Tegan & Sara Member Blasts Tyler, the Creator

Tyler, the Creator and the Odd Future collective have certainly shook the industry for the past few months. Due to their lyrics and unorthodox approach to the media, the Wolf Gang have sparked more than just controversy. Besides critical acclaim, there are also less flattering comments regarding the OFWGKTA phenomenon. Sara Quin, half of Tegan and Sara, spoke up and published "A Call for Change" – a monologue which criticizes the immense attention Tyler has been receiving lately.

"When will misogynistic and homophobic ranting and raving result in meaningful repercussions in the entertainment industry? When will they be treated with the same seriousness as racist and anti-Semitic offenses? While an artist who can barely get a sentence fragment out without using homophobic slurs is celebrated on the cover of every magazine, blog and newspaper, I’m disheartened that any self-respecting human being could stand in support with a message so vile. As journalists and colleagues defend, excuse and congratulate 'Tyler, the Creator,' I find it impossible not to comment. In any other industry would I be expected to tolerate, overlook, and find deeper meaning in this kid's sickening rhetoric? Why should I care about this music or its 'brilliance' when the message is so repulsive and irresponsible?... The more I think about it, the more I think people don't actually want to go up against this particular bully because he's popular. Who sticks up for women and gay people now? It seems entirely uncool to do so in the indie rock world, and I'll argue that point with ANYONE."

Tyler, the Creator did not hesitate to post his response to Sara's impassioned letter on Twitter yesterday: "If Tegan And Sara Need Some Hard D**k, Hit Me Up!" Tyler and the rest of Odd Future continue their U.S. tour tonight in Detroit. What are your thoughts on this?

     and a name like "dumb cunts" is a form of stupidity.

  • swag.

     This is fucking stupid. Tyler says all the time that his lyrics should NOT be taken seriously. This is all for FUN. People need to lighten the fuck up. It's not like Tyler only hates on homosexuals. He hates on so much shit, his fucking twitter is "fucktyler". This entire issue is an idiotic waste of time.

  • I’m the Pooh like Tigger dick.

    Stupidity, immaturity, or his own creativity. Who gives a fuck about what he says his name is? What he said is true.

  • I’m the Pooh like Tigger dick.

    This is art, expression of oneself. People shouldn't have to be limited on how it affects children. It's parental and personal responsibility to handle the music properly. 
    She IS overreacting. This is music, not fucking school or work, there are no rules or limits. It is not Tyler's direct fault that people take his lyrics to heart, he even tells people multiple times that they should NOT take his lyrics seriously. It's not his fault that people ignore/disregard his warning. It's like if you post a sign that says that there's a giant invisible wall around your yard, but people try to walk through anyways and run into the wall.

  • I’m the Pooh like Tigger dick.

    Earl is easily listed as a lyrical genius, and there are very few who even come close to Tyler's ability as a storyteller. The other members of the group are good, but I'll admit that they rarely come close to the talent of Wolf Gang.

  • I’m the Pooh like Tigger dick.

    no fernando, cause not all women = mothers
    kinda like how not all rectangles = squares, but some can.
    Logically, Brock's argument isn't that great, but your retort is clearly far less thought out.

    In general I'll say whatever the fuck I want tho.
    Your mom's fat.
    Black people are loud.
    Your dad is a faggot.
    Canadians are useless bitches.

    I can talk shit about whatever I want, and so can he.

  • think about it

     can you morons please stop justifying his homophobia and misogyny by saying we just shouldn't take it seriously. i don't take tyler serious, i think he's a stupid idiot. but being a stupid idiot doesn't protect you from people legitimately criticizing your bullshit. still waiting for someone to actually make an argument of substance to defend tyler's bullshit. if tyler can hate on everything, then everyone can equally hate on him and his idiotic mouth. can't wait until his 15 minutes are over.

  • think about it

     well i care what his name says because he's trying to diss tegan and sara as 'dumb cunts' for objecting to someone's homophobia and misogyny. sure there are no rules, but it doesn't mean assholes like tyler shouldn't face criticism for doing or saying stupid shit. music is a form or expression. saying faggot and bitch is a form of expressing hate towards people. stop justifying and please come up with a real argument people...you're stupidity is boring.

    Fuck You,,,, Fagot, you don't know the insanity that runs in his brain. Society made him that way from fucking slavery to fucking repulsive remarks. The main thing that trigger his behavior was not having a father figure and be tease by others for being himself. For example, being made fun of for having honors or advance classes in the 7th grade. No one took his insanity seriously so when he finally speaks of his dark thoughts dumb asses like you want to judge him. You don't get made when rappers or mc's call women hoes, I want the pussy or r&b singers talks about sex and grinding oh noooo that's what people love to hear rather then...I'm awesome and I fuck dolphins. He's a fantastic artist because unlike other mother fucking artists out there he's not afraid to express himself and do what / say whatever is on his mind.Respect him as someone people can relate to and understand that path of darkness. If the fucking songs are too exploited  for you then don't listen because to others it be the best type of music they ever heard of and can influence them to a future career that involves music you fucking cunt.

    Tegan and Sara are cool. But syd is a lesbian? Allgood for her standing up for what she believes is right though. People commenting on this shit need to learn respect.

    Yeah dude I don't know what you're talking about... there are hundreds of lyricists that are as good as Earl and plenty of Mcs that are better "storytellers" than Tyler.  I know he's doing his own thing and all, but there IS a ton of bandwagon hype around OF.

    All of you Tyler the Creator fans don't comprehend the eternal disaster in rap songs. I can say some are good but the vulgarity in some are wretched. All of you who say they listen to great music don't have a brilliant mindset. All you dare to care about is fucking the best and partying all night. At least Tegan and Sara know what they are fighting for. All of you rap fans require the finest cannabis and sexual pleasure. You don't see the beauty in humanity as the Quin sisters do. All of you need a piece of Tegan and Sara's hearts instilled in yours because morality these days is dying because people like Tyler the Creator just wants to cause controversy and get laid by all you less fortunate minded fans. Equality is better to strive for. you all make me sick. I will not let you terrorize an amazing duo just because of your incompetence. Yes, i'm waiting for change but it all this hate has to stop. Reward those who you believe are helping this nation out. Tyler the Creator still needs a morality check. His mind is good he just doesn't know how to use it.

  • Jamieshs

    these lesbos are just hating cause they arent gettin noticed as much. OFWGKTA. SWAG!

  • love a negro

    You're just wanting everything politically correct. It's art, and just like books use rhetoric and symbolism Tyler does too. When he's talking about bitches he's not talking about women in general he's talking about the women in his LIFE who have screwed him over before.

  • hello I’m me

    "ppl want art but cant handle the entire spectrum"

    HEY SO I HAVE A QUESTION. WHERE THE FUCK does that kind of comment come from when sexual abuse and homophobia are two very real, very present issues in American culture? 

  • Lindyellenlewis

    haha you can't compare tyler the creator to johnny cash 

  • Lindy

    thats not a nice thing to say. why would a person even say that about such cool and nice people.

  • Slowcheetah94

    so howd tht 15 minutes of fame theory work out for u bitches? thats wat i thought, OF

  • Redmothafucka

    Fuck sara and her main bitch tegan

  • Gtavc200

    Tyler is really...dumb. his lyrics are immature and just stupid. Ive never heard his music but reading the lyrics makes me embarassed that humans can write and listen to music like this. But I guess simple minded people need to listen to simple minded music right? Right.

  • Cyberchondriac

    And you afterwards, yeah?

  • Destinyhall18

    Tegan and sara just believe in gay equality strongly I'm sure there are some things that everyone get serious about because they strongly believe in it and others just laugh about it...

  • Lala Moremapp

    Okay fuck Tyler. I'm on the twins' side. He made a clear mistake. I know music is some way to express what you feel, but you have to tink of the audience's feelings towards what they're hearing, and Tyler obviously missed that part. AND TO THOSE BITCHES WHO ARE ON THAT DUDE'S SIDE BECAUSE THE TWINS ARE LESBIANS, SUCK MY NON-EXISTENT DICK.

  • Desinty

    Fuck u

    Tyler is HILARIOUS.

    Here in America, we use three periods, not three commas as an ellipsis. I quickly grew bored reading your comment because every sentence was a run-on sentence. If you're not ESL, there is no hope for you, son.
