Legendary Scott Diaz, Philadelphia-based DJ, got his gigs cancelled after he was told via email that his “image” wasn’t got. And what was the problem for ptomoters? He’s “overweight.”
According to Pulse Radio,promoters contacting Scott’s agent Kelly asking about fees and availability for an unnamed Ibiza party. After replying, whoever contacted Scott said he was “overruled,” and told Kelly that they now felt Scott’s weight didn’t fit the “image or ethos” of the party.
Scott and his agent were clearly confused by the sudden reversal, and even more upset by the body-shaming reason for cancellation. Diaz took to Facebook to vent:
“Just got told that, after *they* contacted *me* about a booking for this summer, an event has now decided they don’t want to book me because my ‘image doesn’t fit’
Come on promoters, shame on you! DJ is never about the physical appearance ! Just look at Carl Cox!
