UCLA Student-Athletes Come Out In Defense Of Justin Combs
Sean “Diddy” Combs caught some heat after news emerged that his son, Justin, was awarded a full athletic scholarship to UCLA. But Justin’s fellow student-athletes think the 18-year-old should be left alone since he earned the scholarship fair and square. According to TMZ:
“Diddy’s been slammed since it was announced this week his son is getting a full-ride scholarship — $54,000 worth — to play football at UCLA. The criticism is that Diddy should foot the bill himself … leaving the scholarship available for a more needy student-athlete.
However, multiple student-athletes — some on scholarship, some off — tell TMZ Diddy’s millions are a non-factor because, ‘If you’re good enough to play football that you’re getting recruited, it doesn’t matter how much your parents are making.’
Another student — a junior volleyball player — said Justin ‘should be able to get [the scholarship] if he’s qualified. If he’s good enough on field … I don’t think what his father does should play a role.’”
I agree. If Justin decided to not go to college and just ate, sh*t, and partied everyday while living off his dad’s fortune, people would have something to say. Instead the boy worked hard and earned a full scholarship, and people still have something to say. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t, so Justin, you go boy (in my Martin voice)!
