Tyler The Creator tweets that he's been barred from entering Australia.
Odd Future's always had a rocky relationship with Oceania. On their first world tour in 2011, Tyler The Creator called Australia "racist"; in 2013, he was reported to Aussie police after lashing out at a feminist group onstage; in 2014, the entire group was banned from entering New Zealand. Earl Sweatshirt continued this trend of pissing off residents of Oceania last weekend by punching a fan who hopped onstage in Australia, and now Tyler's announced that he's been banned from the country.
Scheduled to perform in four Australian cities in September, Tyler took to Twitter today to deliver the news and mention Coralie Alison, Director of Operations at Collective Shout, a feminist organization that started a petition to get Tyler banned from the country.
