Tyler, The Creator took to Twitter to slam attendants of his 2019 Flog Gnaw event that booed his surprise headliner Drake.

The annual Los Angeles festival featured artists like Brockhampton, Solange, and YG—with its headliner kept a surprise until revealed on stage. In a slew of fan-recorded videos, Drake is revealed to be the secret headliner and is met with boos from the audience. The crowd soon started chanting “We want Frank,” since online speculation grew the headliner would be him.

Tyler tweeted earlier Monday:

“I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE FUCKING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE! BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW. SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE ASSHOLES WHEN IT DIDNT COME TRUE AND I DONT FUCK WITH THAT.”

He also said the audience response was like “mob mentality and cancel culture in real life.” He also said it made the crowd and festival look “SOOO ENTITLED AND TRASH.” He continuously thanked Drake and his tweetstorm and hoped everyone had a good time nonetheless.

Check out the tweetstorm below, then watch the new music video for Danny Brown and Q-Tip’s “Best Life.”
