People Are Upset at Howard University for Naming P. Diddy as Commencement Speaker because he Is a Dropout

Howard University‘s decision to have entertainment mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs deliver this year’s graduating class commencement speech is causing many people to cry foul.

The debate began raging as soon as Howard, located in Washington, DC, made the announcement Tuesday on Twitter.
