Diddy Becomes Batman, Calls on Studio Executives to ‘Say the Strike Is Over’ in Halloween Skit

After Warner Bros allegedly banned Diddy from wearing his acclaimed Joker costume this Halloween, the hip-hop mogul took matters into his own hands by morphing into Batman for this year’s festivities.


In an Instagram video posted early Wednesday morning (Nov. 1), Diddy, draped in the vigilante’s costume inspired by The Dark Knight, was perched on top of a pseudo-Batmobile. “I’m tired of mediocrity. Of shortcuts. Of the greed. Of empty suits telling us that we don’t deserve more,” he says hoarsely. A little boy approaches Diddy and encourages him before heading to the streets on Halloween night.

The clip then cuts to the office of a Hollywood studio executive, holding a series of documents labeled “confidential as f–k.” Diddy’s Batman appears behind him and pushes him down onto his desk, demanding that he end the ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike. “No more negotiations. Say the strike is over,” Diddy’s Caped Crusader bellows. After an explosion, the executive is shown undressed and gagged on the street, with a sign placed next to him reading, “The strike is over! Love, the Darkest Knight.”

During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week, Diddy spoke out against Warner Bros after they complained about his 2022 costume when he transformed into Joker. “I actually got a letter from the studio that I can no longer be the Joker because it broke their trademark that I did it too good, I swear,” he said before ominously adding, “Tomorrow, Warner Bros. lawyer, the head of legal — tomorrow, watch what I do.”

Before stepping out as the Black Bruce Wayne, Diddy commented on Instagram and alleged that Warner Bros sent him legal documents forbidding him from donning the infamous Joker costume again.

“Breaking Halloween news,” he relayed in an Instagram 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 moth–fu–er 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 a– had enough time to f–k up my moth–f–king Halloween.”
