Bring Me the Horizon singer Oli Sykes has experienced his fair share of controversy throughout the years, but by far, one of his more surreal controversial moments involves pissing off rapper Tyler, the Creator.

Back in 2013, Tyler took to Twitter and posted a tweet shit talking the Bring Me the Horizon frontman, and eventually, Sykes responded back to him. As to the reason why Tyler was so angry with Sykes – that had to do with a t-shirt the BMTH singer was selling.

As reported by Metal Injection, Sykes modeled a shirt that was part of his fashion line Drop Dead Clothing that featured the following text on it: “Kill People Burn Shit Skip School”

When Tyler came across this shirt, he got super pissed.

What got Tyler so upset about this shirt is that the text on it is very similar to the lyrics found in his song “Radicals.” Those specific lyrics are: “kill people burn shit fuck school”

Upon seeing Sykes’s shirt, Tyler took to Twitter and wrote the following about the Bring Me the Horizon frontman: “THAT KID WITH RADICAL LYRICS ON HIS SHIRT IS SOME TUMBLR FAG FUCK HIM DONT USE MY SHIT PUSSY”

Sykes eventually came across Tyler’s criticism and retweeted the rapper, writing the following (Sykes’s post has since been deleted, the following was shared via The PRP):

“I just thought skip school had more charm to it. You could try watchdogs but I think they have bigger fish to fry

“Who gives a shit. Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I’ve ever known & everything I have ever seen.”

With Sykes’s tweet having since been deleted, it appears the beef between the two artists fizzled out relatively quickly. What do you make of Tyler, the Creator calling out Bring Me the Horizon’s Oli Sykes for the latter’s “Kill People Burn Shit Skip School” shirt?
