Diddy’s Revolt is being sued by five former white employees who believe his Revolt network discriminated against them because of race. But according to the company, the claims have “no merit.”

Per gossip column Page Six, the plaintiffs, all over the age of 39, worked on the Breakfast Club and claim they were fired for not being hip or Black enough.

According to documents, the group of producers suggested that Executive Vice President Val Boreland treated them with less respect than their peers. The suit claims that Boreland “was always rude, condescending and dismissive towards the [team] . . . Ms. Boreland, however, treated the African-American staff in a much friendlier and respectful manner.”

The producers also suggest that their Black counterparts would come into work intoxicated and even sleep on the floor of editing rooms.

Revolt, however, fired back with a statement by their attorney that read: “These claims are without merit and have previously been dismissed by the ECOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission].”

Diddy has not commented on the legal matter.

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
