Twitter seems to think Diddy was being petty by shouting out Cassie during his acceptance speech at the 2022 BET Awards in front of his new girlfriend Yung Miami.
Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s BET Awards.
On Friday, the network announced Diddy as this year’s honoree and has assembled an all-star performance to highlight the accomplishments of the music mogul.
Having founded Bad Boy Records in 1993, Diddy jumped started the careers of the late Notorious B.I.G., 112, Total, Faith Evans, and more. He has secured three Grammy awards and countless gold and platinum plaques. The 52-year-old has also ventured into successful entrepreneurial efforts, such as his widely popular 90s to 2000s clothing line, Sean John and Ciroc Vodka. In 2013, he launched his digital cable network, Revolt TV, which is the home to “Drink Champs” and Yung Miami’s podcast, “Caresha Please.”
The BET Awards tribute included some of Diddy’s artists, friends, and collaborators, including The Lox, Busta Rhymes, Jodeci, Nas, Lil Kim, Bryson Tiller, Faith Evans, and The Maverick City Choir. The performance is expected to cover an array of Diddy records, both performed and/or produced by him.
Immediately before Diddy commenced his speech, his new girlfriend, Yung Miami of Caresha Please podcast, was seen supporting her beau with a placard with an inscription that reads “Go Papi!”.
Diddy did not give a shoutout to Yung Miami in his speech as he rather celebrated his ex Cassie while Yung Miami was cheering him up.
This got Twitter users talking. Some users alleged that Diddy seems to cherish Cassie over the ‘Caresha Please’ host while others revealed the rapper was rather embarrassing his new girlfriend in public.
Below is the video of the moment Diddy was thanking Cassie. Also, scroll to see the Twitter reactions.
