Canadian DJ Deadmau5 has been forced to apologise after being accused of homophobia and voicing a string of offensive slurs about autism. The artist, real name Joel Zimmerman, described a track by DJ Slushii as “Aids f****** music” and “autistic s***” during a video stream. Slushii, real name Julian Scanlan, addressed the remarks on Twitter, revealing he is on the autistic spectrum. “As someone who’s actually on the autism spectrum, this is really disappointing,” he wrote.
