Between Rihanna’s floral dress, Bella Hadid’s see-through catsuit, Nicki Minaj’s stunning grace and the usual glitz and glam that goes along with the Met Gala, this year’s event in New York was as legendary as ever.
During and after the gala, the celebrities in attendance were quick to share their share of celebrity-packed photos. Kylie Jenner was sure to post a few pictures herself. Besides posting many pictures of her sequence dress, her “date” Donatella Versace and the ultimate bathroom selfie, she also uploaded a glitzy photo featuring Kendall Jenner, Diddy, Wiz Khalifa, Jaden Smith, Travis Scott, and Migos.
This one got a bit more attention than the aforementioned photos because of one, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. He took a screenshot of Kylie’s photo and then uploaded it to his own Instagram page with the caption “#teamlove #blackexcellence.” It has amassed 102,000 Likes at time of publication. However, there was one little problem with the photo. He completely cropped out both of the Jenner sisters from the photo.
The comments began rolling in quickly. User FactsAboutShqad wrote, “You ah savage I swear”, Bulidhlomo added, “You rogue for that crop,” and user khuhks__ was a little more diplomatic, saying “That crop tho😂 I don’t get why some people are mad.. Like 😂 he’s talking about black excellence… Kylie and Kendall aren’t black. . It’s only natural that he cropped them out.”
Users on Twitter were so shook by the crop too, that they even gave it an official hashtag, #DiddyCrop. People were quick to use it in their vocabulary, with @Ayin_Uyo tweeting, “Sometimes you have to #diddycrop people out of your life.” User @ISingWith_Harps added, “#diddycrop – a philosophy, a solution, a revolution.”
Neither party has yet to comment about #DiddyCrop, but it seems to have definitely started a movement and conversation on social media.
