Tyler, the Creator can't help it. He's a veritable magnet for controversy. His latest ad spot for Mountain Dew was yanked by PepsiCo for supposedly depicting racial stereotypes and "making light of violence against women." There was also a talking goat in there somewhere. The company apologized, but unsurprisingly, Tyler's standing firm behind his ad's artistic vision. The hell-raising rapper fronts Odd Future, a hip hop collective from California that's been accused of just about everything under the sun, from propogating homophobia and misogyny in their lyrics to instigating actual violence. And he's popular. Very popular. He appears with Big Boi, his Odd Future-mate Earl Sweatshirt, and many more. Expect a crowd.
