Odd Future rapper Tyler, The Creator isn't slowing down his tour despite his Saturday arrest for allegedly inciting a riot at Austin's South By Southwest festival. 

On Twitter, Tyler thanked fans in Dallas for showing up to his Saturday night show at the House of Blues just hours after he was released from an Austin jail. 

The emcee also took the opportunity to lash out at those who have mistakenly connected his arrest with the tragic incident involving an alleged drunk driver who struck a crowd outside of a festival venue earlier in the week.  He asked people to "stop going out of your way" to tie him to the accident that killed two people, adding "it bums me out." 

Tyler, The Creator's tour heads to Orlando, Florida on Monday, followed by shows in Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta.
