Tyler, The Creator is making headline waves after his epic response to why black representation is so important in the cartoon/animated world.

Before he hit the stage at Panorama in NYC (above), the Flower Boy rapper hit up San Diego Comic Con to promote his upcoming cartoon, “The Jellies!”

A reporter asked Tyler why he chose to make the main character, Cornell, black as he was previously white on the GOLF Media app. As soon as that woman asked him that question, it was as if something ticked in Tyler’s brain.  And he let her have it. Not in a bad way, but you can tell he’s very passionate about black representation in the animated world.

“Why can’t n*ggas have anything man?, he started off to answer the reporter's question. "How many f*ckin black cartoon characters is it on TV right now? Name five. I’ll give you time. It is none. We don’t got sh*t.”

“So, I said f*ck that. We about to make this n*gga black, and he ain’t got no guns, he ain’t shoot no fucking basketball, and he’s a fucking goober, and we gone put him on TV. And he’s the lead character, he ain’t the comic relief, he ain’t the sidekick, he the lead n*gga.”

Word.

Props to Tyler for telling it like it is with ZERO f***s given. “The Jellies!” will makes it debut on Adult Swim. No word just yet on the premiere date.
