Diddy and 50 Cent are calling out Comcast for discrimination.

50 Cent has been vocal about having issues that involve his hit show Power, the network STARZ and the cable provider Comcast. Comcast has decided to no longer provide all of STARZ’s channels to their customers, and that directly affects the viewership for the final series of Power. Now interestingly enough, Diddy is also speaking out against Comcast, and he said the cable company is trying to use his network REVOLT as a factor in a discrimination lawsuit filed against them.

On Thursday, Diddy called out Comcast for mentioning REVOLT networks in its response to a $20 billion lawsuit from Byron Allen Entertainment Studio, a black owned company. According to a press release from Revolt, Byron Allen claimed that Comcast refused to do business with him due to race and has taken the case to the Supreme Court.

In response, Comcast argued that the decision to not do business with Allen had nothing to do with race, and mentioned that they do indeed do deals with black owned networks including REVOLT TV owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs. But Diddy does not want his name being used as a weapon on behalf of Comcast. Thursday morning, he took to Twitter to make his stance clear.

“My name and my network, REVOLT, have been mentioned recently by Comcast in reference to the Comcast/Byron Allen US Supreme Court case as an example of Comcast’s inclusive practices with respect to African American owned cable networks,” he wrote. “While it is true that we are in business with Comcast, it is not accurate to use my name or my network as an example of inclusion. I do not want my name to be used inaccurately so I must speak my truth. I also want to make clear that this case is now about much more than cable distribution. It’s about the civil rights of millions of African Americans and other minorities.”

Diddy later issued a press release furthering his argument, which prompted support from none other than 50 Cent. The executive producer posted Diddy’s statement to his own Instagram with the caption, “I’m with Diddy on this one Comcast bugging out they are racist.” There is undoubtedly more to come from this case, and V-Link Media will continue to keep you updated.
