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."

Celebrities Suck    

these celebrities could careless about their fans, they only care about promoting their music, liquors, books.... And they want you to buy it because you fans are the ones that are making them richer. I am a fan of myself, and of people that are not selfish, nor careless...

I don't think that he backslid or regressed at all
I think that he, for a change, didn't self-censure what he said (for cameras or A listers like J Lo) and that his real self and real attitude came out
and frandkly it was no big surprise!
have never had a high opinion of him
don't care how much ca$h he has

Good for him. He took total responsibility instead of saying something bogus like, "It was not my intention to offend anyone", etc., etc. Oh ya, it was Diddy's intention to offend, but he is admitting he was wrong and says he has and will learn. I wish more people would do what he has done and just basically admit they were an ******* and apologize instead of making worthless excuses.

You knew the kid was a small or else Diddy would have not talked as tough as he did. Diddy is a bitch!

At least this dispute was about something important. Gimme a break Poop Diddy. As Triumph the Insult Comic Dog says, "Who knew that wearing a suit was a skill?"

I hope Ciroc vodka fires Sean Combs as their spokes person! Also, where is the outrage! When Michael Richards did this a few years back he was crucified by the media!

It is not acceptable for a black person to violently spew these racial slurs and all is forgiven because they are black!

Blacks should be held to the same standard as whites when this happens!
