Zedd Says He's 'Permanently Banned' from China - Here's Why

Zedd says that he has been “permanently banned” from China after he liked a tweet about the South Park episode that criticized the censorship by the Chinese government.

The 30-year-old DJ and music producer took to Instagram to share the message.

“I just got permanently banned from China because I liked a @southpark tweet,” Zedd wrote. He later added, “Just to clarify, this is NOT a joke. The government informed our promoters that if they don’t cancel my scheduled shows in China they would pull their cultural permits.”

Zedd‘s publicist confirmed the news to CNBC, saying, “This is true, yes, but we don’t have anymore info to give you at this time.”

The news comes just days after South Park was scrubbed from the internet in China following the airing of the “Band in China” episode.

Zedd Responds to Matthew Koma's Claims Calling Him 'Toxic'

Zedd is finally break his silence on his drama with Matthew Koma.

After Matt called him “toxic” and “self serving” while accusing him of taking credit for songs Matt supposedly wrote, Zedd is defending himself a lengthy message posted on Twitter.

“I just wanted to let my fans know my side of the story,” Zedd writes. “I have given Matt songwriting credit for every topline he has written.”

Zedd goes on to explain his side of the story, saying that he gave Matt proper writing credit.

“What hurts the most is that Matt feels underappreciated and treated unfairly while I have countless times mentioned him (or) his name, while we’ve done promo together, performed our songs live together and I thought I was being supportive,” Zedd continues. “Anywhere you look, you will see Matt credited for his work. I wish he would have just let me know in person what he was feeling. I never want anyone I work with to be unhappy. I treat everyone I work with with love and respect and it hurts me to see someone feeling differently after seven years.”

Zedd concluded his statement saying that he hopes that he and Matt can work things out.

“What I told Matt doesn’t change – I am incredibly proud of our work together and I continue to wish him nothing but the best,” Zedd writes. “Hopefully one day we can sit down together again as friends.”

Matthew Koma Calls Out Zedd as 'Toxic,' 'Self Serving,' & More in Lengthy Statement

Matthew Koma is finally speaking about his side of the story when it comes to the drama he went through with former collaborator Zedd.

“I want to finally be transparent about this,” Matthew wrote in a lengthy post to his Instagram account. “It’s a really sad truth because I’m extremely proud of the work he and I did together… unfortunately my good feelings toward those songs have all but disappeared as they were experienced alongside someone so toxic and self serving that it occupied the space where any happiness could exist.”

Matthew goes on to say that Zedd took credit for writing the lyrics for “Spectrum” and “Clarity,” when Matthew says he’s the one who actually wrote the lyrics.

He goes on to make allegations of not getting paid, not being credited in interviews, not being invited to the Grammys along with Zedd, and more.

“With millions and millions of dollars and so many hit songs, you’d think you could afford to treat people with kindness and appreciate their role in helping you achieve your dream,” Matthew added. “Ego, success, it’s all happened and been told before. Especially in the context of music….[I'd] rather work at Starbucks and clean the toilets than ever experience that abusive dynamic again. Toxicity doesn’t breed happiness.

So far, Zedd has not responded. If you don’t know, Matthew is engaged to Hilary Duff, who wrote a supportive comment in the text of the post.

“This is so important for people who love the music to know. Writers are taken advantage of , ignored, and mistreated. Proud of you for finally speaking up ♥️,” Hilary wrote.
