10 Times Eminem’s Lyrics Got Him Into Trouble

1. Gay Bashing

While he’s mellowed out over the years (kind of), Eminem was never more aggressive than he was on his debut album The Marshall Mathers LP. The rapper spends a few verses of the song insulting gay people, even saying “[Do I] hate fags? The answer’s ‘yes.'”

In later interviews, Eminem said that, contrary to his lyrics, he’s “cool with” the gay community, as seen by his friendship with openly-gay Elton John.

Being “cool with” Slim Shady is quite the feat, especially considering how he almost got his ex-wife to ice herself with some choice lyrics.
