Diddy Criticized for Including Non-Black Celebs in #Black100 Gala

Diddy has long been a purveyor of “Black Excellence,” which is why his latest move is leaving even his most loyal supporters scratching their heads.

The music mogul recently announced that he’ll soon be holding an awards gala honoring 100 individuals he believes are moving the culture forward. Although he never blatantly said the list would exclusively include Black honorees, its very name, The #Black100 List, led fans to believe it would recognize the contributions BLACK people have make in their various fields. Followers, however, soon recognized several non-Black stars included on the #Black100 list, including Khloe Kardashian, Post Malone, actress Ali Wong and Bad Boy signee Machine Gun Kelly.

Check out the list below.

Diddy has yet to confirm the above as official honorees. Many fans believe it to simply be an invite list, but that didn’t stop social media from calling out the Revolt founder. Check out reactions to the list below.
