DJ deadmau5 Suspended From Twitch

DJ deadmau5, known as Dead Mouse, was suspended from Twitch, a popular video game streaming platform, for using homophobic slurs on February 10. After being killed by a player on his stream of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), deadmau5 launched into outrage and clips of his outburst circulated.

The artist, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, made a Reddit post response on February 12, which has since been deleted. Zimmerman accused Twitch of censorship and holding a double standard.

Interestingly, this is not the first offense. Zimmerman took a hiatus from Twitter last October after insulting a Twitter user with homophobic and transphobic comments. He later apologized.
