Deadmau5 Threatens to Sue Krewella Over New Music Video

It’s been awhile since any drama involving deadmau5 has come about. Fortunately for us drama seekers, the wait is now over- it was well worth the wait. The Canadian producer and Krewella are going head to head once again. As we all know, deadmau5 and Krewella don’t see eye to eye about the industry they work in. Remember back in 2015 when deadmau5 called out the duo for their Ultra set?

This time, however, it’s about Krewella’s new music video, “Bitch of the Year“. Honestly, the song sounds like typical Krewella, but the video is actually empowering. In the background of the video, they have rapid fire images of men accused of misogyny and/or sexual harassment while they go in calling for female empowerment. Featured in the video are the likes of disgraced film producer and sexual predator, Harvey Weinstein, as well as Donald Trump, who is wading an NDA-based lawsuit with a former porn star.

In the original, images of deadmau5 appeared on screen next to the other individuals mentioned above. Apparently, there was some legal action threatened, and therefore, the original video was pulled. The new re-upload is about the same, but does not feature the iconic mau5 head as it once did.

The new “Bitch of the Year” video even comes a disclaimer: “Someone threatened to sue us for using their image in this video,” Krewella states. “Here is a new version without them.”

As usual, and rightfully so, deadmau5 did not hold back his thoughts and feelings on the matter.
