Skrillex tore into Deadmau5’s “hateful shit” on Twitter

Twitter fights between DJs are a lot like Halloween candy: insubstantial and bad for your health, but you just can’t stay away from them.

Just in time for Halloween, then, former buddies and producer megastars Deadmau5 and Skrillex have reprised their beef from earlier this year, with Skrillex taking a break from non-stop positivity to jump on Twitter and call out the Canadian producer for his “hateful shit”.

It all started, as these things tend to, with Deadmau5 throwing around snark on social media. A bit of banter with fans about whether or not Deadmau5 wants a “squad” devolved into the Canadian producer tweeting, “Yeah. My dreams and goals consist of rolling around on iohawks making dubstep with biebs all fuckin day. Nailed it.”

This time around, though, Sonny ‘Skrillex’ Moore wasn’t standing for any more smartarse comments from the ‘mau5. Moore took to Twitter to personally call out his former Mau5trap label-boss, tweeting that he “never responds to his [Deadmau5’s] shit” but that this time, he’s hitting back because “I want you all to know I’ve never bitched out”.

“I don’t care ‘bout ur personal career but the fact that u own ur own record label is sad,” Moore tweeted. “I feel sorry for the artists you’ve signed… You’re great at finding talented people but ur leadership skills are atrocious. I’m sure you don’t care tho…

“I’m forever grateful for the mau5’s early support but the reality is sad. He’s shrivelling in his own pile of hateful shit.”

Deadmau5 fired back a handful of Twitter barbs, and made to sign off with the self-aware observation that “EDM blogs are ‘bout to have some sorta field day,” but this time around Moore had the last word, tweeting, “you can ignore bullying but at some point you have to stand up for yourself and your friends”.

Follow the whole exchange below; with his mind now spoken, Skrillex is heading to a rave in the Dead Sea later this week before four days on the Mad Decent Boat Party, while Deadmau5 is headed back to his gothic mansion in the Canadian countryside to break in his brand new studio.

I want to be in @deadmau5‘s squad.
