Just when you thought the whole Deadmau5 controversy regarding his comment to Rolling Stone regarding David Guetta and Skrillex was dying down, think again. UK dance pioneer A Guy Called Gerald published an open letter to the Canadian EDM icon on his blog. Needless to say, the letter was pretty scathing.
Though Deadmau5 clarified his statements, that didn’t stop Gerald. He said: “I know who you are. You are some record company or failed journalist asshole left over from the last century who is jealous of the way electronic music is working in this brave fast new century. The only button you and people like you are interested in pushing is a nuke for the Palestinians. You come into our system that we have nurtured for the last 25 years, trick hardworking people into giving you their money, con honest promoters, take large sums of money out of the system and then spit back into our faces that YOU are tricking everyone.
“I agree there are loads of people like you who do fake it. It is easy with the software you are using. Don’t worry we are going to find ways of stopping you. You greedy rat head fuck.”
To which Deadmau5 responded through his Tumblr, “i dont give a fuck. esp with the anti-sematic statement about ‘nuking palestine’ ??? what an ignorant fuck. im not going to even give him the time of day. waste of time. let him go back to being no longer relevant.”
