Uproar after deadmau5 says he'll only tour blue states

Before election night, a slew of celebrities threatened to move to Canada if Donald Trump won the US presidency. Snoop Dogg even asked Drake for help finding a place to stay in Toronto.

deadmau5, from the Toronto-area, however, took a different approach. When the election results were rolling in, the Canadian EDM artist tweeted out his new tour schedule - it was a map showing only blue states. The tweet looks like it's since been deleted.

Not everyone was pleased with deadmau5's little joke, especially those in Arizona where he's supposed to play Decadence NYE. And the mau5 had to clarity, saying he would indeed play his brand of party music in both red and blue states.
