Eminem called using a homophobic slur on his new album “Kamikaze” going “too far.”
The slur was used on the song “Fall” as a diss to rapper Tyler, The Creator.
“Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a f—-t, bitch,” Eminem raps.
Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who is featured on the track, said that he tried to get the lyric remove but was rejected. Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds also slammed Eminem for using the word.
In a new interview with Sway, Eminem admitted that using the word was “too far.”
“I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like, ‘This might be too far,’” Eminem says. “Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it.”
