Diplo Shares Graphic Alleged Image of Las Vegas Shooting, Urges Gun Control
Diplo has taken to Twitter to express his disgust over the tragic mass shooting that took place Sunday night (Oct. 1) in Las Vegas at Route 91 Harvest festival.
The 38-year-old DJ -- who currently holds a Wynn Nightlife residency in Vegas under his solo moniker and Major Lazer project -- shared a graphic alleged image of the aftermath, although the source of the image has yet to be confirmed.
The image and Diplo's statement about gun control sparked a slew of comments, a conversation in which he engaged to speak up on gun control, the NRA and more.
Billboard has reached out to Diplo's camp for further comment, and out of respect for the victims prefers not to include the picture here. See the rest of Diplo's tweets below:
