Gay/Lesbian rights organization GLAAD has announced they will be monitoring the lyrics of Odd Future Wolfgang k!ll Them All's lead rapper, Tyler the Creator.

GLAAD issued a statement siding with Sara Quin of indie rock band Tegan and Sara, who recently wrote an open letter criticizing Tyler's lyrics, which she labeled homophobic and misogynistic.

"No genre is without its controversial and offensive characters- Iím not naive," Sara Quin wrote. "Iíve asked myself a thousand times why this is pushing me over the edge. Maybe itís the access to him (his grotesque twitter, etc). Maybe itís because Iím a human being, both a girl and a lesbian. Maybe itís because my mom has spent her whole adult life working with teenage girls who were victims of s3xual a.ssault. Maybe itís because in this case I donít think race or class actually has anything to do with his hateful message but has EVERYTHING to do with why everyone refuses to admonish him for that message."

Quin said that Tyler frequently hides behind his age and that his lyrics were "repulsive and irresponsible."

She also chastised critics and media for glorifying Tyler and his new album Goblin, which is currently #5 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart.

"If any of the bands whose records are held in similar esteem as Goblin had lyrics littered with r*pe fantasies and slurs, would they be labeled hate mongers?

A rep for GLAAD said on their blog they would be monitoring Tyler the Creator's lyrics more closely.

"We commend Sara Quin for speaking out publicly against Tylerís lyrics and hope others will follow in her steps," GLAAD said in a statement. "GLAAD will continue to monitor media coverage of Tyler."

I think GLAAD is just mad that they've found someone who is a bigger attention wh0ore than them. If they think his lyrics are repulsive, god forbid if they ever hear a real horrorcore rappers lyrics, they'd prolly full on sh*t themselves.

It's all starting to come together. Been saying 2011 is the rise and fall of OF. The stars are aligning and OF about to get blackballed from mainstream, Goblin 2 doing 12k tops.





Lil B is aligning himself with hiphop icons and getting the support from GLAAD, getting videos played on MTV and touring in the USA without having to have bottles thrown at him. And people really thought OF were anything more than shock rap

uh oh, theyre going to ruin him like they did with eminem........


in all seriousness though they better make sure all the black glaad members are spearheading the initiative because if its a bunch of angry middle aged white gay people trying to keep a black teenager down the narrative will change no matter what anyone's intentions are.
