Previously the group had campaigned to end the rapper’s tour of Australia, and to have him deported, and appealed to the Australian Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Brendan O’Connor, to revoke his visa.
The 24-year-old blogger, along with Collective Shout, cited Australian government rules against visitors who produce songs of “graphic descriptions of rape and violence against women.”
Stone tweeted about the rapper, “Have to visit @Culturekings tomoz to protest against @fucktyler he will be there at midday. I think they need educating on #misogyny.” He retweeted her post, and she then received numerous threats from his followers.
Perhaps against her better judgement, Stone decided to attend Tyler, The Creator’s all-ages concert at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on 6 June.
The rapper abused her from the stage, unaware that she was in the audience. She responded with a column in the Guardian Newspaper:
“Another rapper on stage said: “you really didn’t like her did you Tyler?” To which he replied: “No, the f—ing whore. This is the second time they’ve tried to get me kicked out of Australia. I’m still in Australia, you f—ing whore”. He also said he hoped my children “get some messed up STDs”. At his incitement of violence towards me, the crowd went wild, cheering and pumping their fists. The underaged fans – of which there were many – were groomed into mini “Tyler” behaviour. Rape is funny!”
Stone reported Tyler, the Creator to Australian police. Tour promoters Frontline Touring and the Enmore Theatre itself both declined to comment on the incident, while a spokesperson for New South Wales police have confirmed they are investigating the complaint.
