Tyler, the Creator tells Timothée Chalamet to 'come get at me' in new single

The controversial rapper was banned from the UK in 2015 for his use of homophobic lyrics

Tyler, the Creator has told Timothée Chalamet to "come get at me" in his new single 'Okra'. 

The controversial rapper has repeatedly sparked confusion over his sexuality. In 2015, Tyler claimed he had been banned from the UK for his use of homophobic lyrics but then included lyrics about kissing boys in his 2017 album Flower Boy

Now, Tyler has only added to the confusion with the release of his latest single 'Okra' this week in which he raps about Call Me By Your Name's Timothée Chalamet. 

In the song's third verse, Tyler raps: "Tell Timothée Chalamet to come get at me/skin glowin', clear of acne/diamonds see-through, so holographic". 
 

Twitter has since gone wild over the song lyrics, with many wondering if the rapper was admitting to having a crush on the award-winning actor. 

Tyler, who notoriously used the word 'f**got' 200 times on his 2011 debut album Goblin, has long been accused of being a homophobe but raised eyebrows last year after he said he had a boyfriend as a teenager on Koopz Tunes radio show.

However, the 27-year-old then backtracked on the comments on Twitter, insisting they were used as a "figure of speech". 

Meanwhile, Tyler hit headlines last year after including the lyric "I been kissing white boys since 2004" on his track 'I Ain't Got Time', which many perceived to be a coming out announcement.
