Boiler Room has had enough with the sexist comments

Last night during Nightwaves set at Boiler Room x Dailymotion in Paris a bunch of pathetic guys went tuff on the Boiler Room chat room. Something I’ve seen before where people either trash the genre or the fact that it’s a woman DJing. Why it would make any difference what gender the DJ has? makes no sense.

Mixmag also had enough not too long ago during their LDN Live stream and posted a statement on their Facebook page

Boiler Room went of on twitter to denounce this behavior and that they are taking action to prevent the trash talk in the comments.

Gabriel Szatan, host and programmer at Boiler Room, spoke to FACT Magazine about this:

“We obviously can’t just shut down any comment when someone is like, ‘They fucked up that mix, that song is shit’ but we can’t allow straight up vile transphobic, misogynistic, racist things to carry on. We’re scratching our heads on determining how to monitor it but we know that today is the line in the sand. It [will be] difficult, but that’s not to absolve ourselves. As the biggest live streaming company in the underground that should stand [up] for its liberal values, we know now that it’s our responsibility to lead the field.”- Read the full story here

 

While there was some negativity lets not forget that Boiler Room x Daily Motion in Paris had a massive line up with the Chicago House legend DJ Deeon, Nightwave, Feadz, Detente and Marvy da Pimp of Booty Call records. View the full show below.
