Tyler, the Creator clearly cares about his fans.

During a Call Me If You Get Lost Tour stop in Orlando on Friday, the rapper told his audience about a situation that played out while he was getting ice cream at a local Baskin-Robbins earlier that day.

“We walk in and the girl working there, she’s like, ‘Oh my god! Fuck! This is so crazy! I was supposed to see you tonight!’ And I’m like, ‘Well, why aren’t you coming?’ And she’s like, ‘Well, my bitch ass boyfriend broke up with me a week ago.’ And I’m like, ‘What the fuck that mean?’” Tyler told the audience.

He went on to explain that the woman’s ex-boyfriend had purchased tickets before they broke up, but now “he said he’s gonna take his friend instead. So I’m like, ‘Oh, okay, I respect him. I feel it.’”

He continued, “So whatever, she’s freaking out. I guess she text him like, ‘You bitch ass n***a, Tyler, the Creator here buying ice cream.’ So I’m like, ‘Fuck, okay, that’s sick.’ She’s giving me my shake, and this big doofy doop fuck just walks in and he’s looking at me. And she’s like, ‘That’s him, that’s the n***a that dumped me.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh!’

Tyler then went on to call out the ex personally. “His name’s Andrew—if you’re here Andrew, you a bitch. I don’t know where the fuck the n***a at,” he said. 

Tyler said he persuaded the ice cream store employee’s ex to give her the ticket.

“So I’m like, ‘You Andrew, n***a?’” he said. “He’s like, ‘Oh yeah, I’m Andrew.’ And I’m looking at her and I could tell she really wanted to come, right? So I’m like, ‘So you gonna take her ticket away?’ He’s like, ‘I’m just a big fan.’ I’m like, ‘Send her the ticket right now.’” Tyler explained.

Tyler and his friends apparently started intimidating Andrew a bit by surrounding him. “And I got two big muthafuckas with me, they like eight feet. And we surrounding this n***a, blood like 4’1,” he added.”

“[I said], ‘N***a, send her the ticket.’ He goes to his phone, he’s shaking. This n***a goes to Ticketmaster.com, goes to the thing to try to close his phone. I’m like, ‘N***a, send her the fucking ticket right now.’ We watched this man screenshot the ticket and text it to her. And I walk over there to make sure she got the text and she’s like, ‘Yes, I got it.’”

Tyler’s tour runs until April 8 when it closes out in Seattle.
