It’s hate speech. It’s not “stepping out of line”. The point is that people SHOULD be upset about it, and they justifiably are.


If he knew the guy was homosexual and called him that to attack him based on sexual preference then I would agree with you. I think his intent was to attack him based on him stream sniping and he made a poor choice of words. The Twitch ban seems like a severe enough slap on the wrist given the offense. I don’t think he was seeking out to offend a group of people or individual based on sexual preference but I wasn’t there, maybe I’m wrong. I just read articles after Wombat talked about it on the CAGcast.

If he went on a rant about hating a certain group of people then the twitter/social media mob is justified.

It looks like he did have an incident in the past where he made fun of a rival DJ based on a disability but he didn’t know the DJ actually had the disability and once he found out he made an apology. I can find the article if anyone cares.

Business insider said

“During his evening stream of "Playerunknown's Battlegrounds" on February 10th, deadmau5 launched into a diatribe against a player who had killed him, calling him a "f****** c***-s**** stream sniper f**." As clips of the outburst began to circulate, Twitch responded by suspending deadmau5's account for hate speech.”

...

“"It wasn't 'directed at an entire group of people who have a sexual orientation that differs from my own,' f*** off with that s***," he allegedly wrote on the r/LivestreamFail subreddit.”

Obviously in America he has the right to say that and since he was streaming in Twitch, they have the right to have Terms of Service. I don’t know what there Terms say but if he broke the terms by saying that then they can obviously ban him. He has the right as a performer to choose to never do business with them again.

As someone who was in middle and high school in the 90’s and early 2000’s I can’t say I find his original expletive shocking, it was a pretty common term during that time to hear at school. I also understand and I’m sure I’ve taken part of the internet pile on mentality when someone puts a foot out of line with what an online group thinks is appropriate. If this happened and social media didn’t exist to spread it around would anyone have cared? Probably not, but here we are in 2019 where we need something to be upset about. If he stops commenting about it I’m sure most people will have forgotten about it by next week when they are piling on some other celeb or streamer for stepping out of line.

Where do you guys get the lists of video game releases each week for the various consoles (like for Switch game or not)? When I search the internet I end up with inaccurate lists.
