Combs made that point in an Instagram video that he shared on Sunday, March 29.
“Let’s get people involved,” he said. “It’s not about me, it’s not about one person. Let’s figure out a way to get people involved, because people want to do something. There’s no way you can have power and not want to do something with it.
“I don’t know what true superhero story they was watching, but the true superheroes they did it for the good … Everybody got superhero in ’em,” added Combs. “It’s time for us to step this superhero s–t up, ’cause we can think anything, we can manifest anything.”
He then said that people should come together to find ways to protect the health-care system and save a U.S. economy that’s suffering because of the outbreak.
Combs also stated that people’s lives and life in general should be improved once things get better, and it would be a shame if that weren’t the case. He talked about Trump after that.
“We also can’t expect somebody that don’t give a f–k about us to save us,” Combs told his 16.3 million followers. “Its not Trump’s fault; he don’t give a f–k about us. It’s not his fault. I know what I’m getting. I know what I’m into. We gotta wake up and know what we into, and we gotta figure out how to save each other. F–k the politics and the bureaucracy and waiting for the same s–t forever.”
A lot of people responded to the clip, and many expressed gratitude to Combs for his message.
“Thank you!” wrote one Instagram user. “We healthcare workers appreciate you.”
“Speaking from the heart! lets go Diddy! 💯,” another person stated.
“U made me tear up hearing you speak,” wrote someone else. “I’ve admired you for many years but I have never heard you speak nor did I feel as though you cared as much as you are sharing now. thank you @diddy.”
