Deadmau5 Has Been Suspended From Twitch For Using A Homophobic Slur

  • Deadmau5 was banned from Twitch for using the F-word

Naff Daft Punk wannabe and multi-award-winning electronic musician Deadmau5 has been been banned by streaming site Twitch for using a homophobic slur during a public livestream. The word was used as an opponent was using an unfair game mechanic, and deadmau5 became frustrated.

The frustration of that - which most gamers treat as akin to cheating - eventually mounted, and deleted Twitch clips recorded Deadmau5 saying "is that some fucking cock-sucking stream sniper f**", as reported by EDM.

Deadmau5 is best known for his work as a DJ.

Since popular streamer, PewDiePie, called someone the N-word on a stream, Twitch has adopted a zero-tolerance policy towards such behaviour, meaning those caught are generally banned or suspended immediately.

Stream snipers are players that watch a streamer and attempt to get into a game with them.

"While it was meant to insult a fuckin asshat who was being a fucking asshat.it wasn't "directed at an entire group of people who have a sexual orientation that differs from my own", he wrote. Fuck off with that shit.

Deadmau5, who's famous for performing in an oversized mouse mask, and who is old enough to have adult children if he had started a family when he turned 20, apparently believes Twitch's decision to punish a user for violating its terms of service to be a form of censorship. The middle-aged man took to Reddit to complain about what he considers to be Twitch's "double standard when it comes to censoring and suspending me for harmless shit", and announced that he would no longer partner with the company. I'm "gunna" have to cut this one short.

'Now it's time for me to deal with my own personal issues including finally addressing my own mental health challenges that I have wrestled with for the past several years.

Breslau, a veteran of the esports and gaming industry, stated: "Should deadmau5 be calling people f*gs in games? No".

This led Twitch to ban Deadmau5 for an unknown period of time-and he is clearly unhappy about it.
