Last year Lithuanian producer Ten Walls (AKA Marijus Adomaitismade some homophobic remarks on his Facebook account. As expected, his comments made quite a stir in the LBGT community as well as in the music industry. After such times and trying to make a comeback, Ten Wall was recently booked to play at Circoloco (DC10) this coming Monday.
A few days later things have changed. The club posted on their Facebook account that “Ten Walls will no longer be playing at Circoloco next Monday. Circoloco and DC10 Ibiza exist due to values of equality and freedom and we deeply regret any offense caused by this booking.”
Other artists such as Seth Troxler whio will be playing on that day posted his thoughts on Twitter: “In a time where homophobia, racism and fascism are on the rise we must stand strong to support each other and what we believe in #nohatehere”
We will wait and see if there’s any response from Ten Walls…
Here’s Ten Walls response:
“First of all I would like to say thanks to Circoloco for the invitation. However, my performance was canceled, as a number of DJ’s refused to play on the same stage with me. I do understand the pressure Circoloco has experienced and support their decision. Disappointments and anger won’t find place in my life. I will never give up creating and performing my music, that has been everything to me, since I was 5 years old. Keep it up and see you all equalized in upcoming gigs. Peace / TW”
