Deadmau5 issued an update to his fans on Twitter this morning, informing them that he will be performing his upcoming shows in Europe after his sudden hiatus.

To recap, the DJ had several public outbursts on Twitter and on streams, causing him to seek mental health treatment. The first was when he tweeted a series of homophobic and transphobic statements in an argument with another Twitter user. The backlash caused deadmau5 to delete the tweets, and issue an apology to his fans. His apology states that the internet “took it somewhere unintended.”

 

 

Then, just a few days later, deadmau5 was hosting a gaming stream when a Slushii song came on. He called the song “AIDS music” and “autistic shit” live on the stream. Later, Slushii responded saying that he is actually on the autistic spectrum.

 

Shortly after being called out for his damaging language, deadmau5 issued a statement letting fans know that he was seeking treatment for mental health issues. He has been on hiatus since then; it’s been about a month since we last heard an update.

To the relief of his long-time fans, the update from deadmau5 seems mostly positive. His European fans are especially thrilled with his response, since he confirmed that he will be performing his upcoming European shows as scheduled.
