Diddy -- An Absolut Schmuck?

5/22/2008 2:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So everyone knows that Diddy is the new $100 mil brand-builder (don't say spokesman!) for Ciroc vodka -- but a source tells TMZ that the folks who make Ciroc are pissed that he's still quaffing 1800 Tequila like water.

Puff stands to make a fortune from his multi-year Ciroc deal, but the man does love his 1800 -- we hear he's been ordering it everywhere from Nobu to Prive, and Ciroc's parent Diageo -- who paid him to pump out the hooch -- isn't happy.

Neither P.'s peeps nor a Diageo rep got back to us with comment.

Ya'll give Diddy a break. He is doing a nice job repping Ciroc but he has taste. Its all about Silver. Great Stuff you should try some.

Good call Mark, I came here to post the same thing...that has irritated me since the first time I saw his commercial. If you can't even pronounce the product you have no business peddling it to the public.

It would appear that Ciroc's corporate management disagrees with you to the tune of approximately $100 million (in cash, stock options and bonuses). If, however, hell ever freezes over and YOU happen to acquire your own multinational company, then at such time YOU can decide whom to hire as public spokesperson. But for now, Diddy will happily continue to count his millions with glee. For the record, I happen to think he sounds like an idiot, but it hasn't stopped him from becoming a mogul (now has it) while many with perfect diction are bitter and BROKE.

1800??? Diddy really has no taste. How about some Patron chilled? What a joke he was in Cannes while being interviewed he said he loved being in "Cans" & the interviewer promptly corrected him. $$$ can't buy class.

"39. Voka.....no doubt about it, black people do not do the best job of pronouncing words. Maybe P-Diddy should just change his 'street' name to Silly Niggy.

Just a thought, Puff. Just a thought.

But compared to YOU, both Diddy AND Obama do a phenomenal job of MAKING money and garnering SUCCESS, now don't they? So you with your perfect diction remain obscure, broke and driving a Hundai, while Diddy with his speech impediment, travels the globe in luxury, has multiple mansions, provides a lifestyle where his children will never want for anything, is CHAUFFERED in Bentleys, and has made more money (even with his many shortcomings) in a few short years than you could make in ten lifetimes. Sucks to be so obviously inferior, doesn't it? Hey, maybe you should apply for a job as Diddy's driver! At least then you would be CLOSE to the millions that you'll never be competent enough to earn yourself. LOL!!!

Thank you Diddy for representing successful,and smart African American people, keeping and living a positive, role model worthy life. Wesley Snipes, Mike Tyson and rappers could learn a thing or two from you.
