Tyler, the Creator and the Odd Future crew swung by Buzzfeed's New York office on Wednesday hoping to have some fun, but they discovered the site's editors didn't have the same idea of a good time.

When the hip-hop collective visited HuffPost Live shortly after, the group told host Ricky Camilleri they were disappointed by the reception they got at Buzzfeed.

The Odd Future guys called Buzzfeed "boring" and Tyler, the Creator said of the Buzzfeed office that "half the people there didn't like me."

"I guess some of the people who work in the office [were like], 'I'm above this, oh my god, we're working, we have strong opinions,'" Tyler said. "We just came in there trying to bring in so much yellow freaking filling to their gray, boring [lives]."

Tyler said the negative reaction "bummed [him] out" because the group had a good time at Buzzfeed. As Gawker documented Wednesday, many staff members tweeted displeasure with the Odd Future visit, and one editor talked about one member shooting a Nerf gun.

Regarding the Nerf gun, Tyler added that it doesn't make sense to have toys in an office if you don't expect them to be played with.

"One, I didn't touch the Nerf gun. Two, that was Jasper [Dolphin]. Three, it didn't hit anyone. And four, dude, you have a Nerf gun in the office," Tyler said. "How do you have a Nerf gun in there if you don't want anybody messing with it?"
