Celebrities Visit SiriusXM Studios - February 26, 2013


In an attempt to bring their unconventional talents across the globe, Tyler, The Creator and his crew Odd Future travelled to New Zealand for an open-air concert with headline act, Eminem. Their journey to the city of Wellington was, unfortunately, short-lived when immigration authorities denied their entrance in the country because they “pose as a threat to public order.”

Border Operations Manager Karen Urwin said authorities decided to decline visas to six group members after becoming aware of a 2011 incident in Boston in which some witnesses claimed group members encouraged fans to attack police officers.

Tyler, The Creator vented his frustration on Twitter when he tweeted “They said we were ‘terrorist threats and bad for the society’ or whatever. Sick.They are anti GOLF” He later tweeted, “I love NZ tho.”
