Figen Murray, whose son Martyn Hett died in the atrocity, condemned Eminem for referencing the suicide bomber in the lyrics of a controversial new track
Eminem has been slammed by the mum of one of the Manchester bombing victims over his sickening rap about the terror attack.
In new track Unaccommodating, the hip-hop star, 47, made sickening references to the atrocity at Ariana Grande’s concert in the city in 2017.
In the song, Eminem raps: “But I plan to shout ‘bombs away’ on the game / Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.”
The lyrics have now been condemned by Figen Murray, whose son Martyn Hett, 29, died in the bombing.
She called the star out over the move, calling it “not clever” and “totally pointless”.
When Twitter user told her about the reference to the concert in the track, Murray wrote: “That would be a real shame if he did that.”
She then added: “Ok, I just watched the 11 min clip. Feels like he is piggybacking on the fame of Ariana grande and Justin bieber and says distasteful things about other celebrities. Not clever.
“Totally pointless. And before all Eminem fans pounce on me, I am not interested and will not engage.”
The rapper has been attracted widespread criticism over the lyrics, with fans flocking to Twitter to condemn him.
One wrote: “Eminem is truly pathetic, a weedy, middle aged, rich white man who tries to be rebellious by comparing himself to an Islamic bomber.
“This is what he thinks of as cutting edge, when all he has to do is say white privilege theory is bulls**t to make the feathers fly.”
Another added: “Get all the free publicity off the back of a suicide bomber you wanted? you low life bottom feeder! @Eminem . Here’s hoping you never step foot in [Britain] #Eminem .”
Martyn was one of 22 people killed by suicide bomber Abedi at Manchester Arena on May 22, 2017, with another 50 were left injured.
The blast ripped through the venue as fans were making their way out following the end of Ariana’s concert.
It’s the second time Eminem has sparked fury by rapping about the terror attack.
In a rap battle last year, he declared: “Squashed in between a brainwashing machine“Like an Islamic regime, a jihadist extreme radical Suicide bomber that’s seeing
“Ariana Grande sing her last song of the evening And as the audience from the damn concert is leaving
“Detonates the device strapped to his abdominal region I’m not gonna finish that, for obvious reasons.”
