Eminem has a history of violent lyrics. His past singles have included threats made toward his mother and ex-wife, proving that the now 47-year-old rapper holds nothing back. However, he may have finally met his match after including a lyric on his recent album about the tragic bombing at Ariana Grande's Manchester concert

It looks like not much has changed.

To the surprise of just about everyone, Eminem dropped an album at midnight. 

Titled Music to Be Murdered, the record, which included aggressive cover art of the rapper holding an ax and a gun, had everyone in complete shock. Of course, his fans began to stream, ecstatic that the lyricist was back to making music. 

However, the excitement quickly turned to disgust for Ariana Grande fans. 

The rapper seems to have referenced the Manchester bombing in one of his songs, and people are not happy about it. "Eminem really said in his new song 'unaccommodating' the lyrics 'bombs away like I'm at an ariana grande concert' and proceeded after with gun shots/explosions mocking manchester. i am disgusted how did he or his team think this was okay? he's trash," a tweet read. 

Some believe that he's using the tragic incident for attention and money. 

"Eminem literally just made a joke about the manchester bombing at ariana grande’s concert ... that is just so f*cking sick, y’all better not give this man any attention. people literally lost their lives, and you’re going to release music and try to make a profit off of them?" someone wrote in disgust about the nature of the lyrics. 

But his fans are standing by him.

"#Eminem is the King of longevity," a fan tweeted. "People tried to cancel him in 99 and failed, they tried to cancel him in 2000s and failed, he overdosed and came back they again tried to cancel him in 2010s and failed he was the highest selling male artist, now, dropped this classic in 2020."

Whew, who knew someone could withstand so many cancelations. 

And ultimately, it's because he keeps making it through cancelations that some people think giving him energy isn't even worth it. 

"Y’all are gonna waste your energy telling Eminem he is wrong for that Ariana line," an Ariana fan wrote. "Pls I beg be more productive. That man wrote a song about killing his own mother & another about killing his baby mama. I swear it’s not worth it."
