The nickname proves that the internet stays undefeated.

This was a turbulent week for Diddy. It came on the back of months and months of uncertainty and being called out for his past actions. The rap mogul was first confronted by Cassie last year in a quickly settled lawsuit that made some allegations of bad behavior in his past. But that turned out to be the very beginning of a tidal wave of lawsuits and accusations that would follow in the next few months. That culminated in the biggest threat to the rap legend's wellbeing yet when police raided two of his homes earlier this week.

As the internet so often does, it's turned to making jokes in the face of the severe allegations Diddy is facing. Because of the sexual nature of much of what he's being accused of he's garnered the nickname "The Diddler." In fact, the nickname was so popular that it was even trending on Twitter as fans reacted to new bursts of news from the ongoing story. "they're callin him The Diddler" one tweet joked alongside a picture of the rapper dressed in a green suit similar to Batman villain The Riddler. Check out one of the most viral tweets reacting to the nickname below.

The Diddy story kicked into its highest gear yet earlier this week. That started when news hit that the federal government was raiding his properties. The raids were in connection with an investigation into accusations of sex trafficking. While there isn't a ton known about these allegations at the moment information has trickled out. They reportedly took multiple electronics from both raided homes as a part of their investigation. They also arrested one of the rapper's associates after intercepting his plane in Miami.

What do you think of the internet immediately giving Diddy the nickname The Diddler? Do you think people should be taking the case a bit more seriously given what he's accused of? Let us know in the comment section below.
