Tyler, the Creator Arrested at SXSW
The Odd Future star was performing a solo show at the Scoot Inn when he noticed hundreds of fans outside the venue who couldn’t make it inside the show. According to reports, he told the crowd to break down the barricades, shouting and leading a chant of “Push! Push! Push!”
The audience indeed pushed, and hundreds of fans broke into the venue. Not the smartest move just hours after another SXSW tragedy that left two people dead and two dozen injured after another security gates were slammed into by a drunken driver.
According to TMZ, Tyler was arrested this afternoon at a Texas airport for inciting a riot. You can see video of Thursday’s incident above. The rapper is apparently still in custody on a $3,500 bond.
