Kanye calls out Deadmau5 in bizarre rant after torrenting claim

Are you a man, or a mouse?

That's what Kanye West must have been saying to himself in the mirror yesterday after being called out by electronic artist Deadmau5 for seemingly using the torrenting site Pirate Bay to obtain a copy of synthesizer software Serum.

Well obviously Kanye wasn't going to take that lying down, so he responded with a series of bizarre tweets at his fellow Tidal supporter yesterday evening, constantly referring to his trademark mouse head that the artist - real name Joel Zimmerman - uses on stage.

Naturally, Deadmau5, known for his brutally honest tweeting about music and life in general, wasn't going to take this lying down.

He had support from his fans too:

And then he got back to making music. Which is probably what Kanye should be doing too (without the aid of pirated software (allegedly)).

Oh Kanye, we used to be such good friends didn't we?
