Sean “Diddy” Combs, a renowned figure in the music industry and business world, often finds his social media posts garnering more attention than his accomplishments. His attempts to show off often result in him becoming the subject of jokes, whether he’s aware of it or not.
Recently, he shared a video on Instagram where he proudly announced that he had athlete’s foot, implying that it was a result of his intensive workout regime. “It’s a proud day today,” he said in the video. “I been on my three-a-day workouts and I got athlete’s foot. If you ain’t got athlete’s foot, you ain’t locked in. Look at that pretty foot. You see that? Yeah. I’ma take care of it though don’t nobody get nervous. Yeah, it’s okay. Just a little itchy, burn burn.”
However, athlete’s foot, medically known as tinea pedis, is a skin infection caused by various types of fungi. It is not directly related to exercising but is often contracted in places like locker rooms, which could be at a gym. Other causes include wearing tight shoes, not changing socks regularly, or letting toenails grow too long.
This is not the first time Diddy’s Instagram posts have backfired. In 2021, he shared a story intended to demonstrate his journey to success, but instead drew skepticism from his followers.
