Check out our Diddy/Dirty Money section for more posts about Diddy/Dirty Money.
Earlier this month, Diddy was involved in an altercation at a BET Hip-Hop Awards where he, and at least one member of the crowd, were arguing.

You can watch the video and read my full analysis, which I decided was necessary due to the tinge of bias to the coverage that was appearing everywhere that I looked.

Shortly after the incident, Diddy took to Twitter and apologized in a series of tweets.

"I'm a child [of] God and I should be better no matter what someone says to me," he wrote. "I'm sorry for the ignorant way I repesented myself and us. To all my childen of God ... I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me please. I know better and I am better. I have a responsibility that I promise I will live up to. And I'm more disappointed in myself than you know. I will humble myself and learn."

"Bottom line is I'm sorry to all," he continued. "Please find it in your heart to accept my apology. I will do better and be greater and a source of positivity! Thank y'all for listening. Thank you. Real talk. Peace."

About 10 days later, Diddy also remarked on his friendship with Kenny Burns, who was thought at one time to have been involved in the conflict.

"For the record, Kenny Burns has been a friend of mine for 20 years," he said. And even if we hit a rough patch, we'll always be friends. #all G!"

TMZ reported that the target of Diddy's comments was Ricky Parker.

As I mentioned in my analysis of the video, it appeared that Diddy may have been provoked in some way. That doesn't make it the correct way to react, of course.

During the initial reporting, people were jumping up and down saying that T.I. was checking Diddy or telling him off. But, from the video clip, this was plainly incorrect. T.I. was not even looking toward Diddy as he spoke. T.I. confirmed this in an interview with Atlanta's DJ Mami Chula, which you can listen to below.

"It wasn't a matter or a point of me trying to check Diddy," T.I. said. "I was trying to defuse the situation and keep it from becoming something that could have caused me a potential problem by even just being there. My circumstances are different from Diddy's and whoever Diddy was talking to. It was my responsibility at point to step in publicly separate myself."

"Now, I had my opinion and my opinion, I stated, but at the same time I stated out of love for Diddy, not trying to check him or belittle him or disrespect him. Me and him, we go too far back. I value our relationship too much to be grandstanding. I was really just saying 'hey, man, let's get past that - never mind that, what's going on over there. Let's get back to what we doing over here.' That's what I was saying."

"People just look for any little reason to try and blow something out of proportion to try to start stuff when there is nothing there. There is nothing there. Me and Puff, we spoke that night, we spoke the next day, we spoke today and we've been speaking on a regular basis for years. I go to his house, he comes to mind. My kids know his kids. We have a real personal relationship."

"So, I felt I know him enough, I love him enough, got enough respect for him and respect from him to be able to step in, defuse the situation and keep it from getting to a place that I couldn't do nothing. I ain't want to stand back until it got to- once it cross a certain, there ain't nothing to say. I wanted to step in before that point. But, shame on you to everybody who [is] trying to make this into more than what it really is. You just witnessed a brother moment between me and Puff and that was that. It wasn't nothing more or nothing less."

It was funny to hear the DJ back off almost immediately and blame the ever popular "internet comments."
