Diddy Urges African Americans to Stay Vigilant during Coronavirus Pandemic
P.Diddy recently posted a touching speech concerning the ongoing global health crisis. The clip featured him detailing his concerns and charging the African Americans to be united.
Amid the continuous spread of the novel coronavirus, lots of celebrities have aired their concerns on the subject. Some have shared prayers, advice, and, most of all, have contributed by making donations to the cause.
Diddy, however, has come out to lash at the complacency of the government with facts on the statistics of the affected African Americans.

With over 8,000 deaths, the media mogul explained that it is "not a test" and went further to say that "we are in trouble, my people." A trouble that would not end if African Americans fail to fight.
The celebrity then asked his fans to tune in for a "mandatory family meeting," where insights on the looming danger and how to solve it will be discussed. Under the post, he wrote:
"We need to get the facts! Coronavirus is hitting our community hard. This is a STATE OF EMERGENCY!!!"
This is not the first time Diddy will be giving briefings on the situation of things. A few weeks ago, the rapper posted a clip where he addressed the healthcare professionals who have been supportive and committed to fighting the virus.
For Diddy this is the time to spend with family, making memorable experiences.
The 50-year-old asked fans online to reach out to him with ideas on how best to support the health care workers who are the frontliners.
Fans were quick to applaud his compassion, but one striking feature about the entertainer was his beard, which has been dyed into a shade of salt and pepper. One fan quipped:
"He looks good with his gray hair."
Speaking of beard dying, comedian Kevin Hart, and NFL star, Deion Sanders have joined the group of salt and pepper look.
However, rapper, 50 Cent did not think the men look as cute as their fans reported. He went on the gram to jokingly criticize the new appearance.
According to 50 Cent, he opined that the men became old due to self-isolation and didn't see it as a stylish move.
For Diddy, however, this time is not only a time to revolt or change beard color, but to spend with family making memorable experiences.
He posted a clip of his children dancing online, showing that the whole family is doing good bonding as one.
