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— Hot Girl Barbie (@skylarvibes) June 8, 2021
