Odd Future caused controversy on the Main Stage at Leeds Festival today (August 26) after they wrestled and beat a blow up doll onstage.

The LA rap collective brought the gagged and bound doll which they dubbed "Kimberly" onstage halfway through their set and Left Brain proceeded to wrestle it to the ground before it was kicked offstage.


Frontman Tyler, The Creator then turned to his band mate and said: "You body slammed that bitch. Is she OK?" before a steward passed it back to him. Tyler then lifted it up and added: "Let's see her," before he punched the doll back offstage and said: "Fuck that bitch."

Later Jasper Dolphin brought it back onstage and burst its head with his foot, adding: "Shit, I just killed Kimberly."

The collective performed a similar set to their Reading performance yesterday (August 25) with tracks including 'Sandwitches' and 'Yonkers' proving to be the highlights. That set was also incident-hit when Left Brain and Tyler tangled with security and had to be physically wrestled away from the crowd. They then proceeded to mock the security team by miming sexual positions in front and behind each of them.

As they left the stage today, Tyler took a picture of the crowd for his Instagram page, before the rap collective took a snap of themselves.
