Lithuanian producer Ten Walls, who’s most significant chart success came with 2014 hit ‘Walking With Elephants’, is facing backlash and probable exile from the music community following a bizarre and homophobic rant on Facebook in which he likened homosexuals to pedophiles.

Gay Star News reported that the producer, real name Marijus Adomaitis, had posted “I remember producing music for one Lithuanian musician, who tried to wash my brain that I don’t need to be so conservative and intolerant about them. When I asked him “what would you do if you realized that your 16-year-old son’s browny (anus) is ripped by his boyfriend? Well he was silent.”

He went on to say that in “the good 90s… these people of different breed where fixed.” And even made a comparison between homsexuality and pedophilia, saying that “One of my first gigs in Ireland, on my way to [my] hotel I saw a church with a fence decorated with hundreds of baby shoes. Naturally I wondered why? Unfortunately a priest’s lie for many years was uncovered when children were massively raped. Unfortunately the people of other breed continue to do it and everyone knows it but does nothing.”

Marijus swiftly deleted the post and issued an apology but the backlash to the original post is sure to continue for some time.
