Tyler, the Creator has denied any connection to a mysterious new website that many fans thought was his creation. “Not my site, y’all gullible smh,” he tweeted before deleting the message (as he promised to do). The site, ScumFuckFlowerBoy.com, was preceded by a supposed “tracklist leak” for a record alleged to come out May 5. The same date is written on the site, which later instituted a password and, as of today, a countdown clock. Given Tyler’s penchant for bright colors (the site is bright cyan and yellow), flowers, and foul language, fans were quick to assume it meant a new album from Tyler was set to come out that day. See a screenshot of Tyler’s since-deleted tweets below.
