Tyler, The Creator celebrates Theresa May's resignation after she banned him from UK

Tyler, The Creator celebrated British Prime Minister Theresa May's resignation announcement on Friday, saying: "theresa gone, im back."

The American rapper appeared to be alluding to when he was barred from entering the United Kingdom in 2015. At the time, he took to Twitter, where he blamed lyrics of his from 2009 for the ban.

He was reportedly told that he had been banned by May, who was then serving as home secretary, and could not enter the country for three to five years. The ban forced him to cancel concert and festival appearances in the country.

The singer had also been banned in New Zealand the previous year for posing "a potential threat to public order and the public interest," The Guardian reported.

May made a tearful announcement early Friday morning that she would resign next month as the Conservative Party's leader as well as prime minister.

The announcement comes as the U.K. continues to debate its future relationship with the European Union and has failed repeatedly to reach a Brexit deal.

Tyler, The Creator, recently released his new album "IGOR" and has announced three shows in London. The shows quickly sold out.
