Drum ‘n’ bass artist Mistabishi found making racist comments : Dancing Astronaut

English drum ‘n’ bass producer Mistabishi has sparked controversy after recently voicing a series of racist comments on Facebook and Twitter. Mistabishi first targeted London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, after Khan expressed pleasure once Donald Trump’s visit to London was cancelled.

“Khan is from a migrant family,” the artist wrote, “He’s not English and London is not his capital city. He is a Muslim and his capital is Mecca.” Mistabishi meanwhile asserted his status as a “real Londoner,” remarking that his family “can be traced back over a thousand years.”

Mistabishi’s response to the Mayor elicited retaliation from a Facebook user who wrote “Britain doesn’t want you, either” on the producer’s page. Mistabishi fired back “Feel free to beat your child cousin bride and throw gay people off buildings because ‘it’s your culture,’ Muzzy.”

UK artist, Chimpo screenshotted and tweeted the Facebook thread containing the comments, captioning the photo “Wow Mistabishi! How u gonna hate immigrants and make d’n’b and techno? Racists aren’t welcome here mate.”

Mistabishi extended his deragatoy comments to Twitter, where he called a Twitter user a chimp, informing the tweeter that he didn’t “want a braindead semi-literate dj chimp” playing his music.

While Mistabishi has since deleted the defamatory Facebook remarks, a post that the producer published on a forum in August has surfaced.

The image of the summer forum post shows the artist state that black culture is “destructive to social integration.” Mistabishi uses several racial slurs to articulate his point therein.
