Justin Combs Gets Criticism After Receiving Full Scholarship To Play For UCLA [Rich Kid Problems]
Justin Combs is coming under heavy criticism after receiving a full scholarship in the tune of $54,000 to attend UCLA this Fall. Despite having a GPA of 3.75 and being able to play the sport, that doesn’t seem to be enough. Residents of California feel the “Rich Kid” shouldn’t ride the back of tax payers, and prefer that Daddy, ahem, excuse me DIDDY foot the bill!
The harshest critics feel the money should be awarded to low-income students who cannot afford college and not to the privileged. UCLA spokesman Ricardo Vasquez felt otherwise,
“There’s a misconception out there that somehow athletic scholarships would take away money from low-income students who need need-based aid,” school spokesman Ricardo Vazquez said. “That’s not the case. Athletic scholarships are awarded strictly on the basis of athletic and academic ability.”
Justin also responded to critics last night through a series of Tweets
“Regardless what the circumstances are, I put that work in!!!! PERIOD. Regardless of what you do in life every1 is gonna have their own opinion. Stay focused, keep that tunnel vision & never 4get why u started”, he tweeted.
Regardless of who his DIDDY is, Justin not only proved he had the athletic skills to earn a scholarship, but proved himself academically. The standards at which these scholarships are given aren’t based on economic wealth, rather athleticism, so who are we to judge?
Diddy could easily pay for his son to attend, however the scholarship was something Justin earned without the help of daddy, so why shouldn’t he reap the benefits?
I mean seriously, “HE WASN’T WITH HIM SHOOTING IN THE GYM!!!”
