The pair's band Odd Future and Tyler himself have previously been criticised for using homophobic slurs in their tracks.

Tyler, The Creator has since dismissed claims he's homophobic, telling a fan on Formspring: "Hahaha yeah, ive know for a while, he told me a long time ago (sic).

"It was just funny cause i was getting bashed as a homophobe or whatever and i kept saying dude how am i one? i have gay friends like what the f**k leave me alone haha. yeah thats my n**ga tho, s**t is hard for him but he did that."

He had previously tweeted that he was "proud" of Ocean.

Stars such as Professor Green and Russell Simons have also praised Ocean's honesty.
