Deadmau5 deleted all of his social media last week shortly after his rant about Justin Bieber went public online. "You’re just another number we can all add into our little follower count, that ultimately adds up to NOTHING I require to make music," he wrote, and later tweeted, "peace out. brb. 2017."
