CLAIM: T.I. Slapped Diddy in Atlanta Club [VIDEO]
“Rapper T.I. Allegedly SMACKED Diddy,” blares a headline from MediaTakeOut. According to the blog, on Saturday night “Diddy had a Ciroc [vodka] party at Atlanta’s top nightclub Compound. At some point during the night, Diddy got UPSET because a lot of celebs were drinking OTHER alcohol… and started ACTING UP.”
The site goes on to claim that Diddy, who’s an ambassador for Ciroc, was “threatening people” who weren’t drinking his vodka, prompting T.I. to warn “if Diddy didn’t stop it, [he] was gonna do something that would get him locked up again.” A so-called “insider” for MediaFakeOut says, “Diddy kept acting up and T.I. slapped [Diddy].” For real? No. For MTO, “allegedly” ends up often being synonymous with “did not.”
Anyway, it’s true that Diddy got into it with a patron who was not drinking Ciroc, but as opposed to T.I. slapping him, the rapper was actually asking for everyone to calm down. T.I., who’s on probation and was just released from a halfway house, urged Diddy to chill out, noting, “I done paid enough time.”
Check out the video below of what went down, and how T.I. categorically did not slap Diddy. This was simply another example of MediaFakeOut twisting an absurd story. Warning: The video contains explicit language.
