Skrillex Thinks Deadmau5’s “Asshole” Attitude Overshadows His Music

While many people find Deadmau5's a-hole-like tendencies and trollish behaviors to be entertaining, not everyone is laughing. In Skrillex's latest interview with 923 AMP Radio, Skrillex called out Deadmau5 by stating:

“I’ll always have love for Joel because he put me on at an early time, but he’s an asshole. And everyone knows that, and he knows that,” Skrillex said. He went on to say that “And that’s kinda his thing. I mean, the one thing that is unfortunate about it is that he has a Record Label. And when you have a record label, you gotta be a leader. And he has people that are signed to him. And I couldn’t imagine being a leader, you know, going out in the public image being such a negative attitude…I don’t take it personally because I’m secure with myself and what I do, I love what I do. But I almost feel bad that that’s his one way of getting attention rather than going into music and curating. I think his attitude’s changed over the last couple years. I think a lot of people are getting tired with his attitude, calling people out on Twitter. I personally have become less connected to his music because his personality is almost overshadowing that, when he is such an incredible artist.”

Deadmau5 then responded in a Twitter rant that he isn't ashamed of his flaws:
