Eminem apologises for using ‘homophobic’ insult for fellow rapper Tyler in Kamikaze

Popular American rapper Eminem created some controversy with his recent use of ‘homophobic’ lyrics in latest album Kamikaze. The 45-year-old musician faced criticism from all quarters for using a homophobic slur for his fellow rapper Tyler. He apologised saying that he might have gone too far. According to a report by People, addressing the issue in an interview with radio host Sway, the rapper acknowledged that in his quest to hurt Tyler, he ended up hurting a lot of other people.

Eminem said this after coming under fire for the words he chose to use in 'Fall', a track from his latest album titled 'Kamikaze' that came out in August. The lyrics of the songs read, "Tyler create nothin', I see why you called yourself a f-t, bitch / It's not just 'cause you lack attention / It's 'cause you worship D12's balls, you're sacrilegious / If you're gonna critique me, you better at least be as good or better."

Tyler responded to his rap on Twitter saying, “Dear god this song is horrible, sheesh how the f**k.”

On the work front, the 15-time Grammy winner dropped his latest album 'Kamikaze' On August 30. Later the same day, the rapper also uploaded a 15-second teaser of his song from the upcoming action-packed film 'Venom'.
