Tyler, the Creator's long list of offensive exploits last left off when he made an ad depicting a goat that beats women in pursuit of Mountain Dew. Now, some brutal comments at a recent Australian show has united a right-wing politician and young feminists there in an attempt to get his visa revoked.
