P Diddy fights advertising executives

He releases his racey video online

P Diddy has responded to the ban of his television commercial by airing an extended version of the steamy spot online.

As previously reported, the advertisement for his fragrance ‘Unforgivable Woman’ was banned from American airwaves by advertising executives, who thought it was inappropriate and insisted he edit it.

Instead of complying, P Diddy has released an extended three-minute version of the commercial on his MySpace page.

The hip-hop mogul, whose real name is Sean Combs, also issued a statement, saying: “I feel strongly that this movie needs to be viewed and judged by the public rather than by executives.

“Some people may be uncomfortable with the sensuality and sexual content, but it is important for them to make that decision personally.”

The advertisement was originally to be aired on American television this week.
