Your support leads to Tyler, The Creator cancelling tour

TylerCancelled.jpg

Australian women and girls breathed a sigh of relief after Tyler, The Creator cancelled his tour following a Collective Shout letter to the immigration department.

The American rapper’s music is filled with sexually violent lyrics, including references to rape, strangling, mutilating and chopping up women, stuffing their bodies into car boots, trapping them in his basement, and raping their corpses.

We appealed to Immigration Minister Peter Dutton to deny Tyler a visa on the basis that “the content of the product he sells propagates discriminatory ideas about women and other groups, and represents a danger to a segment of the Australian community on the potential basis of incitement to acts of hatred”.

Thank you for helping to speak up against Tyler, The Creator’s misogynistic lyrics and demeaning attitude towards women. Girls deserve more! You’re helping inspire them to reject toxic messages and see their true value!

    Derek, do you understand that Collective Shout does not have the authority to prevent someone from entering the country? That would be immigration, if an individual fails to pass the character test. However, Tyler the Creator was not denied entry, he cancelled his tour. Perhaps try reading the article before making unfounded and inaccurate comments.

    Tyler isn’t a rapist or a murderer- great observation, can you now indicate where this assertion was made?

    You are correct, Tyler fans can still access his music, however due to his sexually violent lyrics and his incitement to violence against certain Australian women we sought to deny him a platform to promote his brand of misogyny here. Free speech does not entitle one to speech free from criticism or from the consequences of hateful speech.

    Oh, and freedom of speech is a right. So you managed to punish someone for speaking freely. Please delete my comment to further prove my point.

    Fuck this website. Tyler isn’t a rapist or a murderer. He’s a great musician. You removed him from a country. Congrats. His fans will still buy and appreciate his music. Thanks for sucking some of the fun out an entire country.
