Solidarity with Coralie Alison as Tyler the Creator fans send death threats

US rapper Tyler the Creator has announced that he has been banned from Australia. This is yet to be confirmed by the Department of Immigration, but that hasn't stopped Tyler the Creator's fans from unleashing their rage. 

In a statement of solidarity, End Online Misogyny has published a sample of the abuse that Collective Shout's Coralie Alison has received over the last few hours. 

*content warning* This is not an easy read. This is what happens when women speak out against misogyny and this is why we need you to stand with us.

    I want to relay a point on Tyler’s behalf. Why was she even there? Apparently this Coralie woman was at his show and before the doors opened she was harassing fans and shouting abrasive remarks at them. She then apparently caused a scene in the middle of the performance with another fan and recorded Tyler, not objectifying her and singling her out, but him telling her that what she was doing was fucked up and that what she was doing and saying was making her look like a bitch. So Coralie’s protectors, why was she there? If you hate Tyler so much then don’t go to his show. All you wanted to do was set him up to look like he hates women. If anyone is giving women a bad name it’s you all. A bunch of liars and con artists. You all should be ashamed of yourselves, fighting for a cause is not building your evidence of injustice around lies.

    bzman “drink bleach and die slut” is not criticism, it is abuse. There is nothing wrong with criticism, debate and discussion but threatening to hunt someone down and attack them is neither of those.

    This is rich, so you try to get a rapper banned from Australia and then you’re shocked, shocked that his fans would get angry and send you hate mail? I got zero sympathy for you, zero. If you didn’t want to be criticized you shouldn’t have tried to censor things and just live and let live. I’d say it’s tit for tat but I don’t see a petition trying to get you banned from a country. Maybe if there was you’d appreciate the value of free speech.

    Sorry Ross, what is it you think Coralie did that was wrong?

    “pissed off a whole audience base” – well that would seem evident, sure.

    “for NO reason” – Ross do you want to do some reading about the issue before you comment here again? I don’t think someone would bother writing a letter to immigration for NO reason.

    I was completely new to this controversy before I saw it on Twitter.
    Rap sucks. It is loud, disjointed, its lyrics are more often than not puerile and when they aren’t, don’t rhyme and are punctuated with various grunts and such.
    It really is not my thing. Because it is not my thing, I avoid buying rap music, watching rap videos or going to rap concerts.
    Those that DO like rap music can go to rap concerts and watch rap singing performing and if they like that kind of thing, more power to them.
    THAT is where Coralie did wrong. She could not let people with different tastes and values than her be. No, she does not enjoy it so she will be damned if anyone else will. She will try to stop the Australian fans of this rap music from enjoying their singer in Australia.
    She pissed off a whole audience base for NO reason, in forcing HER personal views. If she doesn’t like Tyler, she should stay away from him. Doesn’t like his music, avoid it. No she couldn’t do it. She rallied her followers to try and block Tyler, impact on his livelihood and disappoint his fans.
    What, you guys are expecting after SHE did that to HIM, that he would criticise HIS fans (or perhaps trolls, we don’t know) from railing against her? NO.
    She did the wrong thing and she upset people and she is getting backlash for doing so
    Is what these people are writing, nice? No. And? Is it acceptable? No. Ought they be banned from Twitter? Sure. What she did was wrong and what they did is wrong.
    She should have minded her own business in the first instance.

    If someone is spewing that much vitriole, rape threats and death threats, over a rappers immigration denial (that isn’t even confirmed) it’s reasonable to assume they hate women.

    I don’t agree with everything Tyler says but This is ridiculous. He/They don’t hate women. They hate you guys and are making fun of you because of your claims. Tyler gives no fucks because he doesn’t actually “glorify the objectification of women”. Feminists get a bad name because of stuff like this. It did absolutely nothing except get him banned. Why don’t you try to talk to him or make actual points instead of claiming everyone that commented hates women. Lame.
