    The mau5 is sympathetic to traumatic events, unlike some people, apparently.

    Electronic dance music star Deadmau5 took to Twitter to slam International Playboy model Tricia Evans after she wrote an insensitive tweet regarding the Colorado shooting during a Dark Knight Rises midnight showing.

    Evans wrote on Friday, "I heard the new Batman movie is really 'to die for'! Too soon?"

    (Warning: The images of tweets below contain strong language.)

    In response to that tweet, Deadmau5 posted (which has since been deleted), "good to know. @HollywoodTricia i seriously had no idea how big of a piece of s--t you are. unfollowed," and then shared his condolences.

    "my thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families in Colorado during this most troublesome time. :\ such senselessness," Deadmau5 tweeted.

    Evans followed up to her initial comment by saying, "Everyone loves a scapegoat. My tweet was blown hugely out of proportion because it got the attention & was RTed by a celebrity. I admit, it was an off color joke & I apologize 2 anyone it may have hurt.

    "But the hate tweets I have received r hypocritical & unwarranted I still believe that most of u don't give a rat's ass about your fellow human beings & just want 2 look like the good guy. How r u gonna b a good guy when what u said to me was 100x worse than what I said 2 begin with?!? 

    "I never wished death on anyone! I never said anyone deserved 2 die! What I said was in poor taste, but it was not malicious."

    Meanwhile, Playboy tweeted, "The views expressed by @HollywoodTricia do not reflect those of @Playboy. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families."
