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.
