Tyler, The Creator On HuffPo Live

A constant stream of celebrities stop by the Buzzfeed offices all the time, and today that stream included Tyler, The Creator and assorted Odd Future cronies in town to promote Loiter Squad. As Gawker points out, that visit did not go well. Below, behold a flurry of tweets from Buzzfeed staffers about Tyler’s day terrorizing their office.

I mean, Tyler did tell us he was a bastard pretty much from the start.

UPDATE: Tyler tweeted about his visit…

…then dropped by HuffPost Live with Odd Future to talk about it:

Half the people didn’t like me … I guess some of the people who work in the office [were like], ’I’m above this, oh my god, we’re working, we have strong opinions,’ … We just came in there trying to bring in so much yellow freaking filling to their gray, boring lives … Dude, you have a Nerf gun in the office. How do you have a Nerf gun in there if you don’t want anybody messing with it?

You can watch that discussion below.

And here was a segment where they were prompted to give opinions on Solange, Michael Sam, Justin Bieber, and Pharrell.

  1. oooooh that last one stinggssssssssssss

  2. Tyler giving Buzzfeed roughly the amount of respect they deserve. The racial slurs aren’t cool though.

  3. every generation gets the fred durst they deserve

    • James Gordon Jr.: Tyler? Tyler! Why’s he running dad?
      Lt. James Gordon: Because we have to chase him.
      Cop: Okay we’re going in! Go, go! Move!
      James Gordon Jr.: He didn’t do anything wrong.
      Lt. James Gordon: Because he’s the hero Buzzfeed deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. Our Fred Durst.

  4. Sounds like these people need to lighten up. But I guess it does get tiring trying to figure out the next eye-popping headline to attract 45-year old mom’s on Facebook.

  5. This is like in the early 2000s, when Eminem was messing with boy bands; you don’t know who to root for.

  6. OF are hilarious :)

  7. Is this the only way a washed up rapper can make headlines these days?

  8. Can’t wait for the Buzzfeed poll about this.

  9. The title of this should’ve been given the usual Buzzfeed treatment. “9 Tweets About Tyler, the Creator That Buzzfeed Employees Will Understand.”

  10. Kind of a dick assume everyone there was living grey, boring lives. Maybe that’s why a dude with a Nerf gun wasn’t that exciting.

    • Did you watch the Batman video? The predominantly Caucasian workforce pretty much just sat in front of their giant Mac displays like zombies. Their tweets wouldn’t even be exciting without Tyler running around the place. No wonder they invite people into the offices. OWWWOOOOOOOO!

  11. Tyler + Odd Future running around Buzzfeed like jerks just sounds so like them. Sounds like it was some undercover Loiter Squad prank.

  12. The amount of people working in that office was way more than I expected, given the quality of buzzfeed. Maybe they’re going for the “monkeys in a room with typewriters” concept. They’ll have to churn out a good article eventually, right?

    So far it isn’t working.

    • I thought that was strange too. What do those people do all day? Such a massive workforce (not including freelancers and other off-site writers I’m sure) for lists of fucking cat pictures?

      • Kind of lends credence to the idea that buzzfeed isn’t just unintentionally mindless bullshit targeted at college kids, but the content is painstakingly processed and edited to be that way. Still a ton of people though.

      • chasing advertising, probably.

  13. Wait, did I do this wrong, I read all those tweets and then it told me I’m earl sweatshirt and I should live in portland?

  14. But what does RUBJON think about all of this?

  15. So that first tweet is proof that Cyril Figgis is a real person and he works at Buzzfeed.

  16. I would like to spend a day or two with Tyler and the OF crew. If only for the fact that I don’t feel like I can relate to him AT ALL. I would like to understand him, right now I really don’t like him.

  17. He seems to think that repeatedly tweeting that he is smarter than everyone else makes it true. Smart people don’t act like fucking idiots, Tyler.

  18. I lost it when Earl said: IT’S A FUCKING NERF GUN BRO! THAT MEANS YOU SIGNED UP FOR FUN BRO!

  19. I don’t think of myself as a cruel individual, but if I was granted the privilege to punish buzzfeed writers for consistently polluting the internet with nauseatingly shallow clickbait, this is how I would do it.

  20. It seems like the guy interviewing them was waiting for their responses and then just agreeing with them.

  21. Honestly I think it would have been funny. “oh god tyler spent a single day harassing the office” A single day.

    We got 90 years approx. stop wasting it worrying about twenty four hours that somebody was being playful. Damn we focus on silly things lol.
