Barack Obama hasn’t been doing so hot when it comes to the tense situation over at Ferguson, Mo., flubbing two press conferences with bland, public relations-friendly briefs. Puff Daddy, however, is pretty riled up about it.
The entrepreneur posted an Instagram video pushing for the president to go to Ferguson, Mo., where civic unrest hasn’t gotten much better after it started last week.
“Look at this shit, man,” Puff Daddy says as he’s watching Ferguson footage in disbelief. “Obama — for real — get on a plane. These are your people. It’s serious baby.”
As Puff Daddy recorded the video, footage of police taking action against the protests were being broadcast. Law enforcement once again used tear gas on the protesters when nighttime fell.
Puff Daddy is one of the rappers who’s been vocal about the fallout over the Michael Brown shooting. J. Cole’s involvement has been the most notable; he’s released a protest song and paid a personal visit to Ferguson.
