Tyler The Creator Met With Protests In Australia

(AllHipHop News) Odd Future frontman Tyler, The Creator just started his Australian joint tour with fellow Wolf Gang emcee Earl Sweatshirt this week, but his appearance in the Pacific country is already brewing controversy.

A feminist group called Collective Shout is protesting Tyler’s visit to Australia stating in a post on their website:

Tyler the Creator promotes hate speech against women, perpetuating male entitlement to use women’s bodies, to regard women as “bitches”, “sluts” and “hoes” for their sexual use. Tyler the Creator’s glorification of rape and violence against women could be considered inciting his fans to commit violent crimes against them.

It is our hope that you would consider the best interests of Australia, including the safety of our female citizens.We ask you to act urgently to revoke Tyler the Creator’s Visa so that he cannot promote his misogynistic attitudes to Australian audiences.

Collective Shout has requested that Australia’s Minister for Immigration and Citizenship revoke Tyler’s visa effectively kicking him out of the country.

The always outspoken Tyler took to Twitter to address his Australian critics.

There have been several issues involving American Hip Hop artists’ concerts in Australia over the last few months.

In April, the Nas headlining Movement Festival was cancelled in part because scheduled performer 2 Chainz was not granted a visa, and that same month the annual Superfest Tour featuring T.I., 50 Cent, and J. Cole was postponed by the show’s producer because of “difficulty completing venue contract arrangements.”

Tyler and Earl are still scheduled to perform tonight in Melbourne and tomorrow in Brisbane.
