Deadmau5 Lashes Out at Playboy Bunny Over Insensitive Colorado Shooting Tweet
Whether he's duking it out with Madonna, exchanging angry tweets with Pauly D, or calling out the entire EDM scene in the pages of Rolling Stone, you can always count on Deadmau5 to speak his mind -- and that probably goes double for when a Playboy model cracks an insensitive joke on Twitter just hours after an awful tragedy.
We're referring to the social media brouhaha that erupted after Tricia Evans, whose Twitter bio describes her as an "International Playboy Model, Playboy CYBER GIRL, Actress & Animal Lover," and a "Controversial Tweeter," responded to the news of the slaughter at a midnight screening of 'The Dark Knight Rises' at a Colorado theater by quipping, "I heard the new Batman movie is really 'to die for'! Too soon?"
Most people would agree that yes, it was actually quite a bit too soon -- and Deadmau5 spoke for them in a response to Evans' tweet (which he later deleted), writing, "Good to know. @HollywoodTricia I seriously had no idea how big of a piece of s--t you are. Unfollowed."
This naturally sparked a flood of angry tweets from users who observed the exchange, prompting Evans to call herself a "scapegoat" and claim that her "off color joke" -- which she admits was in "poor taste" -- was "blown hugely out of proportion" by Deadmau5.
She also seems to view herself as the victim here, judging from the remarks she made about the "hate tweets" she's received being "hypocritical & unwarranted." Added Evans, "I still believe that most of u don't give a rat's a-- about your fellow human beings & just want 2 look like the good guy. How r u gonna b a good guy when what u said to me was 100x worse than what I said 2 begin with?!?"
