Tyler, The Creator Has Been Banned From Australia, Cancels Tour

Why don't they like me?
Tyler, The Creator tweeted last night that he's been banned from Australia. Of course this means upcoming tour dates have been cancelled.
It isn't officially clear why he isn't allowed to enter the country, but he did mention Coralie Alison in his tweet. Coralie is the Director of Operations at Collective Shout, an organisation who've been propelling a petition to keep him out of the country. Showing video footage of Tyler saying mean things to one of their activists in the middle of a set in Sydney 2013, they urged supporters to add their name to a letter to the Immigration Minister appealing for his visa to be denied.
There's been no response from Coralie just yet (she's probably asleep/reporting heaps of hectic @ mentions), but Tyler sent out another tweet clearly bummed, and stinging for a Golden Gaytime (same).
UPDATE: According to promoters Frontier Touring, the tour hasn't been cancelled. In a post on the official Facebook page, Frontier wrote: "With respect to media reports that Tyler the Creator's visa has been refused, Frontier would like to advise that this is not the case.
The department for immigration has raised issues with the visa application but it has not been refused and Frontier will update ticket holders as soon as more information comes to hand."
Fingers crossed that Tyler was misinformed and that the tour goes ahead after all.
