The celebrated music producer was booked to perform on a yacht during the Cannes Film Festival this week, but when he arrived at check-in, his name was not on the list - so the security guard refused to let him! Sounds relatable, TBH. Diplo captured the hilarious exchange on camera and uploaded the video to his Instagram with the caption, "Next time, I'm adding myself to the guest list." In the short clip, a woman from the event is trying to help him out and explain to the security guard who he is, but the security guard was not having it. LOL. "I was booked to DJ a yacht party in Cannes, but security wouldn't let me in," Diplo shared. "The yacht was empty, so I was about to take the L and go get food…." Just as he was about to take the L, the owner was walking by the check-in desk, and luckily he let him in!

The music producer has become Instagram famous for his hilarious posts and for showing his followers the ins and outs of his life on the road. Recently, Diplo has been putting on last-minute pop-up performances in random locations to promote his new music and, honestly, give people a good time (before the cops shut them down). So make sure to give this hilarious DJ a follow! And stay tuned for more laughs.
