Controversial rap group Odd Future have been banned from New Zealand.

The hip-hop collective was set to play a show at the Rapture festival in Auckland this weekend (15-16Feb14) but their entry visas were revoked hours before they were due to land in the country.

New Zealand immigration bosses have issued a statement quoting the country's legislation which allows entry to be denied "where there is reason to believe there is, or is likely to be, a threat or risk to public order or the public interest".

In 2011, the U.S. group was dropped from the Auckland leg of the travelling Big Day Out festival amid complaints some of their lyrics are homophobic, and Odd Future star Tyler, The Creator is disappointed with the latest snub.

In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, "Of is banned from New Zealand, again. They said we were 'terrorist threats and bad for the society' or whatever. Sick... love Nz tho (sic)."
