There has been a recent uproar about Diddy's son, Justin Combs, as he received a $54,000 football scholarship to attend UCLA.
First of all, congrats to Justin! A football scholarship isn't easy to obtain. He had to put in a heck of a lot of work in order for UCLA to want him on their team. And at the end of the day isn't that what matters? Why are we devaluing Justin's achievements? He worked really hard and EARNED that scholarship. And at the end of the day it is important for Justin to understand the value in earning his keep. His dad's money isn't his money.
Justin even took to Twitter to defend his choice in accepting the scholarship saying: "Regardless what the circumstances are, I put that work in!!!! ... PERIOD."
As far as I understand, athletic scholarships are based on the students athletic abilities and are funded separately from the educational scholarships; he isn't taking money away from someone else who needs the financial assistance.
Some say that Diddy should give a scholarship to someone who needs and deserves it in a good will gesture of giving back.
What do you think? Is he responsible for 'giving back' because Justin doesn't need it?
