In an interview with Complex, Skrillex finally cracked on what deadmau5 did to manage to get him angry. It all started with a bunch of finger-pointing between deadmau5 and Marshmello, who many assume to be Dotcom in disguise.
According to Marshmello, he tried to say hi to deadmau5 at Ultra, and deadmau5 just flipped him off. Deadmau5’s version of the story is that Marshmello was taunting him intentionally trying to “get a rise” out of him.
After that, deadmau5 tweeted directly at Marshmello making fun of him.
That was the last straw for Skrillex.
“The only time I really got upset [with deadmau5] was when he started taking stabs at Marshmello, acting like such a f***ing bully,” he said. “Marshmello is this young kid who looks up to deadmau5, and the first tweet he gets from deadmau5 is talking shit about him. That’s when I had to stand up and be like, ‘Stop being a f***ing bully to people.'”Read more to see why Skrillex thinks deadmau5 is a bully:
