Earlier this week, whereas enjoying PUBG on a public stream on Twitch, Deadmau5 used the phrase “fag.” The phrase was used as an opponent was utilizing an unfair sport mechanic, and deadmau5 turned annoyed.
“Is that some fucking cock-sucking stream sniper fag,” he says throughout his outburst.
EDM.com wrote an article calling the motion an instance of hate speech and homophobia, whereas Your EDM approached the state of affairs from a unique angle.
Now, plainly deadmau5 has deleted his Twitch channel totally, after having his account suspended by Twitch.
“I’m not going to stand for Twitch’s double standard when it comes to censoring and suspending me for harmless shit. […] While it was intended to insult a fuckin asshat who was being a fucking asshat…. it wasn’t ‘directed at an entire group of people who have a sexual orientation that differs from my own’ fuck off with that shit. I know who I am, and I don’t have to fucking sit here and cry and defend my fucking self with the obligatory ‘IM NOT THAT PERSON, I AM SORRY’ reflex.”
