Sean “Diddy” Combs, the 51-year-old entrepreneur teamed up with Salesforce to launch platform called Shop Circulate, a digital marketplace that allows consumers buy products made and sold by Black-owned businesses.
Drixxon Kyse, app developer from New Jersey recent spoke out about Diddy newest platform. The Kyse siblings created an app called Circulate last year, a go-to hub for Black Businesses and Professionals. The platform allows for the circulation of wealth within our close-knit communities, while also opening the door for White and Non-Black POC to support Black Business.
The company was founded by Olivia Kyse, a junior at Rutgers University and Drixxon Kyse a senior at Science Park High School.
After Kyse, latest statements on Diddy newest platform. The 51-year-old entrepreneur has been receiving backlash from the public and has been accused of stealing Drixxon Kyse.
Social Media reaction:
This is fucked up. Diddy could have acquired the circulate app and hired the creators to maintain it. To outright steal (without even using a different name) is vile. pic.twitter.com/mqwGsZpEfs— 💋 (@oh__marion) June 5, 2021
@Diddy always loves to preach about #blackexcellence and black people sitcking together when he stole this idea from a kid from New Jersey who already named the app circulate. It’s disgusting, viscous,&low for a man that could’ve funded for this app instead decided to steal it. https://t.co/jgD7sjSie9 pic.twitter.com/52xUq2O7r9— نداء (@nidamana1) June 5, 2021
Diddy is so wrong for what he did! Did y’all know he stole an app/site from 2 black teenagers and marketed it as his own! Rather than working with them! Those boys put their all into something for Diddy to just come and steal it— Political Hottie 🥴 (@skylarvibes) June 8, 2021
