A friend tells me he saw this on Rainbow network, although I can't get the link to work now...

This link here

quote:
Meanwhile, Eminem has confirmed his anti-gay stance by telling Rolling Stone magazine that has no problem using the word "faggot" as a term for gays but he would never again use the word "nigger" to describe blacks.

The N-word is "a word I don't feel comfortable with, it wouldn't sound right coming out of my mouth, he told the magazine.

But "faggot" isn't so bad: "If you're using the word in the way of calling them a name, that's different than a racial slur to me."


It's no surprise to me then that "50 Cent" says he is such an ardent admirer of Mathers they're both such accomplished purveyors of IRONY.

FUCK THEM BOTH

Listen, the guy made a video that criticized the establishment. If that doesn't buy him the right to call a few homosexuals "faggots", then what does? Does he have to make a second video criticizing the establishment?? Isn't that setting the bar just a little high for the guy?

Nah, Jack Layton told him he could just abstain.

Eminem knows that offending black fans is a financial suicide for him. He probably thinks offending his somewhat miniscule gay fan base is alright...Drag Kings everywhere, stop impersonating the mofo

Yeah. My friend Ben Dover does Eminem in drag, and it makes me sad.
