Renowned music producer Diplo, who famously campaigned for Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential race, made the case for sexual flings between straight men.
Speaking to actress Emily Ratajkowski on her “High Low” podcast, Diplo admitted to having sexual relations with a man, but insisted that it wasn’t gay because the two men did not make eye contact.
“I’m sure I’ve gotten a blowjob from a guy before,” said Diplo, who was followed by Ratajkowski, who asked: “You’re sure that’s happened?” “Yeah,” the producer replied.
“And you just don’t remember? You’re not committing to it but you’re saying you’re sure it happened?” the podcast host asked.
“For sure,” Diplo said, adding “I don’t know if it’s gay unless you like make eye contact while there’s the blowjob happening.”
The actress then claimed that Diplo’s remarks were “such a straight guy thing to say,” before the producer downplayed the gayness of his actions.
“Getting a blowjob’s not that gay, I think,” the producer added. “I think the best answer I have is I’m not not gay.” Thinking, Diplo added that “There are a couple guys… I could date, life partner-wise.”
Diplo campaigned for Joe Biden, who would later allegedly receive 81 million votes in the election, over the summer in 2020 for elderly politician’s “Get Up, Stand Up” virtual fundraiser that only raised $1 million and was attended by just 3,000 people.
The event was led by then-Senator Kamala Harris, with Diplo behind the “decks,” according to reports.
“Get Biden back in the White House,” Diplo reportedly said during the fundraiser. “We need your energy. We need you to mobilize.”
Two months later, the producer performed at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) afterparty in October, where Biden would officially accept his party’s nomination for president.
“Showing out for @JoeBiden and playing the #demconvention after party tomorrow night, sign up and come by,” Diplo tweeted advertising the Democrat event.
