Alabama College Student Charged With Making Terroristic Threat After Quoting Tyler, The Creator Lyrics
The lyrics came from the rapper’s 2011 Goblin song “Radicals.”
A University of Southern Alabama student has been accused of making a terroristic threat after he wrote song lyrics by Tyler, the Creator on a large flip chart in the school library.
According to the Associated Press, 21-year-old Jack Aaron Christensen allegedly wrote the lyrics on the flip chart “on or around” September 11. Christensen was arrested that day, according to a separate report from Pitchfork. The lyrics Christensen quoted were from Tyler’s 2011 Goblin song “Radicals,” specifically the lines: “Kill People, Burn Shit, Fuck School.”
It’s worth noting that Tyler begins the song with the following disclaimer:
Hey, don’t do anything that I say in this song, OK?
It’s fucking fiction.
If anything happens, don’t fuckin’ blame me, white America.”
