The producer’s comments have sparked controversy online.

Flying Lotus has been hit with criticism after making sexual remarks about Hillary Clinton at a show on Friday night (September 16).

FlyLo was performing at the Fox Theater in Oakland—a warm-up for Brainfeeder’s Hollywood Bowl show the following night—when he began talking about his dislike for Trump and brought up Hillary Clinton. “I couldn’t possibly vote for a woman who doesn’t give an awesome blowjob,” he said, namechecking Clinton while appearing to reference the Monica Lewinsky/Bill Clinton sex scandal of 1998.

The producer quickly added: “I’m just kidding, I’m going to vote for her ass anyway. No lie,” but the damage had already been done, with some audience members walking out of the concert.

FlyLo defended his comments via Twitter the following morning: “The more PC and scared everyone gets, the more I love having a microphone to say some depraved shit u need to hear,” he wrote.

On Saturday night, he referenced Clinton again during his Hollywood Bowl show: “Shouts out to Hillary, my boo,” he said.

In June, Flying Lotus came under fire for calling rappers who “take advantage” of producers “rape artists”. “To producers,” he wrote on Twitter. “When a rapper invites u to the studio and asks u to make beats on the spot. Tell them to pay your fee on the spot, cuz fuck that. “Hella rap artists are rape artists. Taking advantage of abilities thinking its a good look for us! Most my people behind the scenes is broke.”
