Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator Arrested

Tyler, the Creator

Tyler, the Creator planned a promotional blitz for his solo album Goblin, but here’s one headline he may not have anticipated. The Odd Future frontman was reportedly arrested today in Los Angeles while promoting his new project.

Tyler appeared at Westchester High School to promote Goblin‘s release. Students crowded outside to get a closer look at the rapper and fellow OFWGKTA member Jasper Dolphin, who were subsequently handcuffed and released. While the exact details of the arrest are unknown, there are reports and photos of their skateboards being confiscated.

An outraged Tyler, who is still expected to perform at his release show in West Hollywood tonight, took to Twitter to express his anger over the situation. “F**K POLICE F**K YOU ALL I HOPE YOU ALL DIE,” he tweeted. “I WILL NEVER RESPECT YOU.”

Odd Future’s resident crooner Frank Ocean was also arrested late last month and had a similar reaction following the incident. “I swear if i weren’t sane in mind I’d throw a fuckin molotov in a cop car right now,” he vented.

    @Mr Xclusive, If you’ve listened to their music, I’m sure you’d say otherwise. I’d say more, but I’m no troll.

    For everyone who thinks this was fake it wasnt, i witnessed the whole thing and him and his friend were waiting for the light and or skool cop came in the car and got out and began cussin and yelling AT him to put his skateboard done and he said “i bought this” and the cop began to push him and took his skateboard and threw it on the ground and arrested him in front of all the kids at our skool . It was really overdramatic he was arrested i believe because the cop got mad that he refused him and because he was passing out promo flyers

    Police never fuck with me cause I don’t break no laws. You idiots don’t realize the next time someone rapes your mom, kills your dad, and robs you, you will cry for the fuckin cops. Ya a few might be assholes, but if you aint breaking the law they wont fuck with you, if you dont like the law then legislate for change or move to another country you pussies. Tyler is an emotional train wreck with daddy issues. He looks like a 35 year old pedophile dressed in 14 yr old kids clothes.
