Tyler, The Creator has argued that listeners should not be offended by his use of the word "f*ggot" in his music.
Talking to MTV News
, the Odd Future leader claimed that even his gay fans are not bothered by the derogatory term and confessed that he doesn't care what people think of his approach to music.
"Well, I have gay fans and they don't really take it offensive, so I don't know. If it offends you, it offends you," Tyler explained.
"If you call me a n***a, I really don't care, but that's just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don't give a s**t."
