EDM megastar Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, has introduced he’s going to now not use Twitch, after he was once suspended from the platform for the use of a homophobic slur all through a PUBG fit.
All over that PUBG fit, Deadmau5 reportedly accused a participant of circulation sniping, including that they have been a “fucking cock-sucking circulation sniper f**”. In a while after the Twitch suspension Deadmau5 took to his subreddit the place he posted a now-deleted screed. Throughout the very long diatribe, Deadmau5 seems to rule out any longer dealings with Twitch.
“i knew it was once a a laugh position to attach and fuck round… however im now not going to face for twitch’s double usual on the subject of censoring and postponing me for risk free shit. Whilst we’ve had some a laugh partnerships right here and there, they usually have been an ideal corporate to paintings with… im gunna have to chop this one brief. I dont have the capability to take care of that more or less shit.”
He persevered later, within the very long reddit submit: “whilst it was once meant to insult a fuckin asshat who was once being a fucking asshat…. it wasn’t “directed at a whole workforce of people that have a sexual orientation that differs from my very own” fuck off with that shit. i do know who i’m, and that i dont need to fucking take a seat right here and cry and shield my fuckingself with the necessary “IM NOT THAT PERSON, I AM SORRY” reflex. If im sorry for antying, im sorry that we are living in an international the place backside feeding items of shit can take a seat there starring at a observe, looking at me play movies video games, and simply looking forward to somebody to get tilted so he can get a couple of fucking clicks. thats what i’m sorry for.”
That message is now deleted, so who is aware of: perhaps Deadmau5 has already reconsidered. Again in July, PUBG presented a limited-time Deadmau5 crossover crate, which featured in-game clothes emblazoned with the Deadmau5 logo.
