Disney Investigating Deadmau5 For Kidnapping Mickey? Wait, WHAT?!

We know what you're thinking, but this doesn't seem to be an April Fools' Prank at all!

According to reports that came out hours before the prank-themed holiday even began, Disney is throwing serious shade at one of the biggest DJs around.

Late last week the trajillion dollar company's lawyers notified the U.S. Trademark Office that they were looking into Deadmau5's trademarked mouse head (not literally, LOLz), presumably because it looks so much like their portrait of the super-iconic Mickey Mouse.

Joel Zimmerman, a.k.a. Deadmau5 attempted to trademark his signature mouse look last year, which could eventually net him loads of money as far as merchandise and other stuff is concerned. So, the suits at Disney might attempt to argue that Deadmau5 is infringing upon their long-standing and somewhat similar brand.

We aren't picking sides — if anything, we're microwaving a bag of popcorn and watching all the dramz unfold — but we can't help but wonder if anyone would actually confuse these two wildly different portraits (above)!

Do U think Disney is blowing all of this out of proportion?

    If that's the case, then why doesn't the estate of Jimmy "Snozzola" Durante sue Lea Michelle? Or Dr. Scholl sue Perez?
