Information is still developing, but initial details suggest that Mayor Ford and Deadmau5 were attacked by a group of enraged #TeamTiesto fans at a local Toronto Tim Horton’s. Supposedly a verbal altercation took place, with insults exchanged over the mau5keteer’s Ultra Music Festival closing set. Shortly thereafter, blows were exchanged. A spokesperson for Deadmau5 has stated that both Rob Ford and Deadmau5’s injuries were serious, including lacerations and second degree burns, but are not life threatening. However, the spokesperson added that doctors are worried that Deadmua5’s ego, which was severly broken in the attack, may never recover.
The assailants fled the scene and Toronto PD has asked that anyone with information about the assault step forward.
