Tyler, The Creator Creates Anti-homophobia Merchandise

via Golf Wang Tumblr page

Tyler, The Creator, known for his heavy use of the word f****t, has released anti-homophobia merchandise on Thursday according to  Entertainment Weekly.

Tyler revealed the shirt design on the group’s Tumblr page Golf Wang. The shirt features a design that combines a white supremacist symbol with the rainbow colors for LGBT pride. Tyler’s other merchandise include sporting goods and footwear. Tyler’s inspiration for the design came from studying dictators and “the way that one man could control so many brains” as he explained on the Tumblr page.

What if a black guy wore this logo on a shirt? Would he be promoting self hate? Would he be taking the power out of a shape? What if a gay guy wore this on a shirt? Would he promoting Homophobia? Then BAM! I Had it. Throw a little rainbow in the logo and take a photo with a white guy in it and we have an amazing photo.

This might come as a surprise to some as Tyler’s “not the most inclusive and politically correct rapper out there” as said by Entertainment Weekly. Two of his earlier albums Bastard and Goblin referenced controversial and jarring topics such as rape, necrophilia, and misogyny. At the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival, protesters came to protest Odd Future, who were performing, and their lyrics. Tyler responded to the crowd with “to every protester supposedly here, to every organization, ever f****t ass who’s writing a review, I want you to suck my d**k”.

GLAAD also criticized MTV for nominating him as Best New Artist. However, despite all the criticism, Tyler explained his reason for designing the shirt.

Ever since my career started, I’ve been labeled as a homophobe, simply because of my use of the word f****t. Again, trying to take the power out of something, I WAS NEVER REFERRING TO SOMEONES SEXUAL PREFERENCE WHEN USING THAT WORD. I mean, I’m legit one of the least homophobic guys to walk this earth but, most people just read the surface.

Two of the members of Odd Future, Frank Ocean and Syd the Kid came out admitting to engaging in same-sex relationship, where Frank Ocean pinned an open letter discussing his sexuality on Tumblr back in 2012, Tyler voiced his support before the release of Ocean’s Channel Orange.
