GLAAD isn’t too happy with Tyler The Creator and Odd Future. Tyler The Creator and Odd Future’s second album contains over 200 anti-gay slurs. The organization is not feeling Tyler’s lyrical content on his latest album Goblin as well.
GLAAD released a statement regarding his appearance on MTV’s Video Music Awards and his win for Best New Artist.
“Rather than providing simply a larger platform, MTV and other networks should educate viewers about why anti-gay and misogynistic language has no place in the music industry today,” said Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD. “Given Tyler’s history of such remarks, viewers and potential sponsors should refrain from honoring homophobia and in the future look to a more deserving artist.”
Tyler has not responded to GLAAD’s statement.
