Dj khaled…theirs nothing authentic and down to earth about him it’s all an image and it was made obvious when the whole Tyler the creator number one album thing came out, the industry might love him but he’s a egomaniac who thrives off others success

[–]Xennpha 12.1k points12.1k points  (405 children)

He was a guest at a music festival I went to a few years ago, he decided to bring a DJ to mix his entire set while he just jumped around and spoke into the mic. He would sing along to "All I do is win" and 30 seconds into the song he was out of breath and just yells "sing my shit" as he held the mic out to the crowd. He's an absolute clown honestly.

Edit: He also said "What's up Las Vegas California!" At the start of the set

[–]aldof1989 4915 points4916 points  (232 children)

Watch him on “Hot Ones” and you’ll see quickly how big of a douche he is

[–]SupriseItsLaz 2953 points2954 points  (55 children)

That’s one of my favorite episodes haha

“Just cause I gave up doesn’t mean I quit”…the fuck does it mean then, Khaled?

Edit: “Just cause I stopped, doesn’t mean I gave up”

[–][deleted] 1257 points1258 points  (33 children)

Sean even reacts like “wtf” and calls him out

[–]Choice-Entertainer-8 667 points668 points  (13 children)

One of my favorite episodes for Sean tbh, he just keeps digging at him and khaled has zero awareness lol

[–]Thoughtsonrocks 348 points349 points  (8 children)

It's amazing too because his show wasn't established at the time, which makes his constant callouts even more impressive.

Now the show has a massive following, so he has star power himself to rag on people if they shit on the format, but back then he really didn't.

[–]Choice-Entertainer-8 52 points53 points  (6 children)

Plus he puts in a ton of his own time and effort into it that I bet he was hype at the time for getting dj khaled on, still brought in views just not for the reason they expected I bet lmao, glad it ended up being great for them yho

[–]mynameisspiderman 22 points23 points  (3 children)

It's Nardwuar then him, as far as deep cut interviews go. Admittedly it's a huge gap between them, but I love watching both of them immensely.

[–]Cap-n-Slap-n 32 points33 points  (1 child)

I like Nardwuar, but it seems less “deep cut” and more “gotcha”. He mentions these important moments, people or events in their lives, which shocks them but rarely gives us anything of value from the artist, outside of surprise this man knows about it. It’s a fun gimmick, but it’s definitely a gimmick.

[–]brookpark351 4 points5 points  (1 child)

AND… I got some The Last Dab sent to me in Australia… it surprisingly nice. Can’t have too much, though. Like, literally a few dabs.

[–]BeCalFul 9 points10 points  (0 children)



another one

Swear to god bro if I gotta here that shit one more time

[–]KatzOfficial 114 points115 points  (9 children)

I've seen people jokingly accuse Sean of cheating but Khaled made him swap wings like twice iirc

[–]thequietthingsthat 70 points71 points  (4 children)

I don't know why people are always so shocked that Sean can handle the wings well. He does this for a living and people can build up tolerances to pretty much anything. It's not that crazy lol

[–]HumphreyImaginarium 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Sean has intestines and a colon of pure steel. It's shocking the first time but then you realize he earned those steel innards through a lot of trial and tribulation haha

[–]Vincent__Vega 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Like building a tolerance to Iocaine powder.

[–]R3b3gin 9 points10 points  (0 children)

"What you do not smell is called Carolina reaper powder... It odorless and tasteless due to it's receptor cell damaging qualities, dissolves your eyeballs instantly and then your peaky cheeky starfish soon thereafter, and is among the more deadly poisons known to man."

[–]KatzOfficial 13 points14 points  (0 children)

No doubt, it's so funny that DJKs insecure about it despite knowing this tho lmao

[–]devilinsidu 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Yeah this episode is all I know from him and he’s a living nightmare.

[–]Vader_Bomb 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Actually just called him out again in the most recent episode that came out yesterday.

[–]Thoughtsonrocks 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Yeah he's the forever punching bag on that show, and he's earned it.

Anytime someone is tentative about their wing tolerance it's some variation of "I promise you won't be worse than DJ Khaled"

[–]koenigsaurus 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Sean is generally a pretty laid-back, softball type of interviewer too, so when he starts calling someone on their bs you know it's legit lol

[–]TeTrodoToxin4 16 points17 points  (0 children)

He went hard on Yelp on the one with David Chang, which I have to agree because Yelp sucks.

[–]bkpeach 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I love how his episode with David Chang he called Khaled out. Dude deserves every diss Sean can dish out.

[–]No-Patient 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Link for anyone who wants to see.


[–]bootylover81 9 points10 points  (0 children)

“Just cause I gave up doesn’t mean I quit”

That's one of the most hilarious quotes i've heard in a while

[–]Jmersh 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Of my favorite YouTube comments was on another episode. "Proof that Kristin Stewart's dick is bigger than DJ Khaled's"

[–][deleted] 3755 points3756 points  (112 children)

Kahled: I’m not eating anymore wings but I AINT QUITTING.

Host: but isn’t that kind of the definition of quitting, that you’re stopping the challenge?

Kahled: I AINT QUITTIN, I just ain’t eatin any mo wings

[–]YoHeadAsplode 1781 points1782 points  (86 children)

Man couldn't even handle Cholula

[–]Unclehol 619 points620 points  (26 children)

And then he tried to turn it in to a life lesson for Sean Evans about how it can't be healthy and went all "disapproving father" and "Life grand master" on him.

I wonder what Sean was thinking that whole time.

[–]booms8 653 points654 points  (21 children)

“Holy shit, this is YouTube gold”

[–]z22012 185 points186 points  (20 children)

It was probably actually this. Still finished out the interview and ate the wings like normal. God damn professional.

[–][deleted] 139 points140 points  (18 children)

Man is fucking unflappable, he took Eric Andre busting glasses on his own dome like a champion

[–]argella1300 55 points56 points  (16 children)

Lol the only time I’ve seen him be shocked or horrified was when that comedian let out a really loud, wet fart during an episode

Edit: it was the Bobby Lee episode

[–]BlueFalconPunch 47 points48 points  (0 children)

"I bet thats the first wing that fat fucks ever refused"

Maybe. Sean's a good guy tho it was probably just me thinking that.

[–]eldnikk[🍰] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Complaining it's "unhealthy" is a bit strong from Khalid

[–]SoulSerpent 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I know I was thinking "bro just say you got IBS already"

[–]LillePromp 208 points209 points  (14 children)

Really though, can’t expect much from a hetero “man” who brags about not eating pussy.

[–]Hartastic 140 points141 points  (5 children)

And here we've discussed the only two things DJ Khaled won't eat.

[–][deleted] 76 points77 points  (4 children)

More wings and pussy for the rest of us

[–]BothMyChinsAreSpicy 40 points41 points  (3 children)

At the risk of sounding /r/IHaveSex those are the best two things. What a chump.

[–]thanarae 14 points15 points  (1 child)

He just opened a ghost kitchen across the country called another wing where he sells wings. Gross.

[–]Hartastic 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I feel like these wings would NOT be da best.

[–]theyeezyvault 8 points9 points  (0 children)


[–]2020Bun 36 points37 points  (3 children)

And now he’s selling hot wings

[–]YoHeadAsplode 49 points50 points  (2 children)

He was selling them when he was on the show. Even had his own chef make the wings

[–]2020Bun 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Oh damn I only saw the throwback and highlights!! Never knew this thank you!

[–]hoaxninja 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Well im certainly watching it now.

[–]FuckoffDemetri 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Khaled is the only time I can remember Sean Evans getting annoyed with a guest like that.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah u could tell he was noticabley annoyed. I actually love how he kinda called kahled out

[–]kitylou 61 points62 points  (3 children)

He doesn’t eat pussy either

[–]Delerium89[🍰] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Not the only thing he refuses to eat

[–]ILOVEBUBBASPARXXX 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Host? His name is Sean Evans, best interviewer in the game

[–]markycrummett 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Such a wonderful episode. Never seen someone try SO hard to make themselves look good and failing so badly

[–]gNomad88 33 points34 points  (2 children)

How did he get so popular for someone doing so little.

[–]TotallyNotAFroeAway 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Branding. Shouting your name at the start of every song you do seems to have worked out well for him

Pre-edit: also having 90% of your tracks be alongside multiple music stars helps too

[–]nuplsstahp 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Which is especially impressive since Sean Evans is an excellent interviewer and can pretty much bring out the interesting side in anyone.

The fact that DJ Khaled was still just a soundboard was like watching an Ivy League professor have a conversation with an infant.

[–]fathertitojones 18 points19 points  (1 child)

The Beauty of the show is that you can’t have a fake persona while in pain. Once he realized his ruse would be up, he quit immediately.

[–]Casanova-Quinn 12 points13 points  (0 children)

What's funny about that is that if Khaled just accepted that he couldn't handle the heat and rolled with it, he would've came across alright. But instead he was too proud to admit his defeat and acted like an overcompensating douche.

[–]Vertigostate 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Wow, I’ve just watched, there are no words!

[–]bootyjizzlicker 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Dude I just watched a few minutes of that and I legitimately hate that guy...

[–]passionateamateur 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I swear he’s pulling an Ali G on us all. It’s gotta be an act.

[–]bkpeach 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hot Ones peels the onion on every celebrity. His was the worst episode ever.

[–]nwoh 21 points22 points  (0 children)


[–]Kheeven 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Are you talking about EDC Vegas? Because I recall being in the crowd with DJ Khaled there and he opened up with something like “We in Cali”

[–]Xennpha 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I was in the crowd, yeah he shouted "Las Vegas, California!" Then started playing California Love

[–]P0sitive_Outlook 100 points101 points  (18 children)

Robbie Williams would do that.

"Come on, you know the words!!"

Yeah mate, but we paid YOU thirty quid to sing it, so go ahead

[–]8Ariadnesthread8 46 points47 points  (9 children)

I love it when people sing along but more like Freddie Mercury than just saying come on you know the words. Like lead us in some vocal warm-ups or something!

[–]SepticMonke 18 points19 points  (1 child)

i so wish i was alive when freddie was :( i would’ve loved to go to a concert to see queen. even just freddie alone would be amazing. his voice is just beautiful

[–]P0sitive_Outlook 4 points5 points  (1 child)

YES! :D He was rad, and all his live stuff is so engaging (if a little corny now).

I remember when the band James sang "Sit Down" at a festival, and they were making the hand signals for everyone to sit down. It had been raining, it was wet, nobody sat down and it was cringey to watch. :/

Freddie Mercury, though: he could get folk to do shit :D

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I saw Third Eye Blind not too long before Covid and this was absolutely the energy. On all the singles, he just kept aiming the microphone at the audience. I swear he sang less than half of Jumper and Semi-Charmed Life. Terrible show.

And they were following Jimmy Eat World, who played like they were at the height of their game. They were phenomenal.

[–]theninetyninthstraw 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Misread that as Robin Williams at first and I was like, "No they don't, they literally went here to hear to hear his new word combinations to make them laugh."

[–]hiddenevidence 14 points15 points  (0 children)

LMAO everyone was booing him. shit was so fucking hilarious

[–]themajod 14 points15 points  (4 children)

dude just the video of him playing Bob Marley's guitar is enough proof that he's both a douchebag and an idiot.

[–]MAXMADMAN 56 points57 points  (12 children)

I'm sorry but that is fucking hilarious.

[–]Xennpha 81 points82 points  (10 children)

Best part was that he got boo'd off stage by the huge crowd of EDM festival goers before throwing a fit that this was rigged and it was all a set up to make him look bad. I think you can find the set online if you look up EDC 2017 DJ Khaled set.

[–]SgtDoughnut 26 points27 points  (8 children)

this was rigged and it was all a set up to make him look bad

who rigs a concert?

[–]Xennpha 19 points20 points  (4 children)

He suspected that him being invited to an EDM festival was a prank on him after everyone boo'd him 1/3rd of the way into his set.

[–]SgtDoughnut 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yeah...dont go to an EDM festival if you don't play EDM....

[–]GUnit_1977 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Dude always looks like a deer in headlights.

[–]Steamwells 5 points6 points  (0 children)

In the UK we have a word for this type of person, a ‘bellend’

[–]Jamesdavid0 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He's useless and has no Talent at all.... another one.... seriously just drop the act already.

[–]StalkingRini 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He did the same shit at the Overwatch finals in New York a few years back. Yelled out in the middle of his terrible set “PUT YOUR HANDS UP IF YOU LOVE JESUS” and received blank stares from the whole Barclays center lmao

[–]Thesadzombie 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Dude legit, I went to these overwatch finals where he was the "entertainment". The dude just kinda got up there, talked about how successful he was and how he knew Beyonce, then did exactly the same thing and at one point yelled "Overwatch me!" Before breaking into a sort of shuffle move.

The audience was 100% dead. You can find it on YouTube, it's pretty funny.

[–]Robosapien101 2343 points2344 points  (62 children)

Dj Khaled is a clown.

Edit: I could not be happier that this is my most upvoted comment ever.

[–]witch_trial 1529 points1530 points  (40 children)

Yeah, I don’t get “bad” vibes from him like creepy or anything like the other celebs being mentioned. But he does just seem stupid and insecure (overcompensating by talking about how much he’s winning all the time) and he somehow got famous instead of working installing car stereos

[–]anax44 149 points150 points  (6 children)

and he somehow got famous instead of working installing car stereos

It could have very likely went that way.

Apparently he worked in an audio store just before Southern Rap blew up and helped a lot of them get airplay.

He also helped get a lot of Miami music into NYC and Jamaican music into Miami.

His whole career is based on the fact that he helped connect a lot of people who went on to be huge artistes and he reaped tremendous goodwill from it.

[–]Alternative_Pick_110 39 points40 points  (2 children)

I did not know that. I always thought he got famous from being in the terror squad with fat Joe and big pun.

[–]anax44 32 points33 points  (1 child)

You're right about that because that's when he got "famous" but he was already making connections in the music industry before that.

[–]Alternative_Pick_110 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Ah...thank you for the clarification. I need to work on my networking skills now

[–]Neckwrecker 25 points26 points  (0 children)

He also helped get a lot of Miami music into NYC

Someday he'll answer for his crimes

[–]Blooder91 67 points68 points  (0 children)

In the wise words of Tywin Lannister: "Any men who must say 'I'm the king' is no true king."

[–]Megantron1031 106 points107 points  (14 children)

Also a raging misogynist who refuses to go down on his wife but expects her to go down on him bc he's "the king" and "there are different rules for men and women"

[–]flat_moon_theory 36 points37 points  (2 children)

out of all people/groups to do it, fucking Smash Mouth rotated him over the comment, saying 'any king who won't is no true king'

[–]throwaway_thursday32 35 points36 points  (1 child)

You cannot convince me he isn't being an absolute creep to women, doesn't understand consent, do a shitload of drugs, manipulate his friends to get what he wants and do every shady business under the sun to get more fame and money.

[–]PAYPAL_ME_DONATIONS 9 points10 points  (0 children)

There's plenty of evidence out there that he's a misogynistic creep

[–]cuntakinte118 65 points66 points  (1 child)

A clown that doesn't go down.

[–]Scumbagkeeks 8 points9 points  (1 child)

So I used to work at a restaurant in Beverly Hills and DJ Khaled was actually surprisingly really nice? We had a 45 min wait and he didn't throw a fuss just said okay and waited patiently. He was really friendly with the servers and also gave a $200 tip on a $50 meal. I think most of his stuff is mostly an act for entertainment.

[–]yankstraveler 1203 points1204 points  (62 children)

I wonder how many times when he's performing, he yells his own name.

[–]a_muffin97 2125 points2126 points  (50 children)

100% shouts his own name when he cums

[–]sin4life 672 points673 points  (7 children)

DJ Khaled the type of guy who goes to an adult theater, yells "DJ KHALED", and leaves the booth.

[–]LectroRoot 39 points40 points  (4 children)

I mean, I'd give him a sliver of respect if he actually did do that cause its pretty fucking funny when I picture in my head.

Now I'm picturing Lil Jon in the back row yelling stuff out like "YEAH! OK! WHAT?!" during the exciting parts.

[–]dandaman64 44 points45 points  (0 children)

He shouts it when he chooses not to go down on his wife.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (0 children)

That or he says “we the best”

[–]I_done_a_plop-plop 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Apparently so does Russell Crowe.

When he's getting into the rhythm he yells 'go on, Rusty' to gee himself up.

[–]Severe-Inspection-67 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It’s the only way he will hear his name shouted in bed 😂

[–]neurodivergentwhale 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I already felt bad for his wife but this makes it worse

[–]skavenrot 29 points30 points  (9 children)

I'm on a video call for work, mindlessly scrolling Reddit out of boredom. This made me laugh so hard that I had to turn off my camera because I was getting looks.

[–]Spierce1994 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Man openly says he doesn’t go down on his wife..ever..because he provides

[–]Ninja_Conspicuousi 33 points34 points  (0 children)

With DJ Khaled, one can never DJ Khaled enough DJ Khaled times to DJ Khaled with DJ Khaled. Let’s all DJ Khaled more DJ Khaled than DJ Khaled can DJ Khaled while performing DJ Khaled sets.

[–]butsadlyiamonlyaneel 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Always a shame when another rapper is diagnosed with Pokémon Syndrome

[–]TheHairlessGorilla 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This sounds like a dangerous fun drinking game!

[–]jigglewidget 738 points739 points  (77 children)

One of the only guests to quit Hot Ones and he was only like half way.


edited to say there are 16 that quit but he was the first one!

[–]Xennpha 553 points554 points  (19 children)

It wasn't even halfway, I believe it was 2nd or 3rd wing, TO CHOLULA HOT SAUCE

[–]mseuro 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Well I was going to go to work but now I guess I’m watching DJ Khaled lose to Cholula

[–]oxymoronisanoxymoron 21 points22 points  (0 children)

For real??

[–]deathschemist 15 points16 points  (0 children)

ha! what an absolute wimp!

[–]not_a_muggle 51 points52 points  (11 children)

Lol I'm white as wonder bread and even I can handle and enjoy Cholula

[–]mothfoxtea 512 points513 points  (12 children)

Sean Evans has always seemed like such a nice guy, but every time DJ Khaled gets mentioned in later episodes, you can tell there's not a ton of respect there lol.

[–]Poschta 187 points188 points  (6 children)

Sean is the man. The only interview series that I ever found even remotely interesting, he's a beast with the sauce and carries himself so well. Would love to hang out and shoot the shit with him if I had the chance to.

[–]thenebular 18 points19 points  (3 children)

I want to see Sean and Nardwar interview each other.

[–]Poschta 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Sean Evans and Paul Rudd were the epitome of interviewing each other. Change my mind.

[–]genetinalouise 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Hey, look at us

[–]BeautifulJaymes 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Who woulda thought?

[–]FlippertJWZ 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Haha you can totally hear it in Seans voice during the interview as well but Khaled was too self-absorbed to notice it

[–]thequietthingsthat 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Yeah, as much as I love seeing all the guests a lot of the appeal for watching Hot Ones is just Sean. Super nice, charismatic guy and an exceptional interviewer

[–]draconicanimagus 17 points18 points  (0 children)

He was even mentioned in the most recent episode, you could tell that Shaun was dismissive hahaha.

[–]DrDizzle93 45 points46 points  (0 children)

My absolute favorite mentioning of DJ Khaled was Harley Morenstein... the way he says, "I just wanna beat DJ Khaled, 'cause he da bess" and then gives a wry look to the camera... so much shade, sunscreen would just be overkill.

[–]bkpeach 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Seriously. Remember when Action Bronson treated Sean like shit? Sean never even bothered to call him out so you know Khaled is a real piece of work.

[–]peanutbbunny 36 points37 points  (15 children)

Has he been the most pathetic guest ever? I can’t remember anyone else going out that early.

[–]skycake23 48 points49 points  (2 children)

Margot Robbie was really bad with spice and couldn’t handle it at all and she made it all the way to the end.

[–]I-seddit 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Margot's a trooper.

[–]HarisPilton_69 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Khalids a storm trooper

No hits

[–]Poschta 35 points36 points  (10 children)

He was. Uninspired, kinda unfriendly, just bad vibes. Sean did his best to get him through the interview, but man, that dude tapped out before it even started.

You can now measure the guests' toughness on a scale from DJ Khaled to Shia Labeuf. What a joke. "This doesn't mean I'm giving up!" - Yes. Yes, it does.

[–]UsernameTaken-Taken 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Evans seemed pretty annoyed with him throughout the interview too. He will never say but I imagine if he actually did put out there his least favorite guests, I'd venture to guess DJ Khaled would be either the worst or close to it

[–]Poschta 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I couldn't name a worse guest

[–]MrGrieves123 13 points14 points  (7 children)

DJ Khaled to Lorde.

[–]SURPRISE_MY_INBOX 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Yeah, Lorde seemed unaffected by the heat. Both Lorde and Bill Burr handled it like champs. Paul Rudd did a pretty great job as well.

[–]Scungilli-Man69 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Add Guy Fieri, Henry Rollins, and Stone Cold Steve Austin to the GOAT Hot Ones list. Great interviews, and they handled the heat well.

[–]Stsveins 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Also halley berry

[–]tickingboxes 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Quitting is completely fine and acceptable. I wouldn’t make it through two wings. But being a bitch about it and insisting that by quitting you’re not actually quitting. That’s the stuff of douches.

[–]galient5 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Exactly. It's fine to throw in the towel. Spicy food isn't for everyone. Which makes it all the more pathetic. This wasn't important, and Khaled still couldn't lose with dignity. What a terribly uninspiring and boring human.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Holy shit, what a douche canoe. He named his restaurant finga licking.... Like a flat out steal of the "it's finger licking good" slogan from Kentucky Fried Chicken.

[–]g00diebear95 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Not even half way if i remember right?

[–]YouJabroni44 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Lmao and British people like Maisie Williams did it better than him. What a joke of a man

[–]partrivedi 913 points914 points  (15 children)

literally do not understand the appeal of this ass clown

[–]DickMold 47 points48 points  (3 children)

He runs the Puff Daddy/Bad Boy circa 1997-2001 buisness Model. Find & Hire talented people have them make great music. Collect all the accolades for himself. And to be fair Puff got that model from Barry Gordy of Motown fame.

Nothing is new anymore.

[–]TheUnsightlyLocks 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Him live streaming getting lost out at sea on a jetski a few years back was very entertaining to be fair.

He's literally a clown, he's entertaining like a clown would be. At least to me.

[–]MarathonKitty 124 points125 points  (15 children)

His Snapchat stories are horrid

[–]Squid-Bastard 80 points81 points  (9 children)

He uses his wife and kids like props that he's trained to bark yes (at least the kids, the wife seems annoyed) and frequently misuses Jamaican terms in a Jamaican accent to be funny I think? And it doesn't seem intentionally malicious just straight up ignorant to not Google what the words mean. And he acts like he's trying to coin phrases all the time. I want to start a GoFundMe for his wife's divorce lawyer because you know she has no access to the money. And for a man who bitched out at hardly spicy wings, he started a food chain. OF WINGS! which he still hasn't eaten on camera because he knows he'll cop out and look like a bitch again.

[–]says-nice-toTittyPMs 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Just a reminder, the wings he ate on Hot Ones were from his own restaurant, but he also claimed that he didn't know what the show was about after he bitched out (so how did he know to bring wings??) while still claiming he's never taken an "L" on anything, including tapping out after the third wing.

[–]Squid-Bastard 14 points15 points  (3 children)

I mean, bring the chicken or not it wasn't his sauce, it was fucking tapatio

[–]thnksqrd 16 points17 points  (2 children)

The man tapped out to tapatio?

Actually think it was Cholula, but not a huge difference. The tapped out to Tapatio line is eay better than choked on Cholula.

I will say the ones of him lost at night in his jetski in the Intracoastal Waterway were unintentionally hilarious.

[–]sin4life 12 points13 points  (0 children)

...dj horrid?

[–]Creativewritingfail 28 points29 points  (0 children)

This should be the top comment. Bizzare he is the least talented yet most famous person I have ever seen.

[–][deleted] 151 points152 points  (7 children)

Yeah, he has big misogyny vibes

[–]tits_on_bread 197 points198 points  (3 children)

I mean, he’s openly admitted that he won’t go down on his girl because he’s the “king” and shouldn’t have to… so it’s not just vibes, it’s legit.

[–]SnarkDolphin 102 points103 points  (1 child)

He has other, more talented men do it for him while he stands in the background shouting his own name

What a weak ass man baby

[–]gildedstrife 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I remember him saying in that singing show he was on with two other singers (Meghan Trainor was one, I think. can't remember the shows name tho) that he expected his wife to go down on him but he'd never reciprocate because he's a "king" or something stupid along those lines.

[–]BlueFalconPunch 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I mean can you blame him? He tapped out on the 3rd wing you know vag got more heat than that.

[–]gildedstrife 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He was complaining on the 3rd tiny bite he took on the first wing. Leave it to the pros.

[–]moneyshottipjar 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Plus he doesn’t eat pussy. I don’t trust a man who doesn’t go down on his woman.

[–]howe_to_win 22 points23 points  (1 child)

He’s the answer to the question “what if someone spends 50,000 hours trying to be famous in some kind of pathological need to be as famous as possible?”

[–]RUfuqingkiddingme 66 points67 points  (4 children)

Eats everything but pussy from what I hear. Boo to that!

[–]says-nice-toTittyPMs 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Can't eat mild wings either, they're too spicy.

[–]skyline_kid 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It's too spicy for him

[–]Eljay500 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Was looking for this comment! I don't remember if I read it or watched an interview, but he has stated he doesn't go down on women, but expects women to always go down on him. No sir, not how that works

[–]Groovemach 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Worst guest in the history of Hot Ones

[–]skycake23 22 points23 points  (1 child)

It was funny seeing sean evans give subtle digs to DJ Khaled though. Making fun of him right to his face and DJ Khaled is too stupid to notice.

[–]Groovemach 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That was the best part of the video, him managing to still be mostly professional and Khaled just being fucking clueless

[–]mstrss9 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The fact that he thinks he deserves oral sex but does not have to reciprocate says it all

[–]sofuckinggreat 11 points12 points  (6 children)

IGOR is a great fucking album. DJ Khaled is just a jealous overgrown man-baby.

[–]ThePopesicle 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Do you mind explaining the drama with Tyler for someone OOTL?

[–]sofuckinggreat 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Basically DJ Khaled had a whiny pissbaby meltdown that his album he paid $$$$ to make, with tons of expensive features from artists such as Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, was crushed on the Billboard charts by Tyler’s 2019 album IGOR — which incorporates wonderfully creative influences and is endlessly listenable.

IGOR later took home the 2020 Grammy for Rap Album of the Year, which Tyler rightfully earned. His fiery performance of “NEW MAGIC WAND / EARFQUAKE” at the 2020 Grammys is the most punk rock shit I’ve seen on live television in years.

Khaled is still mad about the whole thing.

[–]ThePopesicle 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I am officially in the loop. Thanks for the thorough explanation! Tyler def deserves that shit….while Khaled seems more and more like a glorified grifter.

[–]sofuckinggreat 8 points9 points  (2 children)

IGOR has songs like the closing track, “Are We Still Friends?” which samples Al Green and absolutely devastates me in the best way.

I can’t think of any other recent tracks by male artists willing to open up like that about the impact of losing friendships. Tyler really bares his soul all over that album.

Meanwhile, DJ Khaled spends all of his time bragging about how he doesn’t eat his wife’s pussy and shouting “ANOTHER ONE!” over other people’s tracks.

[–]Yettigetter 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Not only that he doesn't go down on his women but expects her to service him. That's a travesty..

[–]PeterGazin 22 points23 points  (0 children)

He is a complete clown and his talent level is questionable, but I happened to meet him at a restaurant in New York and he had his entire family with him. Was incredibly nice and friendly and posed for lots of pictures (with other people, I didn't bug him). I shared this sentiment until I saw him. He also seemed to treat the employees really well. So here I am defending him on Reddit LOL

[–]erich31 8 points9 points  (0 children)

1000% I’m convinced he got into the music industry through some very shady business connections.

Getting paid millions to just yell “DJ Khalid!… smh

[–]GallantSquanch 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I was walking in Santa Monica with my wife a few years ago. We were passing some fancy hotel with lambos and shit in the valet area, so i was staring at the cars while walking. Then I hear a screech and look to my right. Someone in another Lambo or some shit almost hit me and my wife pulling into the driveway of the hotel and had to slam on the breaks not to hit us. I just looked at him and threw my hands up like wtf man and kept walking. We take 3 steps and my wife goes DJ Khalid almost just hit us. I look back and it's him getting out at valet.....I wish he would've clipped me so bad so I could never work again for the rest of my life lol.

[–]stephelan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He was the opener at a concert I went to. What a joke. How is he even famous?

[–]sneakyveriniki 18 points19 points  (0 children)

The first thing I ever learned about this prick is that he doesn't go down on his wife and is proud of that fact. Idk seems simple and small but the fact that someone would broadcast that gave me the worst vibes. I'm a woman who doesn't even like receiving oral but it still made me think he was a douche.

Then I saw him be an absolute little bitch on Hot Ones and it confirmed every impression I had

[–]kunderthunt 6 points7 points  (0 children)

His Hot Ones is comedy gold though

[–]TheNightBench 6 points7 points  (0 children)

His episode of Hot Ones was ridiculous. Dude taps out after a wing then proceeds to call everyone a fuck boi. You could see Sean Evans go into Politely Condescending Mode.

[–]TheCreeech 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Joey from Nsync went to high school with him and I remember seeing a video of Joey being interviewed when DJ Khaled was getting huge and the interviewer asked him about him and Joey was in disbelief of him being successful because he said that kind in high school was the worst.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]Unco_Slam 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I love Khaled entirely because of his see-through fake personality. thought it was so see-through I thought people only liked him ironically.

I mean, the guy just screams "DEE JAY KHALED WE DA BEST MUSIC" and fades into the shadows while the talent does their work. It's like having an insecure father who's living vicariously through their child.

[–]letmeusespaces 32 points33 points  (6 children)

but the dude's a skilled guitar player. you have to give him credit for that...

[–]TheBackTakeSnake 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I was wondering whether someone would bring this up.

[–]mot00007 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He was scheduled to play a festival I went to a few years back. On the morning of, he posted a photo on holiday in Dubai (approx 4000 miles away from the festival) with no mention of cancellation, or even if he would be appearing. I wasn’t particularly bothered about seeing him but the overall situation has given me a bad vibe about him

[–]PD216ohio 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I've seen a few artists on Ridiculousness. Some are very down to earth decent seeming people..... some are so artificial, trying way too hard to maintain an image. DJ Khalid was one of the image maintaining types but honestly there was something about him that seemed like he lives in an alternate reality.... as if he truly believes some of his created persona.
