UCLA Football Recruit Justin Combs Responds to His Critics via Twitter

Justin Combs has been getting a lot of hate as of late for receiving a football scholarship from UCLA.

Why?

Well, mostly because he is the son of hip hop star Sean "Diddy" Combs and can afford to attend UCLA on his own. It makes some people mad because they think that someone who actually needs a scholarship loses it when someone who doesn't, like Justin, gets it.

Justin recently responded to his critics on Twitter:

His mother Misa Hylton Brim also defended Justin on Twitter:



I honestly don't see anything wrong with Justin getting a scholarship. The kid earned it. He is an amazing football player, so he got recruited. Along with that, he had good grades, reportedly boasting a 3.75 GPA.
