Rapper and former member of Odd Future, Tyler, the creator, has announced on Facebook this week he will be cancelling his tours down under.

This comes after feminist group, Collective Shout, petitioned for his extradition after verbally abusing a member of a crowd in his 2013 Sydney show.

But is Collective Shout responsible for what Australian’s can and can’t listen to? And what is the correlation between an artist and their work?
