After Extreme Racism, Legendary DJ Offers Half-Assed Apology
UK drum and bass producer Mistabishi from peers and fans earlier this week when he made multiple racist remarks regarding fellow London citizens as well as Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan. As a result his actions, his entire catalog from legendary label Hospital Records was scrubbed, and all prits made from his music on the label were donated to an anti-hate charity.
Later Monday, Mistabishi posted an apology on his Facebook – or, at least, what he thought was an apology. When you start your apology with “I shouldn’t have to apologize” you’re not f to a good start. He blamed part his agitation and opinions on PTSD “from various things …] I’ve seen here over the years.” However, people weren’t having any it.
He followed up the next morning with a more subdued response, starting with, “Thank you all for making me see how far from the path balance I strayed.” A better start than his previous “apology” to be certain.
He then fered one last statement yesterday morning, brushing f any claims that his career was now over, calling it a hobby his from the beginning. He resents being called a Nazi, saying it was the “only that that got to me.”
Whatever does come Mistabishi’s words, it’s clear that he will have no new fans for years to come.
