GLAAD, the Creator

Posted by - 07:34 PM on 08/30/11
GLAAD is not a fan of Tyler, the Creator winning a VMA, noting that his Goblin release contains over 213 anti-gay slurs. They also vow to monitor his lyrics from this point forward. Thoughts?
Quote“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. 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.” - Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs

The kid directed his own video, wrote the song, and made the beat.

Thats more than any of the other's in his category did. So in that respect, I feel that he did deserve the Best New Artist VMA.

Also, he's said in multiple interviews he isn't homophobic. Syd the Kid is a lesbian...

This topic has been beaten to death.

I'm not comparing them on any musical level, merely that they both like to get a rise out of people for their enjoyment. Did Eminem not have a similar 'fight' with GLAAD in the early 2000s?

I'm more offended that these kids are getting praised for their shitty music than the fact that he is a homophobe.
