Tyler, the Creator Mugshot is a mugshot photograph of rapper Tyler, the Creator released by the Austin Police Department on March 15th, 2014 after the rapper was arrested for allegedly inciting a riot at the SXSW festival. The mugshot has since gained significant popularity in hip-hop and ironic meme communities as an exploitable.
On March 15th, 2014, American rapper Tyler, the Creator was arrested at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport by the Austin Police Department on the charge of inciting a riot at the SXSW festival a day prior. On the same day, a mugshot of the rapper was released by the police department (shown below). The rapper has subsequently been released on a $25,000 bond with the official charge being Riot-Class A Misdemeanor.
On March 16th, 2014, Redditor BryanBeast13 posted the mugshot to /r/photoshopbattles subreddit, with multiple users responding with edits of the photograph, including a noseless edit by Redditor Friesheid (examples shown below). The thread gained over 1,900 upvotes in six months.
In the following years, the mugshot has seen use in edits among the rapper's fans, particularly in /r/tylerthecreator subreddit, with the image increasing in popularity towards mid-2019 (notable examples shown below). For example, a May 23rd, 2019, post by Redditor Marsuv1us showed the photograph appearing in a school yearbook.
Starting in mid-2019, the format saw further spread in the hip-hop and ironic meme communities, with notable posts appearing in /r/hiphopcirclejerk and /r/okbuddyretard subreddits, iFunny and Instagram.
