Protesters In Australia Want Tyler, The Creator Kicked Out Of The Country


Tyler, The Creator is having trouble escaping from his early shock rap days. The Odd Future leader is out in Australia for his tour, which kicked off in Perth on Tuesday. Though he is scheduled to perform at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Thursday, protestors are pushing to have him kicked out of Australia.

Australian female rights group Collective Shout have created an online petition  in an attempt to revoke Tyler’s visa, stating his music possesses “graphic descriptions of rape and violence against women.”

Aussie politician Alex Hawke echoed the same sentiments, writing to the country’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard, saying: “Allowing this man a visa to promote his misogyny to audiences, including children, is a complete disgrace and an absolute insult to all of us and to women in particular.”

Hawke then stated the Prime Minster’s past claims of calling out misogyny whenever she saw it. “Prime Minister, I urge you… to seriously reconsider and review the visa granted to Tyler, The Creator under section 501—the character assessment test. All of us in his House should stop the spread of this vile message against women.”

Earlier today, a public appearance by Tyler was cancelled in Syndey’s George Street by authorities.

Despite of the threat of having his visa removed, Tyler addressed the situation on Twitter.
