I Stand with Coralie

Take a stand against online abuse and violence against women

US rapper Tyler the Creator has announced that he has been banned from Australia. 

Collective Shout had written a letter to the Department of Immigration calling for Tyler the Creator's visa to be revoked. We argued that Tyler's behaviour and message would vilify and incite discord in the Australian community, specifically towards women and girls.

The vilification and abuse has begun - incited by Tyler himself - and he hasn't even reached our shores. Tyler's single tweet identifying Coralie Alison as the cause of his visa woes has led to countless threats to rape, mutilate and murder.  

Incredibly, it has been reported that the Department of Immigration has not yet made a decision on Tyler's visa, but this has not stopped the rage and the death threats.


In a statement of solidarity, End Online Misogyny has published a sample of the abuse that Collective Shout's Coralie Alison has received. You can view that here. The abuse and threats continue to come in thick and fast.


Meanwhile, we have received an outpouring of support from others who are disgusted with the level of abuse directed towards Coralie. Many are using the hashtag #IStandWithCoralie to show their support for Coralie and other women who dare to take a stand in the public space. The support for Coralie shows that we are not going to take this anymore. We will stand together. We will not be silenced.

    Well done Ladies! I am pleased to see feminists unafraid to take on the vile nasty misogynist crap that has for way too long been defining #Rap and #HipHop culture. As a mother of two young black women I can tell you there is great music out there by black artists without all this hate speech so we must say STOP! and you have! Bravo! #IStandWithCollectiveShout

    You are brave, Coralie and we all are behind you in this campaign. “Inciting discord in the community” is clearly evident from Tyler.

    We have refugees who legitimately want to make contributions to this country and we allow this trash to come in with antiquated ideas to dehumanise women.

    People tend to attack what they fear. Love will always win over fear. You’re not alone Coralie.
