Skrillex and Deadmau5 continue to beef, and have taken their feud to Twitter, where Skrillex went on a total rant about his former tour mate, calling him ‘sad’ and ‘washed up.’ Yikes! See the tweets!
Skrillex, 27, completely lost it on Twitter on Nov. 1, writing tweet after tweet slamming Deadmau5, 34. The two EDM artists, who have previously toured together, have been beefing since August when Deadmau5 slammed Skrillex’s song with Justin Bieber, “Where Are U Now,” and it seems that Skrillex is still not over it, hence his social media smackdown. You need to read these crazy tweets!
There’s no saying exactly what caused Skrillex to go off, but boy did he ever. “.@deadmau5 I dont care bout ur personal career but the fact that u own ur own record label is sad.I feel sorry the artists you’ve signed,” Skrillex wrote in the first of several tweets (putting a period before Deadmau5’s handle so it could be visible by all who follow Skrillex).
Skrillex dropped a couple more tweet bombs, saying that Deadmau5 was “shriveling,” amongst other insults, and it didn’t take long for Deadmau5 to respond. “@Skrillex the fact that I own a record label is sad? OK. It’s a sad label. Let’s have a cry. I don’t tell my artists what to do. Clearly,” he wrote.
Less than ten minutes later, Skrillex responded to, uh, clarify his comments. “. @deadmau5 no it’s sad the people on your label have the worst label head ever aka you bro,” he said.
Finally, Deadmau5 tweeted (not at Skrillex), “Can I go to bed now?” to which Skrillex responded with a selfie and one final diss. “.@deadmau5 yes good night you sad old washed up a–hole. Here’s my Halloween costume bye :)” See the tweets below!
So much for these two playing nice. Who are you siding with here, Team Skrillex or Team Deadmau5?
