First Boston, now Detroit. After nearly starting a riot on Beantown's historic Newbury Street last week, Odd Future's fans caused another disturbance in the Motor City last night [May 18]. 


After numerous people in the audience dangerously hurled glass bottles onto the stage at the group, front man Tyler, The Creator threatened to end the Majestic Theatre show early. When the crowd didn't comply some of the assailants were escorted out by security and the show ended early for all. 


"Detroit Was So F-----g Tight…Until the 3rd Glass Bottle Almost Hit Us…Then N----s Fired on N----s…Then We Left…Still Cool Tho. F---," Tyler wrote on Twitter. 


OF later went on their Tumblr page to set the dangerous scene: "The First One During The First Song Was Whatever, Almost Hitting Syd, We Got Over It. The Second One Went Right Past Domos Face, Landing Near Syds Feet, Almost Cutting Her Up. She Said F--- It And Wasnt Gonna Wait For The 3rd One To Do Any Damage. Which Was Thrown 30 Seconds Later. Sorry Guys, But When you Are Throwing Big Ass Glass Bottles On Stage, N----s Is Not Going To Wait Until One Cracks Them In The Head Or Shatters And Gets In Their Eyes Or What Ever." 


As previously reported, rowdy fans in Boston ended a meet and greet early after police were called to calm an overwhelming crowd that gathered outside of the event location.
