TMZ reports that Howard University students are upset that rapper Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs was selected to speak at the school's upcoming commencement ceremony. Students are upset because Diddy dropped out of the school and believe he should not be an eligible speaker.
However, Howard University will go forward with the plan of having Puff Daddy as a speaker, with Puff Daddy set to helm the commencement speech. A rep for Howard University stated, "Howard University continues the tradition of identifying leaders whose work has clearly contributed to the advancement of their fields and the world ... We are honored to have Mr. Combs serve as our speaker."
