Fans online insisted that if you read Diplo’s lips when the Grammy cameras cut to him, the music producer had accused Beyoncé and her team of bribing the Recording Academy. “They bought that,” he supposedly said, according to some so-called lip readers online. While it undoubtedly looks that those are the words he used, the DJ took to Instagram to clear up all the confusion about what he said.

She did the work found the real producers and made classics, so she deserves her flowers. And when she won I was just proud to see my nomination on the screen in the huge arena.”
