Tyler, The Creator Defends Drake Through Tweets

Don’t even get Tyler started on Hotline Bling.

After viral videos, memes, and controversies surrounding Drake’s being boo-ed off stage this past weekend at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival, Tyler has taken to Twitter to speak out.

In all caps, Tyler said: “I thought bringing one of the biggest artist (sic) on the fucking planet to a music festival was fire! But flipside, a lil tone deaf knowing the specific crowd it drew. Some created a narrative in their head and acted out like assholes when it didn’t come true and I don’t fuck with that.”

He continued on ranting with caps lock held down in eight seperate tweets, stating things like, “This ***** did Feel No Ways! Song is beautiful. Also, mostly everyone was having a great time, those shits in the front area were the ones being mad rude, which, I can see why, but, nah, fuck that, y’all represented me and Flod to my guest and made us look sooo entitled and trash.”

Tyler proceeded to change the bio in his Twitter to, “Embarassed by fans right now,” which had people hysterical. Drake supporters were so grateful to Tyler for backing up the legendary rapper. Though, Drake has proved time and time again that he can hold his own. This morning @champagnepapi himself shared an Instagram post with the caption, “Plot twist…just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30.”

Fans who attended the festival took to social media to state that the only reason they were so upset by the Drake performance was not that they don’t like the rapper, but because they were hoping the special guest would have been Frank Ocean. Though there is no excuse in Tyler’s eyes, he did thank fans for coming out and showing their support, tweeting, “But hey man shit happens, all jokes aside shit lowkey funny hahaha, aside from that, hope everyone had a good time. Again, no arrest no bullshit man a lot of people enjoyed it, thanks again!”
