The 38-year-old DJ/producer showed up to the awards dressed in what can only be described as Julian Assange drag.
Twitter was quick to take notice.
The look is not without a knowing reference.
Earlier this month, Diplo posted a picture on Instagram of his newly dyed hair with the caption "julian assange" after the whale emoji.
Even Diplo himself got in on the meme-ery.
But the comparison is nothing new.
Tweets from as far back as 2011 have long compared Diplo to the controversial WikiLeaks founder.
Glad we got to the bottom of that.
