…I’m going to say this.
While, I was initially pleased with the vibe, sound and feeling behind the song and ready to express my excitement in a post…Eminem ruined all of that.
Still feeling empowered by using “faggot,” eh? Good one. Such an angry, angry, angry man who could actually benefit more from a great therapist than a recording studio. You’ve battled with human rights activists enough times to understand the problematic usage of this word. So, I blame you. You have no way to squirm out of this one. You’re disgusting and you couldn’t give two shits about it.
And, I blame you too, Nicki. You’ve spoken out numerous times about your support for the gay community yet you embrace the homophobic slurs that feature acts include in their verses? Cool. If you truly loved your gay fans, that would not have been included in the final mix of the track, no matter how popular your collaborators are.
The use and impact of this word is one of the reasons why teenage boys and girls are taking their lives far too frequently. And, Eminem has used one of the strongest instruments for change and influence to only endorse and strengthen its usage.
So much bigger than just a word…
