A week after producer Ten Walls’ homophobic rant on his personal Facebook page went viral and basically ended his career, Wolf + Lamb producer Tanner Ross has apologized for a barrage of awful tweets aimed to provoke Resident Advisor’s North American editor Andrew Ryce. Piecing together the story, Ross apparently didn’t like Ryce’s unimpressed review of Jamie xx’s new album, In Colour, and set out to piss Ryce off.
Ross tweeted: “Musta felt so good to give Jamie Xx a bad review. What was it like? Did your dick get hard?”
His follow-up: “@andrewryce like… I feel so cool just reading it. Can we rub our dicks together and go to Creamfields?” and “@andrewryce I was doing my dissertation at Fabric with Craig Richards before you came in someone’s ass.”
Ryce screenshotted the deplorable tirade (see below) and filed a complaint with Twitter, claiming Ross harassed and provoked him but reportedly to no avail.
As a result of the incident Ross was tossed from bill at the Crew Love party tonight in Barcelona.
When Ross’ comments went viral, he deleted many of the tweets and issued an apology on Facebook.
“I apologize to those who have been offended. Attacking someone verbally is absolutely wrong but I was not coming from a homophobic point of view. There really isn’t enough words that can express how sorry I am. I truly am sorry.”
Good luck on your next career, Tanner Ross. Dance music has no room for hate mongers like you.
