[Update 2/16/2019:] Deadmau5 has walked back his comments and has apologized to Social Justice Warriors for saying mean things on Twitch. He also states that he will take a sabbatical from social media until he can learn to be “a better person”.
[Original article:] Dubstep artist Deadmau5 oftentimes hangs out on Twitch playing video games. Sometimes he gets a little rowdy and throws down some manly verses, insults, and ridicule against people when they egg him on. Well, in his latest one-off tirade against someone, he used what some sites are calling “homophobic” language that Twitch didn’t like and they temporarily banned him. Instead of groveling at the golden-plated boots of the white knights working for the Intersectional Inquisition, Deadmau5 practically told Twitch to get bent and said that he wasn’t going to deal with them anymore due to their double-standards on censorship.
Over on the official Deadmau5 sub-reddit, the artist himself hopped in to explain why his Twitch channel was gone. On February 13th, 2019 he wrote…
“yeah, sorry about that guys…. i knew it was a fun place to connect and fuck around… but im [sic] not going to stand for twitch’s double standard when it comes to censoring and suspending me for harmless shit. 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 shit.
“whatever dude. the internet is just basically full of shit for the most part…. and while what i said was generally toxic as fuck, and not an ideology i hold closely to my moral standing by a fuckin longshot…. it was just some bottom feeding piece of shit from colorodo who decided to make it news… proving once again, the online clickbaity world is a piece of fucking shit on a good day.
“while it was intended to insult a fuckin asshat who was being a fucking asshat…. it wasnt “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 dont have to fucking sit here and cry and defend my fuckingself 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 shit 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.
“the sane people who knew what it was in the heat of the moment knew the purpose of the statement, and the people that think otherwise, Im better off not even fucking knowing and they can just keep way the fuck clear of me.”
Deadmau5 was greeted with a lot of positive feedback from his fans for not apologizing to Twitch or groveling to be taken back by the streaming outlet.
Most people who get banned from Twitch go through the whole dog and pony show of promising to never be “toxic” again and adhering to the Social Justice Warrior standards of political correctness, which is becoming increasingly impossible to maintain. However, certain people like Bunty King and Chris Raygun have been desperately trying to stay on the good side of SJWs by being good little Centrists™ who seem to spend more time condemning anti-SJWs than they do the people who are de-platforming, demonetizing, censoring, and banning people both online and offline.
Thankfully, there are people like Deadmau5 who just don’t give a [fill in the blank].
In today’s overly politically correct atmosphere, it’s nice to see that some people are standing up to Twitch, especially since the company has joined companies like Blizzard in banning people for off-site behavior. It ties into Twitch’s recent “diversity & inclusion” initiative, where they are promoting more “diversity” within the community and attempting to snuff out any forms of “toxicity”.
Hopefully Deadmau5 will make a return to streaming on Bitchute or Stream.me or any other site that isn’t Twitch or YouTube. Alternative platforms desperately need more anti-SJWs supporting their efforts.
