Ben Roethlisberger: Despicable, Clowned By Eminem

by at . Comments

Sorry, Ben Roethlisberger. If it's a taboo subject, carries pop cultural significance or involves a celebrity (you're 3-for-3), Eminem is gonna go there.

Ben has been immortalized in one of the rapper's songs, fittingly called "Despicable." That's when you know you've made it ... for better or worse.

The Pittsburgh Steelers QB thus joins the ranks of Moby, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Michael Jackson, his mom, ex-wife and countless others.

"I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl/Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall," Eminem raps, referencing Ben's recent scandal.

The line recalls March incident in which, at least according to the unnamed Ben Roethlisberger accuser, he sexually assaulted her in nightclub stall.

Em's about as subtle and restrained as he is un-funny.

EMINEM 1, BIG BEN 0: Sorry dude. You had it coming.

While prosecutors declined to charge the two-time Super Bowl champion, citing lack of evidence, the Steelers' organization and the NFL were none too pleased.

After all, it wasn't the first time a woman made such allegations about him (Andrea McNulty was the first). Big Ben was suspended without pay for six games.

His lame apology didn't exactly make him appear sympathetic.

Roethlisberger's attorney and Steelers representatives did not immediately return calls seeking Big Ben's appraisal of the new Eminem track ... shockingly.

"Despicable" is streaming at Rapradar.com, a site run by Em's manager. It does not, sadly, appear on his upcoming new album, Recovery, due out June 22.
