He also staunchly defended himself from accusations of homophobia, insulting anybody who thinks it's inappropriate to use hate speech while playing videogames, and refusing to apologize.

Following a recent ban on Twitch after Deadmau5 was reprimanded following a homophobic slur aimed at a "stream sniper" during a PUBG match, the DJ-turned-Streamer has issued a response following his removal from the streaming platform.

According to reports, during a PUBG live stream on his Twitch channel, deadmau5 said "Is that some fucking cock-sucking stream sniper fag", in an outburst.

The musician said he has no plans to work with Twitch in any capacity in the future following the incident.

"While it was meant to insult a fuckin asshat who was being a fucking asshat.it wasn't "directed at an entire group of people who have a sexual orientation that differs from my own", the Canadian producer wrote.

"While it was meant to insult a fuckin asshat who was being a fucking asshat....it wasn't "directed at an entire group of people who have a sexual orientation that differs from my own" fuck off with that shit", he wrote. "I know who I am, and I don't have to fucking sit here and cry and defend my fuckingself with the obligatory "IM NOT THAT PERSON, I AM SORRY" reflex". In that same week, the producer used the phrase "autistic shit" to describe American producer Julian "Slushii" Scanlan's music, a day after World Mental Health Day and even though Scanlan has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.

He also was accused of using transphobic language after saying "women don't possess penises" in a trolling spat on Twitter. If you'd like to read the now-deleted Reddit post by Deadmau5, who was born a few months before the very first Space Shuttle mission, you can find a screencap in this tweet from Rod "Slasher" Breslau. I'm "gunna" have to cut this one short.

His social media has since been handled by his management.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Deadmau5's rep for comment.
