Real-life Internet troll Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) is at it again. Well known for his questionable antics and unfiltered personality, Deadmau5 is one of the most well-known electronic artists on social media, and most people either love him or despise him.
On December 29th, Deadmau5 was enjoying a meal before his show in Uruguay when he noticed an interesting tweet in his mentions. One of his Uruguayan fans by the name of Sophie took a picture of the DJ at his table with three members of his team. Although she was just trying to express how excited she was to see the star just a couple feet away from her, Joel didn\’t like that too much.
Joel responded by taking a picture of her and her table with the caption “creepy isn’t it.” He then criticized her and complained about the situation in typical Deadmau5 fashion. Love him or hate him, Deadmau5 is one of the most spirited and polarizing figures in electronic music (not EDM – he’s made it clear how much he hates that term). Check out the his response below.
