Diddy, the artist formerly known as P. Diddy and before that Puff Daddy, has built a hip hop empire, but his business senses might have been off recently.
Diddy decided to plug his Aquahydrate fitness drink on his on Twitter page while citing Memorial Day on Sunday: "ATTN! I’m proud to announce that @AQUAhydrate will be at the Memorial Day Parade after party in NYC!!"
The tweet got picked up by conservative Michelle Malkin's website Twitchy.com, which follows people on Twitter and attacks them for tweets.
On Monday, Diddy added more plugs:"Perform at the top of your game. #NoMatterWhat @Aquahydrate pic.twitter.com/bgL3KWt9l4" and "ATTN! Southern California! Get 2 bottles of @AQUAhydrate for $3 at @Walgreens!! Go! pic.twitter.com/a2QJZGWGCG"
Aquahydrate is co-owned by Diddy and Mark Wahlberg.
In response, Twitchy.com wrote:
Rap mogul P. Diddy/Diddy/Puff Daddy/Puffy/Sean Combs showed his patriotic spirit. Sort of. The colors of his Aqua Hydrate fitness water, which he plugged as the beverage of choice this Memorial Day weekend, are red, white, and blue. Appropriately, Diddy hosted one of his Memorial Day par-tays at a club called “Vanity.” Whelp. At least he didn’t wish anyone a “Happy Veterans Day.”
