Diplo and DJ Snake slammed David Guetta on Twitter over the weekend for allegedly plagiarising their music. Snake posted a series of tweets that have since been deleted claiming the F*** Me I’m Famous DJ’s Euro 2016 tournament song ‘This One’s For You’ is “horrible” and a “fake” ‘Lean On’”.
Diplo was quick to back DJ Snake, tweeting, “You not above us @davidguetta .. U can't rip us off and go unnoticed.” Guetta has not responded to the claims. You can see further tweets from Diplo addressing the accusations below, as well as making your own mind up by comparing the two tracks.
