Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson says he plans to sell the team, and Diddy’s ready to step in as the new owner.

“I would like to buy the Panthers,” the artist said in a succinct tweet. “Spread the word. Retweet!”

Richardson announced the impending move in a statement that did not mention recently reported allegations that accuse him of making sexually suggestive comments and a racial slur.

Diddy didn’t mention them either but said he wanted to make history as an African American NFL owner.
