Eminem "Rap God" Lyrics: Offensive to Gays?

by at . Comments

Eminem may be a Rap God, but he continues to act like an enemy of the LGBT community.

The artist's newly-released single kicks off with lyrics about breaking "a motherf-cking table over the back of a couple faggots" and goes on to say: "You fags think it’s all a game."

In the second verse, Eminem raps about a "little gay-looking boy" who is "so gay I can barely say it with a straight face-looking boy."

Not all listeners are fans of these words and this isn't the first time Eminem has faced criticism for his seemingly homophobic lyrics.

He infamously sang about dagger-like words that will "stab you in the head, whether you're a fag or a lez" on 2000's hit single, "Criminal."

He then performed alongside Elton John at the Grammys that year, ending the duet with a hug and outraging the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation in the process.

But Eminem also said in a 2010 interview with The New York Times that he favors gay marriage, telling the publication:

"I think I've calmed down a bit. My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be."

Is this really true, based on his new song? You tell us: Eminem's "Rap God" is...

Eminem has always used the term "Fag" or "Faggot" the same way most black rappers use the N-Word. He has stated in interviews that the word Fag was tossed around in jest when he was a child, and in no way does he mean for it to be offensive to gays.

So basically it all depends who is saying it.

You really have some self-esteem and sensitivity issues. You need to understand the context in which the word faggot is being said. Straight people can be called faggots. its just a derogtory term as much as idiot moron bitch and a**hole are...please enlighten yourself

Les don't be a smart a** you know what she ment. Gays are just trying to find a reason to get back in the spotlight since the whole gay marriage has blown over. they want nothing but attention. but when it comes to eminem they probably wont get it. he has no filter and is not scared to say anything. he is awesome to me.

Awesome to you and that tells me what I need to know. I could care less about M&M or any other dick holding individual. Gay marriage is not blown over because society is bent over so they can have their way.
