The US Killed Net Neutrality. Now the Commissioner is Being Targeted by a DJ

If you’ve been following the ridiculous repeal of net neutrality in the US (something that’s not even on the radar in Canada for a variety of reasons, thank God), you’ll know that three people voting along Republican party lines, went against the wishes of more than 80% of Americans and sided with big ISPs.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai tried to calm the fears of Internet users everywhere by appearing in a video explaining how the rollback of the Obama-era net neutrality rules is nothing to fear.

This video explains what’s going on and what’s at stake.

Baauer, the guy behind “The Harlem Shake,” isn’t happy with the unauthorized use of his song. He’s looking at taking action.

Good Jeezbus, America…
