Sean "Diddy" Combs disputes Gary Carr's casting as the first recurring black cast member on Downton Abbey.

According to Combs, who stars in a new viral Downton Diddy spoof on Funny or Die, the rapper-actor "already broke down that barrier" on his "favorite show of all time" -- which he repeatedly calls Downtown Abbey.

Behold: the footage of Diddy portraying Lord Wolcott, "the new owner of Downton Abbey," who lectures the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) for being "bitchy" and confesses his love for Thomas (Rob James-Collier).
