EMINEM has been criticised after he made light of the Manchester Arena bombing, which killed 22 people, in a rap on his new album, Music To Be Murdered By.
He makes a shocking reference to the 2017 terror attack, singing: “I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.”
Many were appalled, asking: “What made it seem right to write a lyric like this about Manchester? You have no idea what Ariana Grande went through.”
Another said: “The fact that Eminem made a joke about the Manchester attack in his song makes me sick.
“He can’t get out of this one. He fully said her name and can’t deny it at all. Disgusting. How insensitive do u have to be to say something like this.”
Another wrote: “Eminem really is nearly 50 & writing lyrics about manchester without any remorse ???? how can u possibly think that’s ok ???”
Eminem’s shocking lyrics
“But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game
“Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.
“Here comes Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khomeini
“Where’s Osama been? I been laden lately.”
One other posted a clip of the song, called Unaccommodating, tweeting: “This is so disgusting, eminem using the ariana grande manchester attack for SONG LYRICS?! it’s just disgusting.”
Suicide bomber Salman Ramadan Abedi murdered 22 people as fans were leaving the concert in May 2017.
The Islamic State terror group later claimed responsibility for the Manchester bomb attack.
One jihadi shared a shot of injured children, saying: “It seems that bombs of the British airforce over children of Mosul and Raqqa has just came back to Manchester.”
Eminem released Music To Be Murdered By just after midnight in America, announcing its arrival via a low-key tweet.
The 47-year-old star, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, has a reputation for making reference to shocking events in his songs.
In Patiently Waiting, his track with 50 Cent, he mentions the September 11 terror attacks against the United States.
