Tyler, The Creator Verbally Assaults Protester During Australia Show
Despite being criticized by Australian protesters over his song lyrics, Tyler, The Creator proceeded to make references to rape and killing during his Sydney show.
Odd Future rapper Tyler, The Creator went on to drop quite the expletive-filled, verbal tirade during his show this week at Sydney, Australia’s Enmore Theatre. The California-based emcee’s rant, which was caught on videotape, stemmed from a protest formed by the grassroots organization, Collective Shout.
One Collective Shout member, who exchanged words with Tyler via Twitter prior to the show and was also the target of his verbal assault, was present at the rapper’s Sydney concert and taped his rant.
“Fuckin bitch, I hope she hear me call her a bitch too. Fuckin whore. Aye this fuckin song is dedicated to you, you fuckin cunt,” said Tyler, before reportedly performing “Bitch Suck Dick.”
Tyler later went on to ask audience members if they were having a bad time at the concert or if they would “kill and rape” afterward.
“Be honest, how many people are having a bad time and how many people are gonna go kill and rape people after they leave this show,” the rapper questioned.
Described as an organization “against the objectification of women and sexualisation of girls in media, advertising and popular culture,” Collective Shout hopes their protests lead to Tyler’s visa being revoked by Australia’s Minister for Immigration and Citizenship.
