Tyler The Creator, the 22-year-old California-based rapper, is defending his friend Justin Bieber by calling the singer's naysayers evil.
Bieber has been under scrutiny most recently for his reported reckless driving. After former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson spoke out publicly against the 19-year-old singer's driving habits, the rapper defended him on Twitter.
"That was me behind the wheel of Justins' vehicle," the rapper insisted via Twitter Saturday. "Don't blame him. People are actually evil swearing up and down that it was who it wasn't."
While Bieber has been recently accused of fathering a child, he took to Twitter to clear up the rumor while thanking Tyler The Creator.
"All good buddy," the singer tweeted. "I deal with this every day. Thanks though. The baby aint mine either."
Bieber has reportedly drawn the ire of his fellow Calabasas community residents, including former NFL players Johnson and Eric Dickerson, the New York Daily News reports. Dickerson recently took to Twitter to speak out against Bieber's reported reckless driving.
"I live in Calabasas too and @justinbieber needs to slow his (expletive) down," Dickerson tweeted about Bieber recently. "Hey @justinbieber I used to have a white Ferrari too, but I knew the speed limit in neighborhoods where kids played."
Bieber made headlines for allegedly speeding in Calabasas, Calif. during Memorial Day weekend. However, TMZ reported that another rapper friend of the singer, Lil Twist, was pulled over while driving Bieber's car most recently.
"Police pulled Twist over as he roared out of Bieber's gated community in Calabasas, but they let him off with just a warning," sources affiliated with law enforcement reportedly told TMZ.
Although two of the singer's friends have reportedly owned up to driving Bieber's car, the New York Daily News reports that at least three witnesses saw the singer speeding in his own vehicle throughout the Calabasas community in which he resides.
