Round 2 Of Skrillex vs Deadmau5 : Skrillex takes potshots at his former mentor

What happens when you combine a talented producer, a moody troll and social media ?

You get Deadmau5!

Deadmau5 , one of the most outspoken artists on social media , has recently impacted somebody with his words (yet again), but only this time it was old time buddy and disciple Skrillex.

Skrillex first broke his silence back in August on a radio show in response to Deadmau5’s Tweet saying  “Even though I have immense respect for Deadmau5 for helping me start my career , he is an Asshole”.

Deadmau5 also recently expressed his annoyance with Sunburn, and has made it clear that he will not be touring for Sunburn Goa 2015, which has disappointed many Indian fans. He however plans to return to India somewhere at the end of this year through “another promoter”. Now this comes as a shocker because he seemed quite excited after his previous India tour which was organised by Sunburn Festival itself!
