Tyler the Creator recently told fans he had to cancel his four tour dates within the UK and Ireland for unspecified “Circumstances”. Today, the real reason for his cancellation has been revealed: officials in the United Kingdom are denying him entry for the next 3-5 weeks on the basis of his lyrical content.

 

Tylers manager posted a status on Tumblr stating:

 

“Tyler has been banned from entering the UK for somewhere between 3 to 5 years per a letter from the secretary of state for the home department of the united kingdom. The letter specifically cites lyrics he wrote 6-7 years ago for his albums bastard and goblin – the type of lyrics he hasn’t written since… Highlights from the letter include that his work “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality” and “fosters hatred with views thats seek to provoke others to terrorist acts..” i grew up on NWA, eminem and rage against the machine, so its hard to me to fully wrap my head this thought process and its implications.”

 

Tyler took to Twitter today (August 26) saying:

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
