Yesterday, the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal net neutrality in a 3-2 vote led by chairman Ajit Pai. People were understandably upset and sought to give Pai a piece of their minds on social media, unfortunately catching an innocent Indian DJ of the same name in the crossfire.
Ajit Pai (the DJ) is a Goa-based artist who shares nothing with the FCC chairman besides his name. Unfortunately, several headhunters found his Instagram and began to comment their thoughts and pleas about net neutrality. Some were less kind, leaving insults about the wrong Ajit Pai on his account.
The DJ seems to have taken the misled attacks with stride, politely commenting back to his page's visitors explaining that he, actually, is fully in support of net neutrality and is the wrong target. One commenter summed up the confusion pretty well: "This is the Ajit Pai we deserve."
The FCC's Ajit Pai has also become the subject of an official takedown order issued by Baauer and label Mad Decent for the unapproved use of his track 'Harlem Shake' in a video Pai created for anti-net neutrality.
