For its Throwback Thursday series, Complex shared a handful of #adorable childhood photos of industry A-listers.
Eminem was among the celebrities honored with a throwback post this week — but rather than obsess over Marshall Mathers' childhood cuteness, trolls took advantage of the opportunity to roast the rapper for looking like a "school shooter."
Complex shared this photo of Eminem as a child — and immediately, trolls flooded the magazine's feed with ignorant comments.
Growing up in Detroit, Eminem had an infamously rough childhood.
(His early rap days are depicted in the 2002 drama "8 Mile.")
This photo gives fans a glimpse at a happier Mathers, but haters were able to turn a positive, adorable snapshot into something negative.
Trolls blasted Eminem's childhood appearance, claiming he looked like a "school shooter" in the making.
Mean-spirited commenters kept the jokes coming.
But these comments aren't OK; they're cruel.
While it's true that the vast majority of mass shootings in this country are committed by white men, using an innocent childhood photo to "joke" about that fact is disturbing and wrong.
Especially in light of the recent Las Vegas massacre, the "school shooter" comments are uncalled for.
(Seriously. WTF, guys?)
