Diddy Doesn’t Like Dark-Skinned Women?


According to a reader that I’ve been corresponding with this afternoon, she received an email for a Ciroc Vodka casting but was disappointed after reading she did not meet the requirements. As she continued to read the casting ad she became outraged and appalled as she was excluded from the job for being neither a white, hispanic or light skinned African American female. This led her to believe that Diddy does not like dark skinned African American woman.  (To his credit, he’s making babies by them…)

My Question is this: Why did it take so long for someone to call Diddy out on this? If you look up the commercials for his “Unforgivable” and “I Am King” cologne, you will notice that Diddy has rarely (if at all) used dark skinned nor African American woman in those ads.  For his Sean John ads, he employed both Cassie and Lauren London who are both light skinned women.

I’m not saying that it’s right but no one has complained about it before.   Check out the reader’s complaint letter to Ciroc plus the Casting Call below:
