Tyler the Creator

Smacked in the Face

with Flying Bottle [Video]

11/7/2011 4:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tyler the Creator -- the guy who won the 2011 MTV VMA for "Best New Artist" -- took a serious blow to the head last night ... when a moron fired a bottle at the rapper during a concert ... and connected. 

Tyler was performing in Austin, TX -- when some idiot (with one hell of an arm) launched the projectile from the crowd ... and it struck T.T.C. right near his eye. 

One member of Tyler's crew immediately fired a water bottle back in the direction of the culprit -- and moments later, Tyler and the rest of his crew stormed into the crowd to hunt for the bad guy.

No word if Tyler suffered any injuries in the attack -- and so far, it's unclear if the crew ever found the bottle-thrower ... but it probably wasn't pretty if they did.

The guy that threw the bottle had just won the 'Throw a Beer Bottle at the guy with the Douchiest Name in the World Contest'. He could have either thrown it at Tyler the Creator, Diddy or Cedric the Entertainer - his choice.

Its a water bottle first off, somehow I think he will survive. Second, who gives two f**cks about this guy!? The things he raps about such as, "raping pregnant b**ches" should not get him any publicity! I cant believe people even listen to his noise!

im glad they threw the bottle at that dude, not only does he suck, but he is one of the biggest Homophobic ppl in the biz. In ATX they do not play, any rapper, from master p, TLC, DRE, EM, Mike Jones, have all had a fight at there concert in austin.

I was standing right in front of that idiot bottle-thrower. Some of us wanted to chase him but he fled the scene like a chump. Too bad, TTC went after the wrong dude. At least the show went on...OFWGKTA

Lol, seems like you guys don't know that Syd da Kyd (their DJ at the show, also a producer and singer in Odd Future)is lesbian do you? Learn not to take everything somebody says in their songs so seriously.

These guys promote violence against women. I am glad they got hit upside the head with a bottle. I'd love to use my fists but their bodyguards keep them hidden.
