(AllHipHop News) Current Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced his plans to sell the NFL team after he faced allegations of sexual misconduct and using racial slurs. Hip Hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs quickly took to social media to let it be known he wants to buy the franchise.
"I would like to buy the [Panthers]. Spread the word. Retweet!" wrote Diddy on Twitter.
The Bad Boy founder also posted a video on Instagram. The message included Diddy expressing interest in signing quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the Panthers.
"I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year’s starting quarterback," stated the native New Yorker.
Kaepernick has accused NFL owners of colluding together to keep him out of the league because of his knee-kneeling protest against police brutality and racial injustice. He opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March and has not been signed by a team since.
Previously, Diddy expressed his support for Kaepernick. The two stars had a meeting last month which was followed by Diddy tweeting, "I’m inspired by what he’s doing for our people. Times like this we need to be united. He’s out here changing the narrative representing this #BlackExcellence."
Colin Kaepernick responded to Diddy's message with his own tweet. Kap posted, "I want in on the ownership group! Let’s make it happen!"
