Tyler at FFF Fest (more by Tim Griffin)
Tyler
tyler

TMZ reports that Tyler, the Creator was arrested at his show at Hollywood's Roxy Theatre last night (12/22) for "suspicion of vandalism" after he "just destroyed an electric soundboard belonging to the venue." The NY Times confirms. A video below also shows that while throwing his fit on stage, he punched a sound guy. The police reports that "as [Tyler] was being escorted to a nearby radio car, the crowd exiting the venue became angry and rushed into the street, towards deputies." TMZ has a video of that, which you can watch below too. They also mention that "Tyler was taken into custody in front of his mother...who was visibly upset and yelled at the cops."

As expected, Tyler's fellow Odd Future members have wasted no time expressing their opinions on twitter. "Fuck sheriffs nigga WG," says Hodgy Beats, who continues, "Next year it wont be at the roxy." "Next year" refers to the fact that the show was the "Odd Future Christmas show." Jasper Dolphin tweeted, "Fuck The Police!," updating two hours later to, "Fuck The Roxy." Frank Ocean says, "dem hoelice yo," and Domo Genesis says, "fuck the feds!" And Mike G tweeted "Free Tyler."

UPDATE: Tyler is in fact a free man.

That's very punk rock. I bet BV readers think it's cool when white punk rockers act like this right?

The amount of racism in here is really disturbing.

GG Allin pulled the same shit and that idiot is dead. Tyler better get used to those handcuffs.

Not really. I don't think most people here are actually racist. They are using "nigger" just to shock people

Fucking dude, vanadalized another man's hummus bowl. That's some fucked up shit right there.

What would have been awesome is if that deputy's gun "accidentally" went off in Tyler's face! Everyone wins! XL sells 100,000 more records and we never have to hear this clown's name again!

Parent of the year. No wonder he turned out the way he is.

Good job continuing to NOT censor your comments BV. I prefer the pure honest hate of your readership.

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 1:04 PM

tabloid vegan once again.. I get sickened by this homophobe.

When you are a person of color and you resort to homophobia you are essentially lashing out at all oppressed cultures, including yourself by using the same hate.

what a fool.

1:04, really? At least say that in a post that's NOT about one of the most hateful, douchey, deserving-do-get-his-ass-beat human beings BV could possibly post about.

What happened to rappers getting arrested for some gangster shit...This kid's just a little bitch who throws temper tantrums. Biggie would eat him for lunch.

Destroying the venues soundboard fuckin' up shows for other acts playing there coming up come man that's some juvenile level shit no ones gonna put up with that. The cool factor is going down quick on this kid.

Dangerously approaching minute 15, Tyler the Creator desperately grasps for any kind of attention that may lead to a much-needed career boost.

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 2:09 PM

Racist comments aside, I agree with those who don't like Tyler. He's an obnoxious little snot-nosed punk-ass kid who deserves to get his ass beat and taken down a notch.

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 2:10 PM

Seriously.. I hope he gets his ass kicked severely one of these days. It might humble him.

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 2:14 PM

double negative

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 2:15 PM

YOU GUYS! He IS i jail! Read what he wrote! "Wasn't in no jail" is a double negative! He means he IS in jail!!

How can we help?

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 2:23 PM

We can help, if we stop hyping this guy up.

lies! don't believe anything tweeted

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 3:42 PM

You guys don't even know the back story why he did it. So how can you judge? Always jumping to conclusions you duck duck goose motherfuckers

Posted by Anonymous | December 23, 2011 3:53 PM

Whether or not he was justified in doing what he did still does not change the fact that he's an obnoxious snot-nosed punk-ass kid that needs to get his ass kicked.

Nothside kings throw a better punch the Tyler. That's for sure.

Hey 3:53 PM duck duck dipshit. Tyler the uncreative is an obnoxious attention seeking brat.
I bet the 15 year old has never said sorry for anything in his life saying everything that happens to him is everybody else's fault.

That these guys are famous and have fans shows just what kind of world we live in. A ridiculous cauldron of art that's includes stuff that's actually worthwhile but is also full of utter worthless shit that people mindbogglingly lavish praise onto.

How long is this kid going to be 19?

Every day there's a new reason to be glad you never joined the Odd Future bandwagon.
