The Niagra Falls Review reports that Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, got passed over for the Niagara Falls Arts & Culture Wall of Fame this year, beat out by the Landscape Architecture of Oakes Garden Theatre.
“I got my ass kicked by a bunch of fucking plants?” responded Zimmerman.
City Councillor Janice Wing says she was “outraged” to learn that Deadmau5 could be overlooked for the Wall of Fame not once, but twice. She’s questioning whether the process to get on the Wall of Fame is “fair and unbiased.
“If this isn’t bias, I don’t know what it is,” she says. “Other than sheer ignorance, perhaps.”
This year’s inductees are Diana Coatsworth, Honeymoon Suite, Bob McAdorey, Brian Smylski, Frank Shuster and the landscape architecture of Oakes Garden Theatre.
