Tumblr and the Fox Theater brought this LA gansta rapper to Boulder and since 6:30 pm 30 to 100 cops have been trying to corral stoned and drunk punks who follow Tyler. Tumblr and the Fox better pay for this mess. Hip hop night and Rap artists never go over very well at the Fox. They bring with them guns, inner city thugs, crime and all kinds of trouble… every single time. Shame on The Fox and Shame on Tumblr.
Below is a Wikipedia description of the HATE spewed by Tyler..From Wikipedia
Tyler has been criticized for his use of homophobic slurs, in particular, his frequent use of the epithet faggot in his lyrics and on Twitter. He has denied accusations of homophobia, stating, “I’m not homophobic. I just say faggot and use gay as an adjective to describe stupid shit,” and, “I’m not homophobic. I just think faggot hits and hurts people.” However, he later said in an interview with MTV about the slurs, “Well, I have gay fans and they don’t really take it offensive, so I don’t know. If it offends you, it offends you. If you call me a nigga, I really don’t care, but that’s just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don’t give a shit.”

Tyler has also been criticized for his graphic depictions of violence against women and his misogynistic lyrics. Brent DiCrescenzo of Time Out Chicago writes that rape is a “predominant theme” of Goblin and Hermione Hoby of The Guardian writes that Tyler’s “rape and murder fantasies (are) graphic enough to send the vomit rising along with the bile.” The Fader tallied 68 uses of the term “bitch” over Goblin’s 73 minutes. Responding to Canadian indie pop duo Tegan and Sara’s criticism of his lyrics, Tyler tweeted: “If Tegan and Sara need some hard dick, hit me up!”
On December 22, 2011, Tyler was arrested during a show at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, and charged with “suspicion of vandalism” for alleged destroying of sound equipment belonging to the venue. He was released on $20,000 bail.
In the song “Yonkers,” Tyler disses numerous artists, such as rappers/singers B.o.B and Bruno Mars, and Hayley Williams, frontwoman of band Paramore. Tyler, the Creator also disses Bruno Mars in The Game’s song “Martians vs. Goblins,” in which he and Lil Wayne are featured artists. In response, B.o.B released a similar diss track, entitled “No Future” that also references Tyler’s group, Odd Future. Ironically, Tyler praised the song, and initially did not think it was a diss track. Bruno Mars, in response to the verse “stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus,” said, “[Tyler] has to wait in line if he wants to stab me…[Tyler's] definitely not the first guy that’s said something like that to me and he’s not going to be the last.” Los Angeles rapper Hopsin also dissed him in his “Ill Mind of Hopsin 4″ music video, released in July 2011. As a response, he was parodied in the “Martians vs. Goblins” music video.
Tyler, The Creator and R&B singer Chris Brown feuded due to claims Brown tweeted on Twitter of Odd Future’s music containing a “demonic” message. Tyler had made several sarcastic remarks via Twitter afterwards, leading to a heated feud between the two musicians. Before a live performance alongside Frank Ocean, Tyler, The Creator called out Chris Brown referring to Brown’s savage beating of fellow musician Rihanna. Afterwards, Brown and Tyler cleared up the feud when Tyler tweeted that he is a fan of Chris Brown’s song “Look At Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. According to Tyler, The Creator there are things “[his fans] don’t even know” about the feud.
Tyler has also feuded with former collaborator Brandun DeShay. Prior to SXSW 2011, DeShay confronted Tyler through Formspring and said that he was going to “settle this” at SXSW. Tyler has since told fans that the only song they ever collaborated on was “Session”, from Tyler’s debut album Bastard. Tyler re-released the album one year after its initial release, replacing Brandun DeShay’s verse with a new one by Mike G. Tyler has since said that any other song performed by the two of them were created by DeShay, and that he recorded verses over Tyler’s songs without his permission. According to Tyler, DeShay hit him at one point. Tyler also disses DeShay in his song “Yonkers”, by bragging about his own success and publicity.
Through Formspring, Tyler has also said that he does not like Vince Staples, although he praised his rapping abilities. Vince has collaborated with several members of Odd Future, notably Earl Sweatshirt, Mike G, Domo Genesis & The Jet Age of Tomorrow. In 2011, Tyler said that he does not dislike Vince, but he dislikes the fact that people think he is a part of Odd Future when he is not actually in the group.“
