Mize accused of sexual assault, swiftly gets pulled off lineups & producers remove their collaborations

Mize, a semi-popular dubstep DJ/producer, is currently being read his rights by past contemporaries and fans after @emdelhoops on Twitter came out with accusations of sexual assault against him. Her caption and statement alleges that Mize initiated a cease and desist against her prior to her revealing her story.

“Towards the end of the night everyone was going to bed and I was falling asleep alone on the couch. Ian [Mize] had gone upstairs but came back down to invite me upstairs with him and his friend. […] I decided to pass out in the bed with them platonic and as friends just to cuddle. I had also seen him earlier in the night with another woman so I never thought he had any intentions other than to hang out.

She continued, “But once I started falling asleep Ian kept moving my hand to touch his dick and I would move it away and this kept happening. The next day I confronted him via text about what the fuck was going on that night and he just played it off and said he was confused.”

@emdelhoops was inspired to come out with her encounter after she received a cease and desist to “quiet anything I had to say before I had a chance to speak on my experience.”

Within an hour of the story coming out, GRiZ removed Mize from the lineup of Another World, saying, “Won’t tolerate sexual abuse allegations. Blindsided by the news. My heart goes out to the victims, who never deserved to be treated that way.”

Additionally, within the same time frame, Space Wizard initiated the removal of his collaborations with Mize with any remaining royalties being donated to Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).

Peekaboo and Mersiv shared their own thoughts about the situation early this morning, as well.

In addition to the recount from @emdelhoops, a Reddit post from August 2021 is reappearing, telling of a similar situation in which Mize allegedly became near- or blackout drunk and assaulted a woman he was in the process of sexually assaulting, giving her a black eye before passing out himself.
