Tyler, the Creator Doesn't Seem Too Upset His Mountain Dew Ad Got Pulled Amid Complaints of Racism


(Getty Images)It didn't take long for Mountain Dew to pull its most recent ad, a surreal clip featuring a rude, violent goat, amid complaints of both racism and sexism. The clip, the third in a series directed by Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator, saw the goat threatening a woman from an all-black police lineup, growling "You better not snitch on a player ...

Yeah, none of it makes such sense, except maybe to stoners. They do tend to appreciate the absurd.

Tyler has yet to comment on the controversy, but he did tweet quite a bit as it went down. The more interesting and less profane posts include:
