Tyler, the Creator has been forced to cancel his Australian tour thanks to a beef with a feminist group. The group, Collective Shout, was trying to get the former Odd Future rep’s visa banned last month because they feel that his music “propagates discriminatory ideas about women and other groups, and represent a danger to a segment of the Australian community on the potential basis of incitement to the acts of hatred.”
After the Cherry Bomb rapper tweeted about what was happening and mentioned the Collective Shout director Coralie Alison, his fans sent some vicious tweets her way.
The company behind the tour, Frontier Touring, confirmed that the tour has been cancelled.
“We would much rather come to Australia when it isn’t surrounded in controversy. I love my fans there and hopefully I’ll be back soon. Don’t do drugs,” Tyler said in the statement.
Though the Australian leg of his Cherry Bomb World Tour is a no go, the “IFHY” rapper will be heading out on tour with A$AP Rocky for the Rocky and Tyler Tour, which kicks off in September.
