Though being a DJ seems to have done nothing but good things for the producer, he had some less than kind words about the lifestyle associated with it.
“The DJ world is the corniest f***ing group of people,” Diplo ranted. “We’re not celebrities. We’re not famous for any good reason. We’re just really lame.”
According to the DJ, there are a select few who know how operate in the system. “Besides people like Dillon Francis, who makes fun of the whole thing, or Calvin Harris, it’s a sinking ship. It’s a really lame culture. I’m sad that I’m part of it, but I play the game,” he said.
Apparently other artists weren’t impressed with his ungrateful comments. Bingo Players called Diplo out on his statement on Twitter:
These whining bitch DJs/producers should shut the fuck up about the “industry” and what’s wrong with it. Be grateful for the life you live.

Essentially, this comes down to a matter of opinion. But there’s one thing everyone seems to agree on: Justin Bieber.Read more to see what Diplo called Justin Bieber:
