Diplo and Oliver Heldens are having 2017’s funniest Twitter beef

Major Lazer are getting a lot of love for their new Ed Sheeren remix, but one DJ who likely won’t be putting it in his sets is Oliver Heldens.

In what’s shaping up to be 2017’s funniest Twitter beef, the Dutch producer has kindly informed Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire that their Shape Of You edit isn’t up to his standards. “No offence, but this remix could have been so much better,” he tweeted at Major Lazer today. “Next time send me and let’s collab.”

It didn’t take long for Diplo to hit back in the most Diplo way possible: “If I wanted to make a future house remix with the same bassline over and over again I will hit you up you baby penis,” he tweeted at Heldens, before coming back to add “u look like a nine year old with a beard”.

Heldens’ response? “We Dutchies are sometimes a bit too straightforward lol, I’m def not a hater, but I like to speak my mind.” Enjoy all the tweets below, and be thankful things didn’t as nasty as the great Diplo v Everyone showdown of 2015.
