Eminem's New Album Is Already Receiving Backlash For Homophobic Comments About Tyler, The Creator

In 2018, can phobias and isms please become a thing of the past?

Eminem dropped a surprise album, Kamikaze, on us Thursday night. While his fans seem excited to have new music from the Detroit rapper, it hasn't come without backlash after he used a homophobic slur against a fellow rapper.

On "Fall," Tyler, The Creator is one of several rappers catching Marshall Mathers' smoke, but he went a little too far. 

“Tyler create nothing, I see why you called yourself a f****t, b***h/ It's not just 'cause you lack attention/ It's 'cause you worship D12's balls, you're sacrilegious," Eminem raps.

Tyler has been critical of Eminem in the past, but fans of both artists took offense to the lyrics. Although he censored the word, in 2018, we know a slur when we hear its first syllable. 








While Eminem took a shot at other rappers including  Drake, Lil Yachty, Joe Budden, Lil Pump, Lil Xan and Machine Gun Kelly on the track, the homophobia was the loudest. The rapper has denied being homophobic for years, claiming his use of anti-gay slurs is the equivalent of calling someone a "b***h" or a "punk a**hole."

"So, that word was just thrown around so freely back then," he said in a 2013 interview with Rolling Stone. "The real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all. I'm glad we live in a time where it's really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves."

Personal problem or not, words mean things, and words that don't belong to you or your community aren't yours for the taking.
