GLAAD Upset Over Tyler, The Creator’s VMA Win


And if you didn’t think more people were upset with Tyler, The Creator’s VMA win, GLAAD chimes in and bashes MTV for supporting Tyler. On this album “Goblin,” Tyler uses 213 anti-gay slurs on his album. Who the hell sits down and counts that. Anyways, here’s what the The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation had to say about this. Tyler, The Creator has yet to respond.

“Rather than providing simply a larger platform, MTV and other networks should educate viewers about why anti-gay and misogynistic language has no place in the music industry today,” said Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD. “Given Tyler’s history of such remarks, viewers and potential sponsors should refrain from honoring homophobia and in the future look to a more deserving artist.”
