Two Women Claim They Were Assaulted At Tyler, The Creator Concert

(AllHipHop News) Tyler, The Creator’s Australian tour is over, but the California rapper isn’t leaving the island nation without controversy. After facing protests that his music was misogynistic from the feminist group Collective Shout this week, one of the organization’s members is claiming that she was verbally assaulted at Tyler’s Sydney show, and allegedly another women was sexually assaulted at that same concert.

Collective Shout’s Talitha Stone filed a complaint with police on Friday stating that she was constantly harassed by Tyler during his performance at the Enmore Theatre on Thursday night.

While speaking with police, Stone says officers informed her that they were already investigating an accusation of sexual assault at the show as well.

According to the Brisbane Times, a police spokesman has confirmed that a women filed a report saying she was sexually assaulted during a concert at the Enmore on Thursday, but apparently no formal statement has been taken yet.

In an article she wrote for The Guardian, Stone claims her abuse happened both in person at the concert and over Twitter.

On Wednesday, Stone sent out a tweet announcing that she would attend a Tyler signing event hosted at the Culture Kings clothing store, because she felt “they need educating on misogyny.”

Tyler then rewteeted Stone’s tweet to his 1.7 million followers. As a result, some of Tyler’s fans began to threaten and insult Stone over the social media site.

Despite the attacks on Twitter, Stone decided to attend Tyler’s concert to “gather evidence for [her] campaign.”

She claims to have recorded footage of the Odd Future leader calling her “bitch,” “whore,” and “cunt” (though the video embedded with the Guardian article does not show who exactly Tyler was referring to), and she says he dedicated the song “Bitch Suck Dick” to her which also cannot be confirmed.

Prior to Stone’s accusations, Collective Shout had requested that the Australian government revoke Tyler’s visa and expel him from the country. Tyler was able to complete his entire tour and says he enjoyed his time in Australia despite the controversy.
