Eminem has sparked serious backlash on social media, after he referenced the Manchester Arena bombing in one of his new songs.
This morning, the rapper dropped a surprise album called ‘Music to Be Murdered By’, which features the song, ‘Unaccommodating’.
In the song, Eminem addresses his feud with Machine Gun Kelly, before he appeared to make light of a terrorist attack that took place at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester back in 2017.
He raps: “But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.”
On May 22, 2017, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb as people were exiting Ariana’s concert at the Manchester Arena.
22 people lost their lives, including young children, and hundreds were injured.
Ariana has not yet commented on Eminem’s new song, but many fans have taken to Twitter to slam the rapper.

i’m sorry but fuck Eminem for that. Manchester was a tragedy that fucked Ariana’s mental state up to the core. This ain’t it. pic.twitter.com/rzNcKmDsFc

When is the public going to start holding men accountable for their behaviour oh my god, Eminem is talking about Manchester, something that will haunt Ariana forever and that changed her, as a joke and locals are laughing and calling those offended too sensitive?? Disgusting

So, the new Eminem album has a bar where he takes the piss out of the Manchester bombing..
If I didn’t hate him already for being a shite artist, this is even more of a reason.
Thanks for making light of the death of my two friends you useless sack of shit.
