Famous DJ and music producer Diplo went viral online after his sit-down with Emily Ratajkowski for her podcast High Low on Tuesday, March 14, 2023.

Speaking about his sexuality, the 44-year-old stated:

"I don't want to define that I'm gay but I'm not, not gay. I'm not really aroused by men, that I know about... I'm sure I've gotten a bl*wjob from a guy before."

In response, model and author Emily Ratajkowski prompted him to commit to an answer, to which Diplo replied:

"For sure. I don't know if it's gay unless you make eye contact while there's a bl*wjob happening."

As news of the podcast interview spread, a slew of reactions were seen online, both in support and against. One user @GoddessofMars2 remarked that this was just a marketing strategy, stating:

Diplo's remarks on the podcast sent internet users into a frenzy. While many netizens shared hilarious memes and sarcastic comments in response, others were left unimpressed. They remarked that he was living in "denial" and "doing anything to stay relevant."

Other users spoke in support of the music producer, stating that it was alright to be conflicted about sexual preferences. One user @LMupstate, however, was of the opinion:

"The word is Bi... not sure why people have such a hard time recognizing it; it's right between the G and T of LGBTQ+"
