GLAAD is mad at MTV and Tyler the Creator:

Posted: August 30, 2011 in Hip Hop

The Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), has issued a statement addressing Tyler the Creator’s recent win for Best New Artist at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

GLAAD says that MTV should be more responsible in educating viewers:

“Rather than providing simply a larger platform, MTV and other networks should educate viewers about why anti-gay and misogynistic language has no place in the music industry today,” said Senior Director of Programs, Herndon Graddick. “Given Tyler’s history of such remarks, viewers and potential sponsors should refrain from honoring homophobia and in the future look to a more deserving artist.”
