    South Korean DJ and producer Peggy Gou expressed her anger at people who leave their trash on a beach in Bali, Indonesia in an Instagram video on January 2.

    The 28-year-old Berlin-based house and techno DJ, who performed on New Year’s Eve at Desa Potato Head, went out for a walk on one of Bali’s beaches during her stay in the country, according to her Instagram post.

    However, Gou became furious after she saw all the trash left there by the visitors.

    “Some of you motherf***ers don’t appreciate the ocean man,” Gou said in the video as she collected some of the garbage she found on the beach. “Seriously, take your f***ing garbage.”

    The DJ did not disclose the name of the beach, but she geotagged Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia in her post.

    Gou, who is regarded as one of the hippest DJs in the world, has over a million followers on Instagram, a Virgil Abloh-supported fashion label and an independent record label, according to Coconuts Bali.

    Gou has performed at many international music gatherings such as Coachella and Glastonbury, since her debut at Boiler Room in New York City.

    The artist sings in her native Korean language in hits like “It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)” and “Starry Night,” and she refers to her music as “K-House.”
