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?
