Earlier this morning Tyler, The Creator got his Instagram account taken down for reasons so far unknown. RIP @feliciathegoat. He took to Twitter — a platform he hasn't been banned from — to let out his anger and exercise his right to free speech.

He maintains that he doesn't know what user-agreement term he violated which could have caused his account to be deleted, and opens up a discussion about censorship.

This in turn leads him to launch into a critique on society and the downfalls of an overly politically correct culture.

He then ties his thoughts on homosexuality into the argument. 

He goes on to elaborate about the group mentality of his generation.

Next, he talks about how this homogenisation effects the music industry.

Tyler briefly touches on the internet and its impact on celebrity culture.

He then suggests that he will actively subvert mainstream pop culture.

Tyler concludes by saying that his other Instagram account got deleted too.
