It seems like yet another campaign to ban Odd Future lead rapper, Tyler, The Creator, has surfaced, but this time from the folks down under. Reports have surfaced, that due to Tyler’s “misogynistic hate speech against women, as well as homophobia” that the people of Australia want Tyler’s visa to be denied so that he can’t perform this coming September.
The campaign was created by activist group, Collective Shout. The group put out a statement saying:
Tyler’s 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 acts of hatred.
It hasn’t been confirmed if this ban is close to actually going to happen or if it’s still tryna get off the ground. Personally, I don’t think it’s fair that the Aussie want to ban Tyler especially considering that music is art and art is subjective. If that’s the case, they should ban all musicians in fear that they might take offense to the simplest of lyrics. What do you think?
