In a recent interview, Diddy calls Black Panther a “cruel experiment.” Diddy says of the record-breaking blockbuster that brought in over $1 billion worldwide, “Black Panther was a cruel experiment because we live in 2018 and it’s the first time that the film industry gave us a fair playing field on a worldwide blockbuster, and the hundreds of millions it takes to make it.”
Diddy continued by talking about how black executives aren’t in CEO roles, “They’ll go and they’ll recruit cats from overseas. It makes sense to give (executives of color) a chance and embrace the evolution, instead of it being that we can only make it to president, senior VP…”
Diddy says that the reason why Black Panther was such a huge success is because a black person was given opportunity and resources, something that should’ve been available to people of color all along.
