Tyler, The Creator has said that he may be blamed for future Columbine-style school shootings.

The Odd Future rapper compared himself to Eminem and Marilyn Manson, who was blamed by some people for the 1999 school shootings on account of his controversial lyrics.

Tyler, The Creator told Respect magazine that his track 'Radicals' will either "make me an icon" or "get me in a lot of f**king heat with a lot of parents".

"If Columbine is re-enacted or some s**t, that's gonna be on my f**king head," he said. "Yeah, it'll be my fault, just like it was Em's and Marilyn's and f**king Slipknot's and all them motherf**kers."

Tyler, The Creator added that writing and recording his material was his form of therapy, saying: "All my songs are me reflecting and talking to myself. The dude in my head, who is the doctor dude you hear on some songs."

This is the second time that Tyler, The Creator has mentioned the Columbine shootings. In June, he was quoted as saying that the shooters may have been "really cool people".
