Diddy Apologizes

"I'm Sorry for the Ignorant Way

I Represented Myself"

10/4/2011 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Diddy Apologizes
Diddy
claims he "backslid and regressed" when he shouted racial and homophobic slurs at a clubgoer in Atlanta this weekend ... and now the rap mogul is begging for forgiveness.

Diddy went to his Twitter page a few hours ago ... and issued an apology to his fans for the way he acted inside Compound nightclub Saturday night ... when he threw ice at a clubgoer, threatened to fight the guy ... and then called him a "n**ga" and a "f**got."

Diddy explained, "I'm sorry for the ignorant way I repesented [SIC] myself ... I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls. I know better and I am better."

He added, "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."

TMZ spoke to the man on the receiving end of the slurs, Ricky Parker, who tells us he felt "humiliated and disrespected" by Diddy ... and claims he will no longer support the hip hop icon.

Parker tells us he couldn't believe that Diddy would attack him so ferociously, simply because he was drinking Grey Goose vodka that night and NOT Ciroc vodka, which Diddy serves as a spokesperson for.

Parker tells us, "You won't ever hear me support him from this moment forward."

Notice how the incident happened over the weekend, but it wasn't until he was exposed that he saw the light and became born again, again and wrote his "apology". Is this guy really that dim witted? Incidentally, who is he?

Diddy or whatever his name is today should really be ashamed of himself. He used the most ignorant, hateful words that we're all trying to teach our youth to forget. He insulted a variety of people in one swoop....just because they weren't drinking his brand of vodka. Really?

He proved that he can get dressed up, hang out in the Hamptons and fly a private jet, but he still is a nasty thug at heart.

I wonder how DIDDY would have reacted to the guy if he was drinking a 40 of colt 45?
