Baauer says “I’m taking action” after FCC uses “Harlem Shake” in net neutrality PSA


After yesterday’s infuriating news that the FCC officially voted to pull the plug on Net Neutrality, the FCC’s chairman of the commission Ajit Pai posted a lame PSA video called “7 Things You Can Still Do on the Internet After Net Neutrality,” and there’s a part where he says “you can still ruin memes” before going into his version of the 2013 viral video meme soundtracked by Baauer’s “Harlem Shake.”

And Baauer isn’t having it. Diplo tweeted the video at him, saying, “yo @baauer did the FCC license your song for this? this is your moment to become a hero. call the lawyers.” Then Baauer replied, “I’m Taking action. Whatever I can do to stop this loser.”

You can see the cringe-worthy video and a couple Baauer tweets below:
