Rapper and businessman Sean "Diddy" Combs is launching a social media campaign to become the next owner of the Charlotte-based Carolina Panthers.

"I will be the best National Football League owner that you can imagine", the music and fashion mogul, a.k.a. Sean Combs, explained in a video on Instagram.

"The Carolina Panthers and Mr. Richardson take these allegations very seriously and are fully committed to a full investigation and taking appropriate steps to address and remediate any misconduct", Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said in Friday's announcement.

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson says he will sell the team at the end of this season over sexual misconduct allegations.

Notre Dame will be without second-leading receiver for Citrus Bowl
The Ducks bounced back from a three-game losing streak in the middle of conference play to win three of four to end the year. The Ducks will be forced to play without its head coach, as Willie Taggart is off to Florida State after just two years.

The 81-year-old, who is a former National Football League player, has been a majority owner of the Charlotte-based team since it began playing in the National Football League as an expansion franchise in 1995.

Diddy wasted no time throwing his hat in the ring as an ownership candidate. He said that this would be to create competition between Kaepernick and Cam Newton, so he isn't implying that the team would cut ties with the current Panthers' QB.

Golden States Warrior Steph Curry also tweeted that he wants in on the purchase.

Combs returned to Twitter to announce his real intention on buying the team.

Richardson also allegedly used a racial slur towards a team scout, who is black.

Former San Diego 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who gained global notoriety when he made the controversial decision to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner", may be on Combs' shortlist to fill either spot. There are NO AFRICAN AMERICAN MAJORITY OWNERS IN THE NFL!

Richardson had previously said that the team would be sold when he died. Kaepernick jumping into an ownership group, however, would be an extraordinary turn of events.

According to Forbes, the Panthers are worth $2.3 billion. Richardson, the Panthers only owner in their history, seemingly is attempting to get out ahead of any possible repercussions from these allegations.
