The Skrillex and Deadmau5 Twitter Beef Finally Happened

Skrillex and deadmau5 are friends, right?  It would’ve seemed so – at least, until yesterday, when Sonny took to Twitter to air some complaints he had about Joel’s handling of his record label, Mau5trap (that’s “Mousetrap” for those of you who don’t speak 1337).

WOAH!  Them’s some fightin’ words for the friendly, neighborhood DJ, Skrillex.  Still, he continues to go in:

Now, there’s that friendly guy we all know love.  But suddenly, a wild MAU5 appears!

Great!  Here we get an inside glimpse into the life of being a huge (albeit lonely) celebrity!  That last tweet perfectly illustrates the kind of artist who has come to value money more than the music they create.  Oh, but wait, the fight’s not over; shit’s about to get REAL:

I think we all know who deadmau5 is talking about here.  At this point, the cow is cooked, and what we’ve got on our hands is full-on, 100% Grade A beef.  

(Un)fortunately, it doesn’t last long.  That’s what happens when you leave the beef (drama) in the oven (Twitter) for too long: it burns.  The two seem to let the water pass under the bridge before Skrillex gets the last inspirational word in.

To be completely honest here, did the outcome of this DJ battle really surprise anyone?  Deadmau5 is a guy who is who feeds on negativity from the internet, and enjoys being a troll.  Skrillex may have been a little. . . forward with his means of aggression, but c’mon, he was standing up for the little guys at Mau5trap.

Besides, this fight was a long time coming, and it feels good to see Skrillex essentially stand up to his own cyber-bully.  Joel is a self-appointed police officer in the world of EDM, and he’s traded blows with other DJ’s before – but he almost never comes out looking like a winner, even if he does prove his point.  Deadmau5 is the last electronic artist I would ever want to hang out with – and I’m well aware that some of them don’t even speak.

So the Twitter beef was flash-fried, and as a result, tasted like greasy fast food: tasty, quick and cheap.  For now, the dust seems to have settled.  Readers, get out of your dark bedrooms and go enjoy the company of friends!  And if you do happen to take offense to any of their behavior, don’t subtweet them like a bitch.  Tag them in your tweets just like Skrillex, so you’ll know they’ll see it!  And last, but certainly not least, don’t be deadmau5, treat what few friends you have left with love and respect.
