Fired "Squidbillies" Star Unknown Hinson Blames YOU for the Fallout of His Dolly Parton Attack

We apparently "ruined" his life by not being racist and sexist enough to accept his attacks on Dolly Parton.

On Sunday guitarist and voice actor Stuart D. Baker, better known as his stage persona Unknown Hinson, was fired from the long-running Adult Swim show Squidbillies.

Baker had voiced the show's main character, Early Cuyler, for over 12 seasons, lending his distinctive voice to a show dedicated to stereotypes of ignorance and intolerance in the rural south. Unfortunately for Baker, it turns out that his act as a belligerent sexist bigot was...not really an act.

Happy Birthday, Tyler, the Creator: 9 of His Most Iconic Moments

The eccentric rapper turns 29 today.

Today, March 6, 2020, Tyler Okonma—best known as Tyler, the Creator—turns 29 years old.

The polymathic rapper first rose to prominence as a founding member of the alternative hip-hop collective, Odd Future, whose debut album was released in 2012. And although multiple members of the now-inactive group have experienced fruitful solo careers—Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt among them—Tyler, the Creator's has arguably left the most recognizable influence. With five studio albums, a clothing line, a music festival, and much more on his resume, Tyler has been cited as a major inspiration to Gen Z icons like Billie Eilish and BROCKHAMPTON's Kevin Abstract.

Occasionally controversial but always a brilliant artist, Tyler has made himself known as not only a masterful musician, but a filterless class clown of the real world. Below, here are nine of Tyler, the Creator's most iconic moments.

A Walking Paradox

With just a cockroach, a noose, and a perspective control lens, Tyler introduced his solo rap career with one of the most unforgettable music videos of the decade (self-directed under his alter ego, Wolf Haley).
