Diplo and Zedd were embroiled in a Twitter spat last night (March 21) over an advert for M&Ms.
The Major Lazer co-founder criticised Zedd’s musical contribution to a new advert for the chocolate brand which features Aloe Blacc singing a cover the Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory song "The Candy Man."
Diplo accused the EDM producer of plagiarism, claiming that his production features a “fake Flume drop”, and suggested that he was motivated by money.
Zedd hit back, calling Diplo a “jealous little bitch” and told him to “shut the fuck up”.
@diplo stop being a jealous little bitch and do us all a favor and just shut the fuck up.— Zedd (@Zedd) March 22, 2016
Thank you. :-)
Never one to be left out of a Twitter clash, Deadmau5 also waded in, accusing Diplo of hypocrisy.
Referring to his Jack Ü collaborations with Justin Bieber, he wrote: “..unless it's a bieber collab... Coz that's in no way, about money. We all know zedds shit sucks. But we love him.”
