Tyler the Creator has been accused of being homophobic, but that didn’t keep the most notorious member of Odd Future from dressing up in women’s tennis clothing to portray one of the Williams sisters for an upcoming episode of Loiter Squad, the new live action show coming to Adult Swim next year. The show stars the various characters in Odd Future’s ever expanding orbit, and is being produced by master mischiefs Spike Jonez and Johnny Knoxville.LA Weekly detailed the prank, which had some tennis fans believing Tyler and columnist Lionel Boyce were actually Serena and Venus from a distance.
They said there was a big crowd of people, waiting on the arrival of the Williams sisters. I peaked around the corner to see everyone, and a couple of people cheered a little. I guess from a distance our costumes looked pretty real. Tyler had on a white tank top, a pink skirt and a wig with individual braids and beads in it. I had on a curly, blond wig, a padded tank top and pink tennis shorts…The closer we got, the more people realized it wasn’t the Williams sisters — it was just two big black guys dressed up like them.
