Watch P. Diddy’s brilliant reaction to getting pranked by Pennywise on ‘Ellen’

The rapper told DeGeneres that he's definitely not afraid of clowns

P. Diddy was the special guest on Ellen yesterday (October 26) and the talkshow host decided to prank the rapper with a particularly spooky-looking Pennywise.

DeGeneres is known for pranking her guests when they’re on the show – usually by having one of her team members jump out of the coffee table.

With Halloween just around the corner, DeGeneres told the rapper that she’d heard he was afraid of clowns. “No, impossible,” he replied.

“Why is it impossible?” DeGeneres asked, before Diddy replied, “Because I’m a black man. I have so many other things to be fearful of… a clown is not gonna scare me.”

A team member dressed as IT‘s Pennywise then jumped out of the coffee table and quite obviously, scared the rapper. You can see the prank below.

Last month, the rapper responded to Eminem’s claim that he killed Tupac. During his recent Machine Gun Kelly diss track ‘Kill Shot,’ Eminem also hints that Diddy was responsible for ordering Tupac’s death in 1996.

Jay Electronica led the backlash against Eminem, urging him to “tread carefully”.

“How dare you accuse Diddy of killing Tupac,” he said.

Now, Joe Budden claims that Diddy is aware of the reference – and he’s planning to respond.

“Nothing to speculate about. Nothing to talk about,” Budden admitted on a recent episode of the Joe Budden podcast. “Puff said it’s in his hands and he said I can tell ya. That’s the end of that. He said, ‘Yeah, there’s nothing to say about it. It’s in my hands.’ He’s wild. Period.”

Budden himself was dissed by Eminem on ‘Kamikaze’, after he previously slammed his track ‘Untouchable’ as “trash” and “once of the worst songs he’s ever heard”.
