TV owner was recently asked by his alma mater to speak to the graduating class and although Diddy has the perfect street-dream story, several students aren’t as excited as he may have hoped.
Because the mogul never finished his degree over two decades ago, several uninterested students tweeted their mixed feelings of the upcoming plans:
@DarienCarter Can someone explain why Diddy, a person who never graduated from Howard, is speaking at graduation? @TheeGoldenSoul Aww diddy is speaking at Howard’s graduation.. Interesting choice since he dropped out from there and became a multi millionaire. @NurseHarris2U P. Diddy is our commencement speaker… Howard is tacky and classless.
@fivefifths What’s the issue with Diddy speaking at Howard’s commencement? He’s wealthy. He’s successful. He’s Black. He can speak well.
