Eminem is back with a surprise album and his return isn’t without controversy. The Detroit rapper is getting heat over a line in his song, “Unaccommodating,” which references the Manchester bombing at Ariana Grande’s concert in 2017.
"But I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game/Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting."
The line caught Grande and Eminem fans off guard and they took to Twitter to voice their disgust over the lyric.
"You're so disgusting I hope u know that..... what u said was very uncalled for and so hurtful to so many people,” one fan tweeted.
"Always had respect for Eminem but who tf makes a joke about a terrorist attack that killed innocent kids and permanently wounded others?"
Another fan wrote, “Ariana still hasn't healed from it either. I hope the 10 minutes of clout was worth it."
At the same time Eminem called for changes with gun laws. Sharing a video to one of the tracks on the album called, "Darkness," is about the tragic 2017 Las Vegas music festival mass shooting that left 58 people dead, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The video ends with a question and answer, "When will this end? When enough people care." The it continues guiding viewers to VOTE.ORG urging people to register to vote and help change gun laws in America. A link to Eminem's website is provided with more information. Check out the video below and don't forget to contact or visit gun violence prevention organizations, like Everytown for Gun Safety and Sandy Hook Promise.
Was Eminem’s lyric about the Manchester bombing out of line and did he make it even by urging for changes to America's gun laws?
