Last week, Tyler the Creator took the heat for Justin Bieber's alleged joy ride, Tweeting that he was driving the singer's Ferrari when neighbors complained it was speeding around town on Memorial Day.
Now, Tyler himself is under fire for comments made in Australia.
It all started with feminist protester Talitha Stone petitioning to have the artist's Visa revoked because there are rules in the nation against visitors who ?vilify or incite discord? and ?songs advocating rape and extreme violence against women."
In response, during yesterday's concert Down Under, Tyler told the crowd there was someone trying to give him the boot and said:
?I wish she could hear me call her a b?-, too, f?ing whore.?
Turns out she did: Stone was in the audience at the time!
And she replied with a column in The Guardian titled ?Tyler the Creator Shouldn?t Be Allowed to Verbally Abuse Me."
"At his incitement of violence towards me, the crowd went wild, cheering and pumping their fists," she wrote. "The underaged fans ? of which there were many ? were groomed into mini ?Tyler? behaviour. Rape is funny!"
Australia typically has been hesitant to let American hip hop artists perform on its stages.
In April, the Movement Festival was canceled because 2 Chainz couldn?t obtain a Visa, and then the Superfest Tour with T.I., 50 Cent, and J. Cole was postponed for similar reasons, making it curious how Tyler was ever allowed in the country to begin with.
