Diddy Finally Spoke On That Viral $1 Bill Photo

Rest assured, he’s not confused by small currencies.

July 06, 2017

Sean "Diddy" Combs has addressed a 2009 photo of the rap mogul at a basketball game, looking confused/incredulous/offended by the presence of a $1 bill in a stack of $100s. The snap, taken by James Devaney, soon went viral across the internet.

The New York Times
asked Combs about the picture in a recent profile, and he gave a humbled and even relatable response:

NYT: Have you seen that picture of you online, when you’re at a basketball game and you have all this money out and it looks like you’re confused by the fact that you have a $1 bill?

COMBS: "Yeah. I love a $1 bill! I just make weird faces sometimes."

2017's viral Puff Daddy moments have included lounging on the stairs of the 2017 Met Gala, and a lawsuit brought by aggrieved white ex-employees of his media company Revolt. Perhaps the best, though, is a scene of him screaming "I'M A SAVAGE" while making sure he hung up his phone correctly. It's taken from the documentary Can't Stop Won't Stop, available now on Apple Music.
