“My desire to start a label was to uplift my community and give opportunities to the next generation,” he continued. “I have fallen very short of that goal.”

Deadmau5 did not specifically address anyone in his tweet, but he was recently criticized for offensive remarks made in one of his gaming videos.

He called one of Slushii’s songs “AIDS music” and “autistic,” leading to a response from Slushii and fellow DJ Marshmello.

“I always looked up to Deadmau5, and I don’t take having a form of autism lightly,” Slushii tweeted. “It’s sad as such an influential member of our community you continue to use your platform to bring others down.”

“I’ve been bullied all my life. Seeing that video upsets me so much because I always looked up to Deadmau5 and I don’t take having a form of autism lightly,” Slushii said. “It’s sad as such an influential member of our community you continue to use your platform to bring others down.”

Deadmau5 has been a part of the electronic scene since 1998.
