Woman reports Tyler, the Creator to police after Sydney stage tirade

A woman who claims she was verbally abused on stage by an American rapper in Sydney on Thursday evening has reported the incident to police.
Talitha Stone, a 24-year-old blogger and campaigner, says she felt “petrified” following “terrifying and disturbing” abuse which she says was levelled at her by US rapper Tyler, the Creator.
Stone, who is a member of the online feminist activist group Collective Shout, had previously been part of a social media campaign to have the rapper banned from Australia. She had received a slew of abuse including rape threats on Twitter after the rapper, who has 1.7 million followers on the microblogging site, retweeted one of her posts, which said: “have to visit @Culturekings tomoz to protest against @fucktyler he will be there at midday. I think they need educating on #misogyny.”
The all-ages gig at the Enmore theatre in Newtown, Sydney saw the rapper launch an expletive-ridden tirade. Stone had attended the gig to collect evidence of misogynistic behaviour following the tweet. It is not known if the rapper was aware Stone was in the audience.
He said: “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.”
Stone recorded the abuse and uploaded the video to YouTube.
“My heart was absolutely pounding as I heard him start to mention me,” she told Guardian Australia.
“I was petrified. I was standing among the crowd of people who were chanting along with threats towards me.”
Both the Enmore theatre and Frontline Touring, the rapper’s Australian tour promoters, declined to comment on the incident.
A spokeswoman for New South Wales police said they were investigating the matter.

US hip-hop singer who raps about rape and murdering women granted visa by Federal Government

Tyler, the Creator, a US hip-hop singer who raps about raping and murdering women has been granted a visa by the Federal Government and will perform at an all-ages show in Brisbane at the weekend.

A controversial US hip-hop singer who raps about rape, murdering women, and dismembering their bodies has been granted a visa by the Federal Government.
The rapper's lyrics include descriptions of a woman being murdered in a basement and subjected to sexual abuse after death, as well as descriptions of cannibalism of female body parts.
Dubbed Tyler, the Creator, he was due to hold his first show last night in Perth before performing at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney tomorrow, the Palace Theatre in Melbourne on Friday and in Brisbane on Saturday.
The Earlwolf event, which also includes Earl Sweatshirt is for adults only in Perth and Melbourne, but the Eatons Hill venue north Brisbane allows children.
He was granted a visa for performers, drawing calls from an Opposition MP for Prime Minister Julia Gillard to cancel his right to work in Australia.
Ms Gillard last year vowed to call out misogyny when she saw it after she labelled Opposition Leader Tony Abbott a misogynist, and Liberal MP Alex Hawke called for her to apply the same standard to Tyler, the Creator.
"Allowing this man a visa to promote his misogyny to audiences, including children, is a complete disgrace and an absolute insult to all of us and to women in particular," Mr Hawke said.
Immigration Minister Brendan O'Connor's office confirmed he did not seek to intervene in his department's decision to grant Tyler, the Creator a visa.
He did not seek to apply a character test to the visa application.
"The Minister does not agree with the offensive lyrics of this rapper," Mr O'Connor's spokeswoman said.
"It is a condition of his visa that he must respect Australian law and not cause or threaten harm to individuals or the community, and that any such conduct may result in him having his visa cancelled."
Melinda Liszewski from Collective Shout, an organisation that works against the sexualisation of women, said Brisbane was "still raw" after the recent killing of Logan woman Joan Ryther: "I think many parents would be dropping their children to this event unaware that Tyler, the Creator's songs contain lyrics like Rape a pregnant b.... and tell my friends I had a threesome. You got a f...ing death wish, I'm a genie it'll get done."
Ian Dalton from the Australian Parents Council said parents should talk to their children if they were worried about the rapper.
"Parents would be concerned about it," he said.
The promoter did not respond to inquiries yesterday.
