What Tyler, the Creator thought was giving his fans the night of their lives this past weekend turned out to be a huge flop. His Camp Flog Gnaw annual music festival in LA didn't give fans the surprise they wanted and the artists had to deal with the unnecessary backlash. Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Concert had the artist clapping back at fans all day on Twitter.
Drake stepped out onto the Flog Gnaw stage last night prepared to give his twenty-minute set his all but the audience just wasn't having it. After feeling the tension in the room, Drake addressed the unimpressed rowdiness and in the end, was booed off the stage.
Ticket holders were expecting Frank Ocean as their special guest, deciding to act out when they weren't given "the right" surprise.
Tyler, The Creator addressed his fans on Twitter today and was far from happy.
He started off by explaining that he "thought bringing one of the biggest artists on the f*cking planet to a music festival was fire! But Flipside, A Lil tone-deaf knowing the specific crowd it drew. Some created a narrative in their head and acted out like assholes when it didn't come true and I don't f*ck with that."

He wasn't even close to being done after the first tweet. He went on to explain just exactly what happened at the venue.
"Also, mostly everyone was having a great time, those shits in the front area were the ones being mad rude, which, I can see why...yall represented me and Flog to my guest and made us look sooo entitled and trash."

He tried to end his rant on a humorous note to try and make some light of the situation saying, "Again, thank you Drake! (I'm f*cking pissed Hotline Bling was next that's my f*cking shit I'm gonna play that in the shower right now)."
AGAIN, THANK YOU DRAKE! ( IM FUCKING PISSED HOTLINE BLING WAS NEXT THATS MY FUCKING SHIT IM GONNA PLAY THAT IN THE SHOWER RIGHT NOW) <3— Tyler, The Creator (@Tyler, The Creator)1573494703.0
If his words don't tell you how angry he was, he wrote every single tweet in capital letters.
Drake himself hasn't responded but DJ Akademiks let the Twitterverse know that,
"Drake is taking it in stride tho... he told me personally regarding the Camp Flog Gnaw performance it's a 'moment of humility which is always welcomed.' He also added "was just not my night. Wasn't who they wanted to see.""

It's pretty safe to say that all performers involved in the festival last night weren't pleased with the way the crowd responded.
At the end of the day, all they're asking for is respect, something everyone should have.
Hopefully next year Camp Flog Gnaw goes a whole lot smoother.
