In what seemed to be an ordinary, innocuous post on the subreddit OFWGKTA, one frustrated fan wrote in their recent disapproval of Tyler, The Creator and the recent arc to his career. However, the post didn't go unnoticed by Tyler, who fought back with his own long response.

In the original post, the user (cokomok) says, "Used to love the guy, was a huge fan of him/OF for 3 years."

"After the sort of disappointment of Cherry Bomb, (I only liked 5 songs, realized most of the lyrics are either bragging or no substance) I think I've realized I've outgrown Tyler as a whole."

They continued, saying, "Yes, I know he's happy now and that's great. But he's gotta realize many of the old fans aren't big on this new stuff. And being happy doesn't = saying you're happy all the time. It means making great stuff. Some of which he's done. But for the most part, I'm over it."

Tyler wrote back in great detail, much to the surprise of everyone. He writes:

"why cant i share my joy with the world? ohhh, it was cool when i was raping girls and telling you how sad i was on records, but when shit changes and im feeling great and i fuck with myself you cant deal with it? cause you cant relate? is that why? or maybe its my ego talking. idk know what it is, but after a while you realize you dont want to be around people who isnt positive, who isnt focused who dont want more. why would you want to be around someone is is a downer?"

"and i dont even mean depressed, i mean niggas who is always just fucking everyones mood up? everytime they talk its something negative? am i wrong cause i dont want that in my life? its crazy, all im doing is spreading good vibes and tryna give some confidence to people and at least telling them they can accoplish something. sometimes giving some people some hope can really push people to be great."
