New York rapper 50 Cent is riding with Puff Daddy. The hip-hop veteran has shared his support for Diddy following a publicized Comcast and Byron Allen racial discrimination case.
Fif went to Instagram Thursday to show the music mogul support and take aim at Comcast.
A few hours ago, Diddy came forward to call out Comcast for referencing their business relationship with his REVOLT network.
On Wednesday, the case went before the Supreme Court following publicized coverage.
At issue is whether Allen’s $20 billion lawsuit should have survived beyond the pleading stage by merely proving that his race was a “motivating factor” in Comcast’s decision to deny carriage of his company’s channels, or whether it was the sole cause, something called “but for” in legalese. The Ninth Circuit ruled in favor of Allen last year, and some of the justices found fault with the lower court’s reasoning. There also was skepticism of issuing a definitive ruling that established a lower threshold when a case is first filed, and a higher one if it reaches a trial. (Deadline)
The legal case dates back to 2015 when Allen initially sued Comcast for racial discrimination.
Allen sued Comcast and Charter Communications over racial discrimination after the cable giants refused to include his programming on their networks. Allen, Entertainment Studios chairman and CEO, owns The Weather Channel, theGriot and several television stations across the country. (Our Weekly)
