So, what WILL the promoter who told Scott Diaz he was too fat make of him now – and the even bigger question: will they have the barefaced cheek to approach him again?

When this blog said it would deal with the weighty issues of the day, this is certainly not what I had in mind. A photograph of UK house and garage don Scott Diaz has been doing the rounds on social media this weekend. Taken last Friday and captioned “nice little party to start the weekend”, it was taken in a back garden on one of the hottest weekends that Britain has had for a long time…

A few people commented that Diaz has lost weight. Now, this blog typically doesn’t comment on whether someone’s looking a bit thin, or has been eating a bit too much during lockdown and such. Mostly because I don’t care. But there’s a reason why I mention this particular case.

Back in 2018, Diaz posted details about how a gig had been cancelled because his “image doesn’t fit”. The promoter explained “We have a certain crowd here at ********** and we feel the people attending our parties expect a certain image from both the acts we book and the other clubbers. It seems like Scott’s a bit overweight and just overall doesn’t really fit our Ibiza image or ethos.”.

At the time, Diaz declined to reveal who the promoter was, citing advice received from “legal, PR and friends”. Well, I can’t help but wonder whether the aforementioned promoter will soon have the barefaced cheek to go back to Diaz to try and arrange another booking. Feel free to tell him or her to Foxtrot Oscar if they do, Scott…
