The piece examined sexism in electronic music, and how the Krewella sisters (Jahan and Yasmine), might be bearing the brunt of it as lawsuits and countersuits against ex-band member Kris Trindl play out on the Internet.

His tweet read "EDM protip: if youre going to make a group / trio act... dont fire the guy who actually does shit", clearly indicating he did not feel the sisters contributed to the group in a meaningful way.
