Sean "Diddy" Combs Silent After His Clothing Line Found in Bangladesh Factory Where Deadly Fire Erupted

Sean "Diddy" Combs' clothing line ENYCE was among those manufactured in the Bangladesh garment factory that caught fire over the weekend, killing more than 100 workers.

Diddy himself declined to comment on the tragedy or the fact that one of his labels was made there. But Li & Fung, which operates, produces and oversees all manufacturing for the brand, did release a statement to E! News:

"Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the victims involved in the tragedy. ENYCE Kids is licensed to [Hong Kong supplier] Li & Fung. Compliance and safety are important to us and we expect all our licensees to have in place compliant standards for fire and safety conditions at any factory that may produce our brand," said Jeffrey Tweedy, president of ENYCE.

Li & Fung also expressed its sadness in a statement and noted the company will be "participating in aid efforts for immediate relief" and that "a fund will be set up for the education of the victims' children."

Remnants of clothing made for Walmart, Disney and Sears, among others, were also reportedly found in the ashes.

Meanwhile, according to CNN, three managers from the factory have been arrested and accused of locking the main gate at the facility, hampering people trying to flee the inferno

The people that run the factory need to be held accountable.  That said, the companies that own the brands being made have a duty to do periodic spot checks to ensure their vendors/suppliers/etc are doing things correctly.
