"Forgive me for my ignorance."
Diddy is apologizing for lashing out at a club-goer this past weekend at a BET Hip Hop Awards after-party.
As previously reported, Diddy, who was co-hosting a party at Compound nightclub on Saturday with a just-released T.I., flipped out when he saw a man in the crowd drinking Grey Goose instead of Puff-endorsed Ciroc. Footage of the incident shows an amped-up Diddy screaming obscenities, including "f----t" and "n----r," and throwing a drink into the crowd—until T.I. told him to chill out.
Diddy took to his Twitter page early this morning and apologized for his actions over the weekend in a series of messages: "I'm a child [of] God and I should be better no matter what somone [sic] says to me. I'm sorry for the ignorant way I repesented [sic] myself and us," he wrote. "I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls. I know better and I am better."
He continued: "I have a responibility [sic] that I promise I will live up to. And I'm more dissapointed [sic] in myself than you know. I will humble myself and learn... Bottom line is I'm sorry to all! Pls find it in your heart to accept my apology. I will do better and be greater and a source of positivity!"
TMZ tracked down the man Diddy was attacking, Ricky Parker, who said he felt "humiliated and disrespected." Parker was incredulous that Diddy flipped out just because he was drinking Grey Goose. "You won't ever hear me support him from this moment forward," Parker said.
