As you hopefully have heard, the net neutrality battle has reached a serious climax, with the 3-2 vote in favor of repealing it coming to pass. In reaction, several states have sued the FCC and are hoping to keep the internet free and open…something that is in the interest of more than three-quarters of this country’s population. Beyond that, one of our favorite producers is also suing Ajit himself…for a different reason. In a frankly dim-witted move, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai posted a piece of propaganda explaining the “7 things you can still do on the internet after net neutrality.” If you want to watch it…google it if you really want to. The important point to show is that one off the songs used was Bauuer’s massive hit song ‘Harlem Shake.’ The fake Diplo called this to his attention on Twitter:

Official statement re the use of “Harlem Shake” in Daily Caller’s video of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai: neither Mad Decent nor Baauer approved this use nor do we approve of the message contained therein. We have issued a takedown will pursue further legal action if it is not removed.
