21-year-old University of Alabama student Jack Aaron Christensen is currently facing charges after writing lyrics from Tyler, The Creator’s “Radicals” on a library flip chart. Apparently, the rapper’s 2011 lyrics “kill people, burn shit, fuck school” were to be deemed a terroristic threat by prosecutors. Ironically, Tyler begins the track with, “Random disclaimer, Hey, don’t do anything that I say in this song, okay? It’s fucking fiction. If anything happens, don’t fucking blame me, White America. Fuck Bill O’Reilly.”
This isn’t the first time Tyler, The Creator has been linked to ideas of violence and terrorism. In 2015, the rapper was banned from the United Kingdom after its government deemed his lyrics incited hatred and provoked terrorist acts.
