Tyler The Creator Responds To Criticism By LGBT Groups

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMTVMusic MinuteAwardzEminem

tyler the creator controversial new album

Sorry Tyler, but we just don't see how it's okay to see the word "fa**ot" 213 times in an album!!!!

Yesterday, GLAAD and other LGBT groups spoke out against MTV VMA winner Tyler the Creator's new album, and we were pretty sad to hear all the facts about the anti-gay album.

Now, Tyler has responded to the widespread public criticism. Here's what he had to say about it:

"Well, I have gay fans and they don't really take it offensive, so I don't know. If it offends you, it offends you…If you call me a n—a, I really don't care, but that's just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don't give a sh–."

And as we mentioned yesterday, here's more that Tyler had to say in response:

"I’m not homophobic. I just think 'f***ot' hits and hurts people. It hits. And 'gay' just means you’re stupid. I don't know, we don’t think about it, we're just kids. We don’t think about that s**t. But I don't hate gay people. I don't want anyone to think I’m homophobic."

Sorry Tyler, but we're still not sold! Hopefully MTV will realize the mistake they're making by supporting someone like this.

Even Eminem was never THIS bad…

    he's got a point. sometimes putting meaning behind words aren't what they are supposed to mean…..



  2. 2

    Michelle Bachman and her husband were caught sucking his cock back stage.



  3. 3

    He's a complete moron and I'm certain didn't graduate from High School.



  4. 4

    MTV could card less what a bunch of pole suckers think.



  5. 5

    Isn't this a case of the pot calling the kettle black? What was that descriptive word you called Will.I.Am after you lied about him punching you?



  6. 6

    who cares what this nig*ga has to say anyway



  7. 7

    I'm positive that word was used more then 1,000 times on this site, let alone coming out of you're own mouth Mario.



  8. 8

    as a homo, I could care less, it's only song lyrics, and you shouldn't either given you've used it pretty freely yourself, not to mention all the derogatory things you have said about people and mostly underage girls over the years. You're a fraud and a hypocrite, perez. deal.



  9. 9

    Freedom of Speech Suckas!!!! If you don't like it, don't listen. Who cares what this kid says anyway. It doesn't affect your life unless you let it.



  10. 10

    perez, stop taking things out of context and putting it as relevant news because of your "anti-gay" sensitivities. tyler is not out to get you



  11. 11

    His best friend is a lesbian, and she doesn't give a shit neither. He's not homophobic. And he did graduate high school, and he's very smart if you watch his Drone Interview.



  12. 12

    this fool is a loser anyways. did anyone catch him limping when he went up to get his award… he can't even walk let alone rap.



  13. 13

    Who is this guy and why does he look like he just shit himself??

    Wonder how long before this "artist" and Lil' Wayne are the new LGBT power couple?



  14. 14

    He's an idiot fuck anyway…



  15. 15

    Re: jenwill74 – jen he broke his ankle and just got the cast off…when he jumped on stage he re-injured it..check the facts…the real ones not the lies Mario post



  16. 16

    Tyley never ceases to amaze me. He is definitely odd.. but is that such a bad thing? it gets so lame seeing the same old cookie cutter hollywood sell out acts. Most people would be back tracking an trying everything to cover up how they feel.. at least Tyler is honest about his use of the word as well as his music. He is entertaining and his i dont give a fk attitude is what keeps him interesting. His videos are hard to watch, but at the same time they captivate you and you just can't look away.. Yonkers anyone? LOL. Keep doing your thin OFWG :)

    Re: jenwill74 – Ummm.. if you knew anything about him, you would know that not too long ago, he broke his foot in a skate boarding accident (maybe his leg, i don't remember) and had a cast on for quite some time, so it is more then likely a limp due to the fact that his leg is probably still hurting from the incident… Don't talk smack unless you know the facts. typical mass media spaz.



  18. 18

    perez, i might not visit your site anymore.



  19. 19

    Stop using your sexuality to hate on other people! Stop trying to seek attention from it! Being gay is not a big deal, the fact someone uses words like fa**ot actually shows its accepted! It shows that it's so normal that people use the word freely becuase by now you shouldnt be offended anymore! Jump off the gay bandwagon and get over it! People like you are the ones that make it hard for normal gay people to come out! Being gay isn't special, you are born that way so stop trying to seek some sort of special treatment for it and just live your life! Gosh, any chance you get to make something of it you take it! Don't use being gay as an excuse to just be an arsehole! Sorry rant over…



  20. 20

    Someone said something to offend a gay person….? Kil him quick, it's the only answer… lol get over yourselves LGJBTGWHINER community.



  21. 21

    Yet it is ok for you to call Will I Am that, then whine and complain that he beat your ass after the fact… Such a bitch, get over yourself!



  22. 22

    You don't like his music, don't listen to it. Rappers have thrown the fa**ots and Ni**gas around for ages and nobody ever thought shit about it. Rap is what it is. I agree with DMX though, it has become too soft here lately and then people like Mario feel offended. It is funny how a couple of years ago nobody ever complained, until Mario came along. I feel personally offended by Lady XEROX Gaga, so I avoid her anywhere I can. See me crying????

    Re: booyaa123 – You have my respect. Well said.

  24. yeez says – reply to this

    Re: MsJules – Well said. His videos and music are provocative, unconventional, socially relevant, and, to some, offensive. I believe most art history professors would argue that such elements are almost always present in any form of art.



  25. 25

    I don't understand…people can get upset b/c he used the word "f****t" too many times in an album, but I don't ever hear people being blasted this way for using the 'n' word every other sentence on albums. Now yes, I will agree, 213x on one album is a bit much, but I don't think it's that big of a deal…I completely support gay rights, but there are just some things you shouldn't cry about so much.



  26. 26

    Re: orangestar – Your right, except for one thing. People use that word to try and HUMILIATE those that are gay, its not a good thing, don't try and justify it.



  27. 27

    Seriously?? All of you people are defending this loser? Never heard his album and don't intend to listen to it. He says he uses the F word because it "hits and hurts people," and "gay means stupid." It hits and hurts because people started using these terms when homophobia was way more rampant, and to be considered gay was an insult. The roots of these words is what causes them to be offensive. If you don't think its homophobic then go get yourself an education. What if people used the word "asian" to mean stupid? "oh, hey, your so asian!" I think asian people would be pretty pissed off and hurt about it.

    This kid needs to grow up. What a loser.



  28. 28

    Re: MadelineNichole – most, if not all, of the people using the N-word on albums are black people. there's a difference sweetheart :)



  29. 29

    Sorry Perez, but as a lesbian I think the fact that you even posted this kid's pic on your column gives him some "credibility" as an "artist". That gives him power. I have watched you turn into a mainstream entertainment blogger over the years and you have a lot of people who pay attention to you and they pay attention to who and what you are talking about. Don't give this kid the time of day- maybe he will fade away.



  30. 30

    hahaha I like his response. He doesn't give a sh** and you shouln't either. Freedom of speech. Just don't listen to it if you don't like it.



  31. 31

    Re: LUCASAZ – Doesn't GAY mean also happy? You don't sound very happy. It is music and not politics. I am a confident, white, married mother of three and when the Ying Yang Twins sing about "sweat dripping down their balls" and "To all you bitches crawl" I sing happily along. I don't get offended. But then I am not a raging feminist….



  32. 32

    Give him a break hes young and he doesnt mean it malicously. I think perez and his bloggers need to grow up and stop crying about these stupid names and understand these words dont mean the same thing anymore. And maybe look at the positive things that are happening for your community such as New York legalising same sex marriage and the law that was past for dont ask dont tell instead of being offended by a 20 year old rapper thats trying to make it WITHOUT the support of MTV. If you dont like what he has to say dont listen or buy his music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  33. 33

    He and his crew behaved like ghetto pieces of trash at the VMAs.
    Completely embarrassing.

  34. 3l$@ says – reply to this


    34

    My only problem with him is he hates on Bruno Mars WEAK ASS



  35. 35

    Re: Angus8 – Well he never claimed not to be a hood rat….all he claimed is that he is not a homophobe.



  36. 36

    he's dub and why do you give a fuck? i seriously doubt he is homophobic. probably just like most other people who just don't care as long as it's not affecting them. get over it.



  37. 37

    Re: LUCASAZ – Yeah…and most of the people getting upset for him using the word "f—-t" are gay…So, what's your point?
