Sean “Diddy” Combs is taking his mogul status to a whole new level. The rapper and businessman tweeted Monday, Dec. 18 that he wants to buy the Carolina Panthers and he’s got support from NBA MVP Steph Curry and Colin Kaepernick.

Diddy’s announcement came after owner Jerry Richardson announced in a statement he’d sell the team after the 2018 season. The news comes after allegations of  “workplace misconduct” were levied against him amid an NFL investigation, according to Sports Illustrated.

Soon after, Golden State Warriors point guard Curry, offered up an investment…

…which, Diddy welcomed.

Diddy also posted a clip on Instagram, noting he wanted to give free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick the chance to become a starting QB over Cam Newton.

“I will be the best NFL owner that you can imagine,” he says. “I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year’s starting quarterback. It’s just competition, baby. It’s just competition. I will have the best halftime show, the best selection of music. And we will win Super Bowl after Super Bowl.”

But it seems like Kaepernick simply wants ownership.

Online, Diddy and Kaep got lots of support.

Others poked holes in Diddy’s decision.

And several were particularly fired up over his plans to replace Newton.
