Los Angeles, July 15 (IANS) Musician Deadmau5 was infuriated after learning that Grammy Award-winning DJ and music producer David Guetta brought a live horse at one of his shows.
In a series of posts on micro-blogging website Twitter, he accused Guetta of animal cruelty after a video emerged online showing the French DJ playing his set while the horse and some bikini-clad dancers wearing Native American headdresses were surrounded by the crowd, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The video was actually taken a few weeks ago, during the opening party of Guetta’s “F**k Me I’m Famous” residency at Pacha Ibiza.
After watching it for the first time earlier this month, Deadmau5 tweeted: “I’m sure the horse really appreciated it. Stupid f**ks.”
He called Guetta a “s**tty overpaid DJ” while telling him that horse shouldn’t be in clubs.
“For real… horses belong on a farm, not in a s**tty overpriced nightclub to be subjected to a s**tty overpaid DJ,” he added.
Deadmau5 wasn’t the only one who wasn’t happy with Guetta’s horse stunt.
Someone has just started a petition on Care2, a community of 26 million standing together for good, demanding that the “Hey Mama” hitmaker be prohibited from including a live horse in his shows.
The petition has been signed by more than 4,000 supporters.
