Gen Z has taken a break from criticizing skinny jeans and side-parts because they’ve recently discovered that some Eminem lyrics were a little extreme. They now want him cancelled. Because that’s what you do, right?
to everyone that is canceling him I literally love u😁♬ love the way you lie – sam
Realizing that the characters in Em’s songs could be violent, they want him expunged. His collaboration with Rihanna on “Love the Way You Lie” was the trigger for some, specifically the line “‘If she ever tries to f**king leave again / I’mma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire.” Gee, wait until they hear “Stan.”
So now there’s an online war between Gen Z (those born between 1997 and 2002) and the Millennials (b. 1980-1996) who made Em a superstar.
Boomers, off the hook for this one, can’t wait to see what this pans out.
