When Diplo was named the ‘Dance Artist Of The Year' by Billboard, Diplo said in an interview that EDM is “really lame” and that “it’s a sinking ship. It’s a really lame culture.”

Diplo who has a reported net worth of $15 million dollars, said in the interview “I'm sad that I'm part of it, but I play the game.”

These quotes was met with much backlash by fans who criticised Diplo for helping build the scene that he is now calling lame. Bingo Players decided to respond by stating “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.”

Kill The Noise and Must Die! responded by saying that they agree with Diplo.
