Eminem Regrets Use of Gay Slur

This is hilarious. Have you ever listened to Eminem? He uses just about every slur in the book. But this is the bridge too far?

Eminem says he was uncomfortable with homophobic lyrics he wrote and released on his recent album, Kamikaze.

He faced criticism for his language on album track Fall while speaking about Tyler, The Creator.

Eminem says he “felt like this might be too far”, in a new interview to promote the record on his own YouTube channel.

“In my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it,” says Eminem.

“It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going ‘I don’t feel right with this’.”

Eminem has been criticised for his use of homophobic lyrics throughout his 20-year career in the mainstream.

His early albums are littered with gay slurs.

The rapper has previously defended his offensive language, saying that he believes the F-word is the same as calling someone a ‘punk’.

But he also formed a friendship with Elton John, who said in 2017 that Eminem was not homophobic and claimed he was “writing about the way things are, not how he thinks.”

“It’s OK… I have a lot of gay friends…”
