Here is Zedd’s reply to these posts.
Although some fans have been hopeful that this tiff can be resolved, it appears that the damage has already been done.
Many people have come forward to openly support Matthew Koma, particularly other artists. This conflict has undoubtedly opened up the door for further discussion on how artists should value and mutually respect one another.
One of the most powerful statements that Koma made in his post was:
“BUT I WOULD RATHER WORK AT STARBUCKS AND CLEAN THE TOILETS THAN EVER EXPERIENCE THAT ABUSIVE DYNAMIC AGAIN. TOXICITY DOESN’T BREED HAPPINESS.”
Moral of the story? Be kind to one another, give respect and, quite simply, be a good person. Stay tuned for further updates on this matter.
