DIDDY LOST HIS BID TO BUY THE CAROLINA PANTHERS. HARVEY: OH, YOU’RE KIDDING? YEAH. IT’S INSTEAD BEING SOLD TO HEDGE FUND MANAGER DAVID TEPPER. MORE THAN $2 BILLION HE PAID. DIDDY’S WHOLE THING IS I WANT TO BUY THE PANTHERS BECAUSE THERE ARE NO BLACK OWNERS IN THE NFL. HE TEAMED UP WITH MICHAEL RUBEN OF THE 76ERS AND STEPH CURRY AND HAD A REAL OWNERSHIP GROUP. DIDN’T HAPPEN. HARVEY: SO THE TEAM IS WORTH ABOUT WHAT THE CLIPPERS WERE SOLD FOR? IT WAS BOUGHT IN 1984 FOR $206 MILLION. WHAT A RETURN. HE’S ACTUALLY FORCED TO SELL BECAUSE HE WAS SEXUALLY HARASSING WOMEN. HARVEY: YOU HAVE OWNERS WHO ARE RACIST AND OWNERS WHO DO THIS AND THAT AND MADE A KILLING. WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK? IT ALL WORKS OUT FOR THE OLD WHITE GUY. HARVEY: YOU THINK ABOUT IT, ALL OF THESE GUYS MAKE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR DOING BAD THINGS WHERE THEY GET KICKED OUT OF THE LEAGUE. IT’S KIND OF AMAZING WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT. WE’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT IT FOR MANY YEARS. OLD WHITE MEN HAVEN’T BEEN THINKING ABOUT IT IS THE PROBLEM. HARVEY: THEY GET REWARDED IS WHAT I’M SAYING. YEAH, I KNOW. I LIKE THIS IS NEWS TO YOU! IT’S LIKE THEY GET AWAY WITH IT AROUND HERE! [LAUGHTER] WHAT IN THE WORLD? GETTING RICHER. THEY’RE JUST GETTING AWAY WITH IT. IT’S GOOD TO BE A WHITE GUY! [LAUGHTER] PRIVILEGED, HUH?
