Sean “Diddy” Combs has never been one to avoid the spotlight.
Whether through music, fashion, or the simple act of playing up his celebrity persona, the hip-hop mogul is always down to do something outlandish. And tonight’s Met Gala 2017 proved no exception. Diddy attended at the annual fundraising event with R&B singer Cassie, and while their matching outfits drew attention initially, it was the man formerly known as Puff Daddy who turned the arrival into a social media frenzy.
As Cassie killed the cameras the old fashioned way, Diddy decided to break etiquette and take a seat— of all places, right in the middle of the Gala steps. Photographers snapped away at the comical sight of Diddy lounging, and it wasn’t long before social media teed off. Check out some of the best reactions below.
Some fans decided to get inside Diddy’s head and take guesses as to what he could’ve been thinking. “Diddy got that mama pose you about to get a whoopin for acting up in school,” theorizes one user, while others decided to take more outlandish directions.
Others just applauded the sheer audacity that Diddy showcased, and celebrated it through quoting some his notable rap verses. “Diddy at the Met Gala is my mood for the rest of 2017,” tweeted one fan, while another said they need a man that looks at them “like Diddy on the #MetGala carpet.”
Diddy decided to lay all these theories to rest and tweet out the simple reason for his antics: he was tired! One thing’s for certain, it will be a good while before the internet is tired of this hilarious image.
