Diplo Causes More Trouble On Twitter, Fires Shots At Cartoonist And Portishead Member


Having just squashed his longstanding beef with Taylor Swift, Diplo seemed to have it all under control. It didn’t take long, however, for him to find himself in more social media squabbling. As part of a cheeky preview of the upcoming Jack U rework of “Take U There” featuring Missy Elliott, Diplo filmed a seemingly random cartoon snippet with the track playing in the background and posted in on Snapchat. As it turns out, the random cartoon was a gif created by Brooklyn illustrator Rebecca Mock and used without her permission. She took to Twitter to call out the producer, and Diplo’s questionable response turned more than a few heads.

But it didn’t end there, as Diplo kept the the hits coming until the spat attracted the attention of Portishead member Geoff Barrow, who decided to jump in on the Twitter pummeling.

Although it may have been a bad one, he ended up apologizing and even changed his Twitter name to ‘Giflo’. There is no denying that Diplo can be an idiot sometimes, but we do thank him for keeping things entertaining and giving us some material to write about.
