The track ‘Unaccommodating’ from the rapper’s surprise album Music To Be Murdered By features artist Young M.A and within the lyrics which go like, “But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting”.
Fans were absolutely appalled by Eminem’s insensitivity and immediately took to Twitter and started calling him out on it. One fan wrote, “Eminem literally just made a joke about the manchester bombing at ariana grande’s concert… that is just so f**king sick, y’all better not give this man any attention. people literally lost their lives, and you’re going to release music and try to make a profit off of them?” while another fan wrote, “Nah Eminem I was rooting for u but then heard that Ariana line… that’s s**t ain’t funny”. And another tweet read, “eminem stans are really trying to defend his joke about a terrorist attack that killed 22 people and gave ariana PTSD…literally bye”.
Ariana Grande is yet to react on this controversy. Other artists who feature in Eminem’s new album are the late Juice WRLD, Q-Tip, Ed Sheeran, Black Thought, Young M.A, and Anderson .Paak.
