CIROC ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT/ SEAN COMBS DIGS OUT OLD PICS OF HIMSELF POSING WITH DARK SKINNED MODELS

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Ciroc Vodka once again attempt to address those pesky discrimination claims.

Ciroc issued this official statement last night.

“CIROC Vodka has nothing whatsoever to do with this inappropriate and offensive casting call, which was done without the brand’s knowledge or consent.  We are currently investigating how this occurred.  CIROC Vodka has created a brand that defines sophisticated celebration for all consumers, and in no way condones this practice.”

While Diddy had this to say…

“ATTN MISINFORMED BLOGGERS! Here R just a few pics frm my last 3 CIROC+IAM KING campaigns feat. women of all shades!”

– and in an attempt to convince the little people posted old photographs from various campaigns, that look like discarded out takes.

please

Err isn’t that Diddy’s former girlfriend/mother of his three children Kim Porter? What exactly is this supposed to prove???

I find all this highly amusing. Diddy/Ciroc obviously take us for being damn idiots.

LMAO! SMH!

  1. Ok, side bar, I think there are local beers and spirits in africa, boycotting heineken would be no problem if they decided to.(IMO)
    Reminds me of a story of a ugandan who went to his friends(white person) party in london, and upon reaching there, they told him there were already enough black people in the party. OH well, i guess he should have been panctual.

    Combs looks like a waiter any way in that photo.

  2. I don’t get it, does him putting out pictures of himself with dark skinned models magically changed the wording on the memo? Does this now render me unable to read english? Should I now take hallucinagenic drugs to alter my view? I see pink camels in the sky with chicken wings.

  3. It doesn’t change the memo…but that memo is a FAKE! Ciroc AND the Modeling Agency have confirmed that this is a fake. So why are we buying into this hype??? I’ve seen plenty of ads (on TV and in mags, not discarded stuff) with models of all shades…..gorgeous women.

  4. Well if they have all confirmed that the email was fake.. Then it must be true!

    I now believe Ciroc, Diddy, and the modelling agency.

    They all deserve an apology folks.

    I will get on to writing my letter of apology to them first thing tomorrow.

  5. I ASSURE YOU THE EMAIL WAS INDEED REAL. THE TALENT AGENCY IS REAL. SEVERAL AGENCIES HAD THE CASTING CALL POSTED ON THERE WEBSITE BUT THEY HAVE NOW REMOVED IT SINCE THE UPROAR.

    IMPERATIVE TALENT, ETHNICITY TALENT & TYSUM TALENT.

    AND NO, IT IS RARE THAT A DARK-SKINNED AFRICAN AMERICAN MODEL IS FEATURED IN ANY MAINSTREAM AD’S, MUSIC VIDEOS OR ANYTHING.

    THERE MAY A MODEL THAT IS MORE BROWN, WITH EUROPEAN LIKE FEATURES. BUT HARDLY EVER DO YOU SEE DARK-SKINNED AFRICAN AMERICAN MODELS FEATURED.

    THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM THAT HAS EXSISTED FOR AGES.

    THE SHYT HAS TO STOP!!!!

    BEAUTY COMES IN MORE THAT ONE FORM!

  6. @M…

    back your words up with proof, you claim to have seen the ads, where?? are they on youtube,… No I guess they are not on the net and can’t be proved, but we should just take your word for it, as you have proven to be a creditable and trustworthy source, …please

    spare us .

  7. @ FR.. the geek, do you see a white man in the back ground of that photo? His appeal just fell flat in his face. LOL(just being cheeky) BUt yes i saw him. lol

  8. I’m gonna have to side with FR on this one, we need to see proof. We have seen hardcore proof in relation to discrimination but no proof exposing it as fraud. Ciroc and Duffy are going to have to do alot better than this to persuade me. Making a statement that the memo is a fake is NOT CONFIRMATION that it is either. Showing us the original document/memo would be sufficient proof(if indeed the memo put out was actually a fake).

  9. Verbs. That photo is all the evidence u need if u look closely. He’s gone 2 great lengths 2 defend himself aswell. If it was not true, the agency would have apologised 4 it b4 he did(IMO). He should know better not 2 cross black women. Lol

  10. THOSE PICS ARE GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS IS ALL A CROC OF SHIT!!! FUCK PUFF SPATZZY aka DUFFY!!! aka CRUFFY!!! FUCK CIROC!!! AND FUCK HIS BABY MOMMA SHE IS NOT CUTE!

    HE IS THE KING OF BITCHASSNESS!!!!

  11. “Discarded outakes” is an understatement, Diddy looks like a waiter & Kim Kim looks weirder than usual.
    @Verbs, dead @ “I see pink camels in the sky with chicken wings.”.
    @M, you’re “talking” to the “world’s biggest” skeptics, we need proof.

  12. Ciroc may not have know that Diddy was a pompus Ass if you really think about it Kim is good enough to have baby after baby for Diddy but must not be good enough to marry must be her dark-skin.

    Well I will not be buying Ciroc or anything with Diddy’s name on it and I am a brown skin sister but still I thought we were moving forward not backwards black man.. Look at the color of our 1st Lady.

    WOW!!!

  13. truly disappointing but i’m glad it has happened. we have a black president and still, where is our pride? it’s almost like we hate ourselves and this add campaign is testimony to that.. we have to do better people! all of us. because subconsciously we might buy liquor from a lighter person than a darker person. that’s the real message. i check out webpages on black planet and i see how you people sweat these light skinned women and white women and fly by beautiful black women profile. but there is a flip side to this. i see my sisters indulge in the same behavior. get it together people!

  14. For me it doesn’t matter if the memo is real or fake. At this point in time we should not be bothered with stories of racism of any kind especially self hatred type racism. I am a darker complexion woman that deals with this type of self-hatred on a regular basis; I’ve been told by many black men that I was cute to be dark….as if that’s a compliment. When will we destroy the Willie Lynch Theory mentality, when we will realize that the standard of what black beauty is should not be some boxed up image or “type” of person that was created by someone other then us? All colors, shapes, and sizes are beautiful. Diddy if you did post something like that, shame on you, if not, shame on whoever did this. And CIROC if it was said and you were not aware of it at the time, don’t get caught up in the cover up, in Detroit we have a saying that goes like this, CYOA ALL THE TIME!! (cover your on azz) all the time!

  15. If this were true I wouldn’t blame Diddy. I was watching Candy Girls on e about a black female run model agency and when doing a Pherrell video she chose the two lightest because she felt it suited the artist’s audience best. The artist hired her agency she could have picked any girls she wanted. But of course scapegoating black men is easier than thinking .
