On Eminem's Kamikaze track "Fall" he calls his constant critic Tyler, The Creator a "f**got."
Bon Iver's Justin Vernon was on the track. However, when it dropped he distance himself from it in a series of Tweets.
Was not in the studio for the Eminem track... came from a session with BJ Burton and Mike Will. Not a fan of the message, it’s tired. Asked them to change the track, wouldn’t do it. Thanks for listening to BRM https://t.co/E0wmt732ty— blobtower (@blobtower) August 31, 2018
Eminem is one of the best rappers of all time , there is no doubt. I have and will respect that. Tho, this is not the time to criticize Youth, it’s the time to listen. To act. It is certainly not the time for slurs. Wish they would have listened when we asked them to change it— blobtower (@blobtower) August 31, 2018
A year later, and Vernon wishes he handled the situation differently. He told Zane Lowe that he still doesn't think Em's slur was appropriate. However, he wishes he hadn't taken to social media to express his displeasure.
"I made that huge mess out of the Eminem song," Vernon said. "I was just in a carwash, and I just tweeted. It's like, what was I doing? I should've just probably chilled out and actually just said, 'Please don't put this song out.' And it was very rude and I felt really bad about it. I think people have not figured out how to calculate how easy it is to say something on there [Twitter] with how much you should say it."
