The general consensus is that Eminem killed it in yesterday's 'SHADY CXVPHER.' But it wouldn't be Em if there wasn't also a bit of controversy, right?

And here it is: There has been increasing scrutiny of Shady's verse "I may fight for gay rights, especially if the dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice / Play nice, bitch I'll punch Lana Del Ray in the face twice like Ray Rice / in broad daylight / in plain sight of elevator surveillance / 'til the head is bangin' on the railin' / then celebrate with the Ravens."

Critics say such language trivializes violence against women.

Rapper Azealia Banks, who is a friend of Del Rey, attacked Eminem on Twitter. First she threatened  to punch him in the mouth in a Tweet she deleted, and then she sent out this to her followers:

So far no comment from Del Rey. But given that the sultry crooner has a long habit of using shock to promote her own career, we can't imagine she's too upset about the free publicity.
