*Diddy wasn’t satisfied with President Obama’s comments on the tensions in Ferguson, Mo. in the wake of Michael Brown’s fatal shooting.
While watching coverage on cable television Monday night, the mogul took to Instagram with comments directly to the president.
“This s**t ain’t right,” Diddy said. “Obama, get on a plane — it’s serious. These are your people, baby. These are your people.”
Obama has addressed Ferguson in carefully worded statements but has yet to visit the city. “We’ve got to make sure that we are able to distinguish between peaceful protesters who may have some legitimate grievances and maybe long-standing grievances, and those who are using this tragic death as an excuse to engage in criminal behavior,” Obama said during a Monday press conference.
In the music world, everyone from J. Cole to Frank Ocean to Moby has commented on the tragedy, with St. Louis native Nelly getting in touch with Brown’s family to start up a scholarship fund in his name.
