Frontier Touring shared the news in a Facebook post uploaded on August 9.
“We would much rather come to Australia when it isn’t surrounded in controversy. I love my fans there and hopefully I’ll be back soon. Don’t do drugs,” Tyler, The Creator said in a statement to Frontier Touring.
The cancelation comes shortly after the women’s rights group, Collective Shout created a petition calling for a ban of the Odd Future musician from the country.
“We believe he’s in breach of his visa conditions, which state very clearly that you cannot come here and propagate, vilify or incite discord in the Australian community,” Collective Shout co-founder Melinda Tankard Reist said during a past interview with 3AW.
Tyler, The Creator began his feud with Collective Shout as early as 2013. During a concert in the summer of 2013, the rapper lashed out at a Collective Shout member during a show in Sydney, Australia.
“Fuckin bitch, I hope she hear me call her a bitch too. Fuckin whore. Aye this fuckin song is dedicated to you, you fuckin cunt,” Tyler reportedly said during his performance.
