Last month, Tyler The Creator was banned from Australia.

Tyler's world just got a little smaller today with word he's also been forbidden to enter  the United Kingdom.

A few days ago, the 24-year old had cancelled tour dates in the British Isles at the last minute and now we know why.

Tyler's manager Christian Clancy elaborated on Tumblr:

Tyler has been banned from entering the UK for somewhere between 3 to 5 years per a letter from the secretary of state for the home department of the united kingdom," Clancy wrote. "the letter specifically cites lyrics he wrote 6-7 years ago for his albums bastard and goblin—the type of lyrics he hasn’t written since… highlights from the letter include that his work 'encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality' and 'fosters hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.'"
This won't affect Tyler's upcoming tour with A$AP Rocky, which is only going down in the good-ol' free speech-loving U.S.A.
