It seems as if Tyler the Creator has had enough with the recent bans from countries and has decided to speak out.
During a recent interview with The Guardian, Tyler shared his thoughts on the fact that numerous countries won’t allow him back on their soil. He even said “I’m being treated like a terrorist.”
According to government papers that were given to Tyler and obtained by United Kingdom outlet The Guardian, the artist’s banishment was due to lyrics found in the songs VCR, Blow, Sarah, Tron Cat and French. They also were displeased with his albums Bastard, in 2009, and Goblin, in 2011.
Tyler had harsh words for the UK after they banned his entry to the country. “Now [the UK government] are just followers. Everyone is a follower, just following what other countries are doing,” said Tyler.”I’m bummed out because it’s like, dude, I’m not homophobic. I’ve said this since the beginning. The “hating women” thing – it’s so nuts. It’s based on things I made when I was super-young, when no one was listening [to my music]. Like, I wrote Blow when I was reading about different people in American history. One of the people happened to be [the serial killer] Ted Bundy, and I wrote a song from his point of view.”
Tyler may have a serious issue on his hands, as his lack of admission to countries seems to be a growing trend. This could hurt his fans and hurt his pockets financially.
The Odd Future OG may has a tough choice to make. He can either: 1-Bite the bullet and hope things blow over with these countries in time. 2-Apologize for his old lyrics, which will probably lift and ban and move on.
