Tricia Evans, a former Playboy model and centerfold, made a much too soon joke on Friday in the aftermath of the Colorado shooting at the Batman premiere, prompting Deadmau5 to lambast the buxom blonde for her inappropriate joke.
The feud began on Friday when Evans tweeted about the shooting which claimed a dozen lives and many wounded when James Holmes open fired on the Century 16 theater in Aurora, Colorado screening a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises.
I heard the new Batman movie is really 'to die for'! Evans tweeted. Too soon?
That's when Canadian-born Joel Zimmerman of Deadmau5 stepped in.
good to know @HollywoodTricia i seriously had no idea how big of a shit you are. Unfollowed, he wrote on Twitter in a post which has since been deleted.
Evans, who frequently tweets on controversial matters, fired back.
Listen, apparently I have a different opinion than u. That doesn't make me a piece of shit, Evans wrote to deadmau5.
@HollywoodTricia so your opinion of the tragedy in Colorado is... humor? not sure how that's convoluted into an opinion, deadmau5 wrote back.
Evans went on to defend herself countless times, posting various messages on Twitter to her 3,000+ followers.
Most of the people I've heard from r walking, talking bags of shit & deadmau5 is the moral police. LOL.
But not everyone was quick to attack Evans for her humor.
it sure is cool how all you tough smart men are attacking @hollywoodtricia for daring to be a female model with an opinion, wrote Twitter user @hugbox, which was retweeted by Evans later.
Zimmerman of Deadmau5 eventually gave up lambasting Evans and instead sent his condolences to those who lost lives at the shooting.
my thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families in Colorado during this most troublesome time. : such senselessness.
But this is certainly not Zimmerman's first Twitter feud either. Earlier this year, Deadmau5 called out Madonna for referencing a drug during her tour. Madge reported said, How many people in this crowd have seen Molly? at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami in March. Deadmau5 fired back calling the Queen of Pop a f----ing IDIOT, adding, That's your big message to ultra attendies? hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? F--- off.
