Deadmau5 has had to come out and apologise after a heated message exchange on Twitter lead to him saying some slightly transphobic comments.

The now deleted exchange goes as is:

Many have accused Deadmau5's comments of being homphobic/transphobic. Although they don't really single out a particular group, the comments are still pretty rough.

Deadmau5 has now released an apology saying,

I wasn't trying to make blatant transphobic statements,  just got into a heated arguement with some dude online...

Think the Internet overreacted or that he was pretty out of line?

Either way, at least he's apologised.
