Odd Future rapper won’t be going Down Under in September.

Doubt was cast over Tyler, the Creator’s Australian tour last month when the outspoken rapper claimed he was banned from the country after receiving backlash from feminist groups.

On Monday, promoter Frontier Touring released a statement confirming Tyler’s national tour was cancelled.

“We would much rather come to Australia when it isn’t surrounded in controversy. I love my fans there and hopefully I’ll be back soon. Don’t do drugs,” Tyler told fans in a brief statement.

Feminist organisation Collective Shout led an effort to revoke Tyler’s visa, claiming his lyrics promoted misogyny and violence against women. The rapper then responded to the claims by calling campaign organiser Talitha Stone a “cunt” and “fucking whore” at a show while she was in attendance.

Tyler was set to play Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth next month. He’ll join A$AP Rocky on a US tour in September and October.
