Avid Gaytime enthusiast, Tyler, The Creator, is reportedly the subject of two NSW Police investigations following multiple accusations of abuse, most notably from a 24-year-old Sydney-based feminist activist who claims she was the subject of a #misogynistic tirade at the former’s concert at The Enmore on Thursday.
According to The Guardian, Collective Shout activist and blogger Talitha Stone was subject to “an onslaught of threats” following Tyler’s ‘retweeting of a tweet’ announcing her intentions to protest Wednesday’s shut-down in-store appearance.

Stone then attended Thursday evening’s all-ages performance in Newtown to “collect evidence” in support of Collective Shout’s campaign to have Tyler’s visa revoked under the Controversial Visa Applicants law for inciting discord, villfying or representing a danger to a segment of the Australian community.
Stone describes her experience as thus:
“A few songs in, Tyler told his fans that ‘some bitch was trying to get him kicked out of the country’, followed by one of two songs he dedicated to me. This one was titled Bitch Suck Dick, which contains the lyrics ‘You dead bitch, I’m hot as fuck … Punch a bitch in her mouth just for talkin’ shit’.
He also said these things: ‘Fucking bitch, I wish she could hear me call her a bitch, too, fucking whore. Yeah, I got a sold-out show right now bitch. Hey this fucking song is dedicated to you, you fucking cunt.’
Another rapper on stage said: ‘You really didn’t like her did you Tyler?’ To which he replied: ‘No, the fucking whore. This is the second time they’ve tried to get me kicked out of Australia. I’m still in Australia you fucking whore.’ He also said he hoped my children ‘get some messed up STDs.'”
Tweeted Tyler after Thursday’s show:
FUCK THAT SHOW WAS THE BEST FUCK

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, NSW Police have now confirmed they are investigating a second incident of abuse (“believed to be a sexual assault”) which occurred at the same concert, though comment has not been made confirming the nature of the incident.
Tyler and Earl Sweatshirt’s Earlwolf all-ages tour continues tonight at Brisbane’s Eaton Hills Hotel.
“I’m not going to stop fighting against it,” said Stone ahead of the tour’s final performance.
