Tyler The Creator Crashed Tesla Model X Into Parked Car In LA

American rapper Tyler Gregory Okonma, also known as Tyler, the Creator, was involved in a massive car accident earlier this week after his Tesla Model X slammed into a parked Honda CR-V near the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.

According to authorities, the impact was so powerful, the parked car was propelled some 50 feet (15 m) away. Thankfully, nobody was injured, something the Model X definitely helped with.

The rapper later tweeted about the incident, although his explanation was eventually taken down. This is what he said to his followers, as reported by Fox News:

“My big doopy a– usually go to sleep 10:30 (i wake up at 7 er morn) and guess who wanted to finish music super late and dosed off for a few seconds while driving home, im a dumb a– b—h but lil mama don’t have a scratch im lucky. i calmly jumped out the back and called the people. thanks elon for the excessive airbags u a qt. good day sir.”

Reports indicate that no arrests have been made and since there were no injuries, no emergency medical services were called at the scene either. It also appears that Okonma left his info inside the CR-V, whose owner is now expecting a “decent check” from the rapper.

In retrospect, we’re pretty sure that Mr Okonma probably wishes he would have taken an Uber/Lyft home. These services exist for precisely these types of scenarios.

      • Todd Priest

        How so? Just because you disagree with someone doesn’t make it racist. Moron.

      We are all mutts then if you want to go down that route.

  • Mr. EP9

    Should have blamed it on autopilot but anyway, no one was hurt so that’s a good thing.

    • S3XY

      Ya he should have lied. I know that’s your go-to tactic.

      • Mr. EP9

        You mean like what you do to praise your lord and savior Musk? I’m well aware of that.

      • D3X

        Not until Tesla cracks open the black box and says you lied. Not a go-to tactic, Elon’s foiled a few liars already in public. Surprised a fan boy like you wouldn’t know.

  • anthony801

    he probably bought it used.

    • Jay

      Used Tesla still can get the features activated.

  • Jay

    Stupid smart car.

  • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

    At least the who thing didn’t burn out and the gimmicky rear doors still opened.

  • Blanka Li

    The emergency braking has been shut off of Teslas for quite a while. It worked in our 2014, magically disappeared during an “update” in our 2016 and Tesla won’t address the issue. The rapper was an idiot for the wreck, and nothing beats a driver paying attention, but Tesla’s constant swap out of features during its over-the-air updates is annoying at best, deadly at worst.

  • Paul

    I’m surprised he didn’t blame it on the self driving or the parked car 😉 lol.

  • Todd Priest

    Leaves the scene of wreck and nobody says a thing. He was likely under the influence and that is why he left. What a moron.
