Oil leaking from oil filter

I got an 2016 IS200t and just did the first oil change and when I turn on the car oil is spewing out of the oil filter. So i turned it off and see oil dripping from around the oil filter cap. I suspect maybe it was the gasket so i got a new one but same thing. Has this happen to anyone else, im going to buy a brand new housing and hope that it fix the issue. Also the when inspecting the oil filter cap its not cracked or broken. Why would all of a sudden its leaking.

Isn't the car still under warranty? If so, I would take it in to a dealer and get them to fix the issue.

Perhaps you are using the wrong filter and it's not seating properly? That would be my only guess.
