Diddy poked fun at Warner Bros. by dressing up as Batman for Halloween.

Diddy trolled Warner Bros. on Halloween by wearing a Batman costume after the company asked him not to dress up as the Joker. In a video on Instagram, he explained that the studio claimed he was "breaching the trademark."

“Breaking Halloween news,” he said in the video. “Last year after I did the Black Joker, I got a bunch of emails from the studios telling me to not be the Joker anymore, that I was breaching the trademark. So I don’t know what I’m gonna be this year. But I will say, to the motherf*cker that took all this time, we talking about sending me six full papers — I’m not even gon’ show the business on the papers — but to tell me not to be the Joker, I wanna tell you, you win. I’m not gon’ be the Joker this year, just because your ass had enough time to fuck up my motherf*cking Halloween.”

It's not the first time Diddy has referenced getting in trouble for last year's Joker costume. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, earlier this week, he showed off a letter he received from Warner Bros. “Last year I was the Joker, and I actually got a letter from the studio that I can no longer be the Joker because they said it broke their trademark that I did it too good, I swear,” he said. “I have this letter from Warner Bros. Tomorrow, Warner Bros. lawyers, can you see me? Put this camera on me right here. Head of legal, tomorrow, watch what I do.”
