Eminem Catching Heat For Lyric About Ariana Grande And The Manchester Bombing

Eminem surprised his fans by dropping a new album titled Music to be Murdered By on Friday. The theme of the album seems to be attacking gun laws. In the music video for a track titled ‘Darkness‘ Eminem alludes to the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting.

It also features news broadcasts from other mass shootings with text at the end that reads, “When will this end? When enough people care. Register to vote at Make your voice heard and help change gun laws in America.”

And hey, no one can argue with that. Good on Eminem for addressing gun violence in America. That’s a big move.

But most people are more focused on another track he released. During the song Unaccommodating, Eminem references the Manchester Bombing at an Ariana Grande concert back in 2017.

“But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game / Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting,” he raps, and then an explosion sound can be heard.

Obviously the lyric is getting lots of attention online, and the hashtag #EminemIsOverParty started to trend.

And while lots of people are upset, there are those out there defending Eminem, pointing out that the rapper helped raise over $2 million in donations to the Manchester attack victims.

What do you think? Did Em go too far? Is he out of touch?
