He managed to spark a debate among fans with his comments.
A follower said: ‘He’s so articulate and very well-spoken 💙’ and someone else posted this: ‘Exactly! The Grammy thought they were slick giving all these “awards” to black artists under the rap category. #byefelicia.’
One fan seems to hate the Grammys and said: ‘The Grammys need to be canceled period,’ and another follower posted: ‘I understand what he is saying he has a point but you are basically saying he shouldn’t have won if it wasn’t a rap album.’
An Instagrammer posted: ‘he spoke nothing but facts but it’ll all be lost in the ignorance we live in today😒’ and someone else said: ‘He is absolutely correct though his music is not Rap!!!’
A follower posted this: ‘When they call his art urban and put him in the urban category and not rap/pop,’ and someone else wrote: ‘STOP Begging For Awards And Acknowledgement From Those Who Want YOU To Go Away!!!’
One person told Tyler that ‘Your album won because it was easy for white people to digest. Period.’
One person hopped in the comments and had this to say: ‘The Grammys know what they doing they not slick they don’t select those based off what they like they select those based off people imagine, we are “public enemy” to them.’
One other follower posted this: ‘He’s not wrong! This is exactly how a lot of us! I’m not taking away from his talent cuz boy is a visionary God in the making but like he said…it’s not rap!’
