What's an Eminem album without some controversy?
Shady's bars on the Music To Be Murdered By track "Unaccommodating" make reference to the 2017 Manchester bombing of an Ariana Grande concert, which killed 23 people.
"But I’m contemplating yelling ‘bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting," he raps with a bomb sound in the background.
A lot of folks on Twitter thought he crossed the line.
eminem literally just made a joke about the manchester bombing at ariana grande’s concert... that is just so fucking sick, y’all better not give this man any attention. people literally lost their lives, and you’re going to release music and try to make a profit off of them? pic.twitter.com/mKJo06RL9p— chris (mariestakis) (@sweeterheavens) January 17, 2020
(TW) Eminem really said in his new song "unaccommodating" the lyrics "bombs away like I'm at an ariana grande concert" and proceeded after with gun shots/explosions mocking manchester.. i am disgusted how did he or his team think this was okay? he's trash pic.twitter.com/Ra8G4SPeNN— sophia (@needygiaws) January 17, 2020

Figen Murray, whose son died in the attack, blasted Em for being "distasteful" and "pointless."
