2. Diddy (Sort Of) Apologizes To Rival Vodka Companies
Date: April 22, 2010
Best Line: “I am sorry. I am sorry that I came out with these flavors that taste so good.”
Complex says: In March of 2010, when Diddy procalimed, “If you’re not drinking Ciroc vodka, you’re drinking pee pee,” Georgi Vodka owner Martin Silver was deeply offended. After demanding an apology and never getting one, Silver decided to show up at Diddy’s office building with a camera crew and proceed to fill a toilet with bottles of Ciroc.
That same month at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Ciroc brought home two gold medals. The performance prompted this profoundly sarcastic response from Diddy, delivered from his bubble bath.
If there’s anything Diddy loves, it’s winning. So this was about as real an apology as anyone was going to get. In fairness, there isn’t much he can do about somebody else's vodka sales. But in truth, even if he could help, he probably wouldn’t.
