After Twitch Ban Over Homophobic Language
2/13/2019 7:09 AM PST
Famed DJ Deadmau5 says he will NOT apologize for using homophobic language while streaming on Twitch — saying the slurs were only “intended to insult a f*ckin asshat who was being a f*cking asshat.”
The man behind the megahit “Ghosts ‘N’ Stuff” got hit with a temporary 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 believes the ban is unfair — and fired off a fiery new statement announcing he will no longer work with Twitch … which is a HUGE deal considering he has 500,000 Twitch followers.
But, the statement is far from an apology … in fact, he DEFENDS the offensive language he used during his live stream and accused Twitch of having a “double standard” when it comes to meting out punishment.
“I’m not going to stand for twitch’s double standard when it comes to censoring and suspending me for harmless sh*t,” the DJ said.
“While we’ve had some fun partnerships here and there, and they were a great company to work with… im gunna have to cut this one short. I dont have the capacity to deal with that kind of sh*t.”
He added, “While what i said was generally toxic as f*ck, and not an ideology i hold closely to my moral standing by a f*ckin longshot.”
“While it was intended to insult a f*ckin asshat who was being a f*cking asshat…. it wasnt ‘directed at an entire group of people who have a sexual orientation that differs from my own’. f*ck off with that sh*t.”
“I know who i am, and i dont have to f*cking sit here and cry and defend my f*cking self with the obligatory ‘IM NOT THAT PERSON, I AM SORRY’ reflex. If im sorry for antying, im sorry that we live in a world where bottom feeding pieces of sh*t can sit there starring at a monitor, watching me play videos games, and just waiting for someone to get tilted so he can get a few fucking clicks. thats what i’m sorry for.”
And, if you think Deadmau5 is bluffing, you’re wrong — he’s already deleted his Twitch channel.
