Diplo initially hated James Van Der Beek’s caricature of himself

Dance superstar Diplo was “hurt” by James Van Der Beek’s spoof of him the first time he saw comedy show What Would Diplo Do?.
The new series is loosely based on a day in the life of the Major Lazer star, and although Diplo is an executive producer on the show, he initially wasn’t best pleased at his portrayal because it’s so exaggerated.
“It hurt to watch it the first time,” the musician admits to Rolling Stone. “It made my stomach twist.
“I think that James plays a really funny Diplo. He’s doing his best, but he (the character)’s just an idiot. I don’t mind being ridiculed.”
