If you want to put an end to your career in high profile fashion - even if most people don't actually know who you are - then you'd be wise to follow the lead of Marijus Adomaitis, the Lithuanian producer better known as Ten Walls. In a recent Facebook post, he wrote that homosexuals were of a "different breed" and needed to be "fixed." He then went on to compare them to paedophiles, beacuse once the knife's in, you may as well wiggle it about a bit.
As a result, his slots have been dropped from Creamfields, PITCH and Sonar festivals. According to FACT, he's also been booted from his booking agency. He posted this on Facebook earlier today:
Although he's clearly a moronic piece of shit with terrible views on everything, I almost (almost) feel bad for the guy. The common refrain on Twitter goes as follows:
I'll confess, I hadn't heard of Ten Walls either. He has about 80K Likes on Facebook, which is even less than Don't Panic (gross!), and is only really a household name if your house is Resident Advisor. A few years ago, a comment like this would have disappointed his fans and put a halt to much of his income. He'd have disappeared in disgrace, but a relatively quiet form of it.
Nowadays, every tosser is turning up at the guillotine even if they've no idea of the person in the blocks. They just want to kick the head around once it's been lopped off and tossed to the ground. Watching folks say "good riddance" to a DJ they hadn't heard of three minutes ago is a uniquely depressing thing, especially when agencies, labels and festivals have already parted ties with him. So let's stop shaming Ten Walls. He's already fucked.
YEAH I SPOTTED THE IRONY OF WRITING A POST LIKE THIS. NOT SORRY.
