Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator may be known for pulling his own pranks with the new Adult Swim series "Loiter Squad",  however, he recently fell victim of a prank last night on MTV's show "Punk'd".

On last night's episode (April 5), Tyler's love for skateboarding got used against him.

Tyler, the Creator is usually the one pulling the pranks, but the joke was on him on last night's "Punk'd." "Jackass" stars Bam Margera and Wee-Man fooled the Odd Future leader into thinking he was going to a charity event for the Tony Hawk Foundation. When he got there, they had him turn on the grill in a food truck to heat up a tortilla. After he was finished, the truck burst into a ball of flames and one guy caught on fire. A shocked Tyler snapped photos on his phone and jumped in the back of a flatbed truck, while the founder of the charity blamed him for leaving the gas on and causing the destruction. (Rap-Up)

Despite falling victim to the prank-inspired show, Tyler promoted last night's episode on Twitter.

"IM ON PUNK'D TONIGHT THO, WATCH THAT!!!!!!!!' MTV #punkd," he tweeted Thursday.

Back in January, Tyler had a one-on-one interview with skateboard legend Tony Hawk.

"I did music and then I got into skateboarding because my friends did," Tyler explained. "This is like around Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 around 2002. As corny as that sounds, that's my sh*t. Then from there on, all my friends skate. Yeah. By the way, Tony Hawk Underground is in my top three games. Ever. ... Whenever people use my skateboarding, songs at their f*cking parks and sh*t, I be stoked as f*ck." (RIDE Channel)

The rapper is known for pulling his own pranks on the new "Loiter Squad" television series.

"Loiter Squad" is an American sketch comedy television series starring Tyler, The Creator, Jasper Dolphin, Taco Bennett, and Lionel Boyce, with appearances from various other members of the Los Angeles hip hop collective Odd Future. Jeff Tremaine, Shanna Zablow, Dimitry Elyashkevich, Lance Bangs and Nick Weidenfeld are the show's executive producers. (Wikipedia)
