Deadmau5 is softening his stance on not issuing an apology for using homophobic language while streaming on Twitch … admitting his original statement was “an insult to injury.”

ICYMI — the DJ and producer got hit with a suspension from the video game streaming site after reportedly referring to a troll as a “f*cking c**k-sucking stream sniper f*g” while playing PUBG. 

Deadmau5 didn’t help his cause after the incident … refusing to apologize and saying his words were “intended to insult a f*ckin asshat who was being a f*cking asshat.”

The 38-year-old says he’s had time to cool down … and now understands the backlash.

“I know what I said was wrong, and my hastily composed non-apology was an insult to injury,” Deadmau5 says.

“I realize that trying to somewhat dismiss it as ‘gamer culture’ was even worse. I don’t know why I did that. But I do know it was stupid and insensitive and I feel even more ashamed. This was my worst moment.”
