Eminem Expresses Regret For Homophobic “F*ggot” Jab At Tyler The Creator

Published: Friday 14th Sep 2018 by Sam

Eminem is no stranger to drama, indeed for much of his early career he seemed to actively court it.

However, recent years have seen Slim Shady turn down the volume on the wacky antics and skew more introspective.

For his latest effort ‘Kamikaze,’ though, the 45-year-old opted to clap back at his detractors – including younger rappers Machine Gun Kelly and Tyler The Creator.

In Kelly’s case, that duel has proven beneficial for both – Em for his lyrical lashing and MGK for his response ‘Rap Devil’ (which is currently #1 on US iTunes).

Yet, it’s Marshall’s tussle with Tyler that has received ample backlash.

As widely reported, the Odd Future star came out as bisexual last year; something Em used as ammo in his diss towards the 25-year-old.

And now, after feeling the heat of social media and think-pieces, he’s back-tracking.

Details below…

On the song ‘Fall,’ the Hip-Hop heavyweight rapped:

“Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a f*ggot, bitch.
It’s not just ’cause you lack attention
It’s because you worship D12’s balls, you’re sack-religious
If you’re gonna critique me
You better at least be as good or better” 

Addressing the drama on his Kamikaze interview series with Sway Calloway, Em said:

“I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this might be too far. Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it. … It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going ‘I don’t feel right with this.’” 

The entire episode comes almost two decades after Em initially fell foul of favor with the LGBTQ community due to disparaging lyrics. He famously mended fences by performing with Elton John at the 2001 Grammys.

Watch as he elaborates on his regret at the 9.29 mark…

    This is the type of pshit why I cannot stand this man. He cemented his fame with this in the late 90s. And mocking famous people and so on. As a MAN he has behaved as a disgrace too. I don´t care if he is talented or not.. What hurts most is that others got backslash at the least opportunity, while he got a free pass for basically 20 entire years.

      But he’s a white man and I think we all know CLEARLY that that is how it goes…unfortunately. It seems a little late for apology now, especially as this is a repeat offense.

    I did not know the word f.aggot was that offensive to gays because I hear gay men call other gay men f.aggots, b|tches, girls, sissies, and queens often. Please correct me if I am wrong but if the word f.aggot is so offensive why do gay men still use it towards other gay men? Perhaps everyone should stop using the word and replace it with lgbq or simply the word gay.

    • pat September 14, 2018

      the same way blacks can use the n word and whites can’t…….every minority group has that privilege among themselves… but no one outside can use the word because it comes from a different place ..not sure why that’s rocket science to most people.

        I disagree with that logic but I think I will try to make a conscious effort not to use the word and encourage my gay friends to stop using it too. You cannot gay people to black people because gay is NOT a race. Black people are born black. THUS, they have NO CHOICE BUT TO BE BLACK. Gay people are not all born gay and many bisexuals like me can choose to identify as gay or choose to identify as straight depending on who we settle down with. Many gays are ex-gays meaning they were gay but settled down with a woman in a straight relationship and identify as straight. Remember, society as a whole is just now starting to embrace gays in the last 5 years so this is all new. Remember, being gay was considered a psycological disorder until the early 1980s. Then in the 1980s and 1990s it was considered to be taboo to identify as gay openly. It was not until the 00s that gays started to have some unity but believe it or not that is mostly just the white gays. Black gays did not start having unity until 2010+ after they started finding more meaning in their pride celebrations other than partying. If gays don’t want people using the word then lead by example. Black people NEVER called each other the N word. Some blacks, including myself, call each other n|gga from time to time but that is a slip up but NONE OF US use the real N word.

        It was my understanding that a gay man is simply a man that was born gay but a f.aggot is a gay man whose entire identity revolves around being gay. I can undersand why gay men would take offense to the word now I think everyone should totally stop using the word and replace it simply with the word ‘gay’. It sounds better than f.aggot and has less syllables.

      You’re late af pretending you didnt know f***** was offensive. Why play dumb, Rose?

      • Rasputia Lattimore is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating her September 15, 2018

        I am not Rose. I am Rasputia.

        It was my understanding that a gay man is simply a man that was born gay but still lives his life as a man while a f.aggot is a gay man whose entire identity revolves around being gay. Thus, I always believed not all gay men were f.aggots. Now I undersand why gay men would take offense to the word. I think everyone should totally stop using the word and replace it simply with the word ‘gay’. It sounds better than f.aggot and has less syllables. Gays should discontinue their use of the word too.

      • Caleb September 15, 2018

        If you aren’t gay you don’t need to be either 1) telling me being gay is a choice or 2) telling us if we get to use the word f***** or not as a term amongst ourselves. It’s not that hard to understand.

      • Rasputia Lattimore is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating her September 15, 2018

        Caleb 1) Being gay is certainly a choice for some and not a choice for others. Everyone that is gay was not born gay although many gays were born gay. There is not only 1 type of gay person.

        2) If the F word is offensive then EVERYONE should stop using it. People must lead by example. You would never hear black people going around calling each other the N word that ends in er. They substitute with the n|gga and my brother. White people do not go around calling each other honkies or crackers. Thus, gay people should stop using the F word if they want society to stop using the word. It is easy to just replace the F word with the word gay.

    • TheChiromancer September 15, 2018

      It doesn’t really work that way. Especially as a generalization. I’ve known and know people who identify as gay and I have never heard them use that word. So while some may, in fact, used it, it’s not the majority — and that goes for the gays and straights.

      • blookas September 15, 2018

        how about we stop using any word to describe the LGB community as a negative. You are born with your sexuality ive always been gay and it is NOT an insult. the F word i do not say because of its histoy.. but if gay men choose to use the word, that is their choice in reclaiming the word that has been used as an insult.

        its not that hard. yes it is similar to using the N word, and no the struggles are not the same.

        Eminem has been using the word forever. hes always been a homophobe and he can keep the apology

      • Rasputia Lattimore is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating her September 16, 2018

        I disagree that “you are born with your sexuality”. Humans are animals and often engage in cohabitation out of attraction not some idealistic pre-set orientation…just like animals do. Yes I do believe there are gay men and women who believe they were born gay and rightfully so I agree they were born that way too. However, I do not believe they can project their life experiences as the only depiction of being gay because that is not true. Also, LGBQ encompasses bisexual and straight people who support gays too so there is no one set type of gay. Just because you were born gay does not mean all gay people were born that way.

  3. DanYiel Iman September 14, 2018

    I never any apologies from artists who belittle folks who actually purchase their music & support them!! I’m not an Eminem fan so, he’ll never see my funds!!🤷🏽‍♂️

  4. Paulo September 14, 2018

    He regrets it so yet the verse still on the album. Eugh. Go play victim somewhere else, I can’t believe that people have cancelled Macklemore and Iggy for much less yet this fool keeps getting a pass.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 14, 2018

      Like I said he has got a media pass for 20 years straight. And it´s not just “white privilege” or whatever. Tons of white artists have been demolished too by public and media once they became too big for too long and they decided it was time to bring them down. Mariah, Britney, Xtina among others suffered terrible pressures and phases people and media wanted to mock them and that was it. And Eminem himself contributed. One of the things he became more famous in the late 90s was for making “funny” remarks about Michael Jackson, then Britney and then whoever… and then the whole Mariah case, which as a man is just ugh. How can u talk about your personal pshit with a woman like that? Nobody did anything wrong to him. #obsessed indeed.
      So I´m glad he finally had to face some backlash this last year. Still not enough.

    • Caleb September 15, 2018

      And remember that song that was unearthered from his pre-fame days in which he raps about how white girls are supposedly superior and how Black girls are “dumb” and only want money? https://genius.com/Eminem-foolish-pride-lyrics
      This is as bad as what Iggy has done in the past tbh but where is the #EminemIsCanceledParty ?

  5. IMIND September 14, 2018

    Oh please don’t make me laught. He didn’t care when he was saying homophobic things to other people, this guy is just trying to play the nice one because MGK just put his reputation to the dirt. It’s waaaay too late to apologize, bye.

  6. Achooo! September 14, 2018

    People hate what they see in themselves!

  7. mandm September 15, 2018

    Im gay, and he NEVER offended me, anyone that thinks Eminem is a homophobe lacks NUANCE.

    • Caleb September 15, 2018

      It’s not about being “offended.” It’s about the things he says being clearly anti-gay over a very long period. If you can’t see that then you are clearly blinded by your fandom.

  8. Caleb September 15, 2018

    So if we’re gonna hold it against Offset for saying “q****” we damn sure better stay mad at Eminem who has been saying far worse for decades.

    • blookas September 15, 2018

      amen. using a gay slur as an insult is never okay. same as any other slur to any other group of people. i hope all the imbeciles who think Gay is a chosen “lifestyle” has a fabulous gay child to teach them the greatest gift is unconditional gay love.
