New Zealand Bans Odd Future



It appears Tyler, the Creator and Odd Future’s rambunctious antics have finally caught up with them. The group was banned from entering New Zealand this week because they “pose a threat to public order.”

Odd Future was set to perform at a concert this weekend alongside headliner, Eminem.

Border Operations Manager Karen Urwin said authorities decided to decline the group’s visas because of a 2011 incident in Boston. “It’s not a decision we take lightly and not one that happens often,” Urwin said. The rappers allegedly urged fans to attack police officers during an incident at a comic bookstore.

Tyler, The Creator took to Twitter on Thursday to share his thoughts on being banned:

“They said we were ‘terrorist threats and bad for the society’ or whatever. Sick,” he wrote. He later tweeted, “I love NZ tho.”

According to the AP, a move is underway in Australia to have the group banned from entering that country as well.
