Sunday night was a strange one for Drake, who was booed off stage in Los Angeles after appearing as a special guest at Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw. Drake appeared as a surprise guest during a "Tyler and friends"-style set but appeared to dissapoint some fans, who had been expecting Frank Ocean. Rumors online had circulated that Ocean would make a rare appearance at the festival, though nothing official was ever released to stoke those rumors.
On Monday afternoon Tyler took to Twitter to call out some of those at the festival that booed Drake and shouted "No!" when the Canadian rapper asked the audience if they wanted to hear more from him. While Tyler conceded that it may have been "tone deaf" to book Drake for the festival, he was critical of people that "acted out like assholes" and made him look "entitled and trash" in front of his peers. He thanked Drake for performing and compared the situation to both cancel culture and mob mentality. Check out the tweets below.
