Jauz and Fake Diplo had an actual, super nasty fight on Twitter

If you’ve spent any time on Twitter recently, you might have noticed that a certain Diplo parody account has caused a bit of a stir in the online dance community.

The verified account is helping promote SBS Viceland’s new satirical series, What Would Diplo Do, and whoever runs it has certainly made their mark in a few short weeks. Fake Diplo (Fiplo) has declared himself better than Mozart and Van Gogh, tweeted some handdrawn nudes from LA producer Valentino Khan, thrown shade at SoundCloud, made himself into a meme, taught everyone the true meaning of dubstepand hosted a bizarre fan Q&A that probably many of his fans thought were legit.

Not everyone is keen on the joke though. Today, Fiplo landed himself in hot water by getting on the wrong side of LA producer Jauz. It all started innocently enough, with Fiplo throwing shade at DJs who churn out underwhelming political tweets:

dj’s political tweets are always like

“yo maybe if we just had LOVE instead of HATE we could have world peace and solid vibes”

Jauz obviously didn’t appreciate the joke, and before long the real DJ and the fake DJ were embroiled in a spicy-as-hell Twitter beef. If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, Dallas dubstep selector MUST DIE! even got in on the action halfway through. See how it all went down below.

Fake Diplo’s tweets are always like

“Something negative about DJ’s or EDM that’s funny and everyone can agree on! Watch my tv show!” https://t.co/VCU9q0CLiL

you provide a lot of inspiration

I’d rather hear it from wes to my face than from some 23 yr old intern , at least then it would feel real

— JAUZ (@Jauzofficial) August 16, 2017

i didnt mean musical inspiration lol, i meant dj behavior that everyone secretly laughs at inspiration

— Diplo (@_diplo_) August 16, 2017

For the record I knew exactly what u meant by inspiration

— JAUZ (@Jauzofficial) August 16, 2017

me: *generic edm cliche*

dj ive never heard of: “THAT IS SPECIFICALLY ABOUT ME!!!”

— Diplo (@_diplo_) August 16, 2017

No sense arguing with someone literally paid to make fun of us. Show’s funny, but straight insults to a good dude are in poor taste.

If Sam is trying to do good on his terms, he should. Your jokes are funny, but the timing on this one is a lil hairy.

— Tamagotchi Papi (@MUSTDIEmusic) August 16, 2017

i dont follow him and didnt see those tweets until now. i tweet generic cliches, thinking those are specifically about you is a self own

— Diplo (@_diplo_) August 16, 2017

We all fit into your jokes because we all live the life of a DJ because we are all DJs. It’s funny but everyone is touchy today. Me too.

— Tamagotchi Papi (@MUSTDIEmusic) August 16, 2017

You’re funny and jauz is a good dude doing his good. I’m drinking coffee and feeling flustered. Let’s party? Idk put ur fukkn hands up ‍♂️

— Tamagotchi Papi (@MUSTDIEmusic) August 16, 2017

sounds fun but im a 23 year old intern. not sure if allowed

— Diplo (@_diplo_) August 16, 2017

All in all, Fiplo didn’t seem to be too troubled about the whole thing:
