In recent years, Diddy’s become notorious for cropping certain people out of photos he shares via social media.
If you recall, after last year’s Met Gala he cropped Kendall & Kylie Jenner out of a group photo.

This year, he removed Fabolous and French Montana (which was more than a simple crop) from a photo of Kendrick Lamar, himself, and Jay-Z.

During his appearance on Ellen, Diddy clarified what has become known as #DiddyCrop and how his photos end up on social media.
“Sometimes my photography editor, he doesn’t let me know when he’s taking people out of the pictures,” he said. “There were people taken away that didn’t deserve to be taken away, and I had nothing to do with it.”
Diddy not having final approval of what makes his Instagram seems a bit odd to us, but alright.
“This young kid that works for me, he wanted a picture of Jay-Z, Nas, and Kendrick,” he explains. “So he used his social technology skills and that’s what he did. Then, my friends haven’t been talking to me for like two weeks.”
