Tyler the Creator says he is banned from Australia. And now his fans are going after the women's rights group and its leader who him barred from entering the country.

Tyler the Creator tweeted to his followers that Coralie Alison, the Director of Operations at Collective Shout, had managed to convince the Australian government to deny Tyler a visa due to his lyrics and other words that glorify violence against women.

Once his announcement was posted, fans of Mr. the Creator launched an amazingly horrid tirade of filth and violence against Coralie Alison, which has only gone to prove her point that Tyler incites violence against women.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection in Australia denied that Tyler the Creator -- whose real name is Tyler Okonma -- had been banned yet, but it was considering it.

"The Department can confirm that Mr Okonma has a current visa application with the Department, and that no decision has yet been made," a spokesperson said.

As for the reasons Tyler could be denied, they also expounded upon that.

"The Australian Government supports freedom of speech," the rep said. "However, the exercise of this freedom involves a responsibility to avoid vilification of, inciting discord in, or representing a danger to, the Australian community, In cases where a person is assessed as representing a risk that they may vilify or incite discord, or otherwise represent a danger to the Australian community, a person may be refused a visa."

Collective Shout had fought against allowing Tyler the Creator into Australia in the past, presenting evidence that he does indeed "vilify or incite discord."

Here is a piece of the material they sent to the Australian government.

Tyler the Creator has received widespread media attention over the span of his career for misogynistic hate speech against women, as well as homophobia. He is renowned for his songs advocating rape and extreme violence against women, including murder, genital mutilation, stuffing them into car boots, trapping them in his basement, raping their corpses and burying their bodies.

A characteristic feature of his songs is retribution against women who he perceives have wronged him. For example, he sings about strangling and chopping up women who reject his sexual advances and raping their corpses.

"Raquel treat me like my father like a f*ckin' stranger, She still don't know I made Sarah to strangle her, Not put her in danger and chop her up in the back of a Wrangler, All because she said no to homecoming.'"

“You'll be down in earth quicker if you diss me tonight, I just wanna drag your lifeless body to the forest, And fornicate with it but that’s because I’m in love with you…c*nt.”

Other lyrics include:

"F*ck Mary in her ass.. ha-ha.. yo, I tell her it's my house, give her a tour, In my basement, and keep that bitch locked up in my storage, Rape her and record it, then edit it with more sh*t”

"You already know you're dead, Ironic cause your lipstick is red, of course, I stuff you in the trunk”

"You call this sh*t rape but I think that rape's fun, I just got one request, stop breathin"

"I wanna tie her body up and throw her in my basement, Keep her there, so nobody can wonder where her face went, (Tyler, what you doin'?) Shut the f*ck up, You gon' f*ckin' love me bitch, Sh*t, I don't give a f*ck, your family lookin' for you, wish 'em good luck, Bitch, you tried to play me like a dummy, Now you stuck up in my motherf*ckin' basement all bloody, And I'm f*ckin' your dead body, your coochie all cummy, Lookin' in your dead eyes, what the f*ck you want from me?”

The messages propogated in these lyrics pose particular risk to the Australian community by conveying the message that interpersonal conflict might be legitimately resolved through violence. Unfortunately this message still enjoys resonance in significant parts of our society which heightens the risk posed to women and children of his entry.

We draw your attention to a previous Collective Shout campaign in June 2013 calling on the former Minister to revoke Tyler’s visa. As a result of our actions, Talitha Stone, a young activist who led our campaign, was subjected to multiple rape and death threats from Tyler’s fans, with the artist himself inciting violence against her on twitter and at his Sydney (all-ages) concert, where a young woman was also raped.

Tyler's followers went ballistic.

This is the lighter stuff. The larger response has led to a backlash against Tyler and of support for Coralie Alison.
