Deadmau5 was so pissed that Madonna made comments about drug use to her young fans at a recent concert that he slammed the pop queen on Facebook, his blog and Twitter. Madonna was at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami this past weekend and shouted to the crowd: “How many people in this crowd have seen molly?”

If you don’t know, molly is slang for MDMA, one of the key ingredients in ecstasy and also similar to the name of Madonna’s newest album (MDNA). It’s a popular drug with the progressive house music community.

While tons of her fans cheered, Deadmau5 was clearly not impressed as he took to Facebook and Twitter and wrote:

“Very classy there madonna. ‘HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???’ such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra.”

He added, “Quite the f’n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f*cking cant smack my head hard enough right now.”

However, a lot of people thought his comments were hypocritical considering a lot of Deadmau5′ own fas are hopped up at his concerts. Still, he assured commenters on Twitter that he doesn’t condone or promote drug use like Madonna did:

I have to agree with Deadmau5. Madonna is a role model for tons of young people, so why would she seemingly encourage it? There are too many celebrities who create a poor image just to make a quick buck.

Deadmau5 also took to his blog and clarified why he was upset at the reference. He said everyone can make their own personal decisions when it comes to drug use but that “BIG voices” shouldn’t appeal to today’s young crowd by condoning drugs and should be more responsible for the image they promote.

As he says on his blog: ”Now, weve taken EDM so far in the past decade, so goddamned far. It really hurts me to see rampant ADVOCATION of extreme bullshit lifestyles to a genre that spans pretty much any age gap these days.  Of course, ill always have my opinions about this or that… and yeah, its my personal choice not to do drugs, but im not on a fucking crusade to stamp out other peoples personal choices by no means. fuck being a crusader. Im not pro, or anti drug… but… ill easily let you know that im pro-responsibility.”

What do you think? Was it an inappropriate comment for Madonna to make?
