However interestingly, Jaden Smith has now deleted the tweet, although Tyler The Creator’s response still remains.

Despite being heavily criticised for homophobic slurs in the past, some fans strongly suspected that Tyler The Creator was gay, following his latest album ‘Flower Boy’.

In 2015, Tyler tweeted: “I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA."
