Troye Sivan Calls Out Eminem Over His Homophobic Lyrics
18 September 2018, 10:26
Troye Sivan has responded to Eminem's use of the f-word in his latest song, saying "Some words are not meant for anyone".
So when he spoke to Variety about Eminem's use of the f-word in his new song 'Kamikaze', Troye had a few things to say.
The singer - who announced he was gay five years ago - said "I just feel like some words are not meant for everyone, or for anyone. It's not that hard to respect that, so I just hope that people do."
Troye continued, saying that the repeated use of this language should be "taken really seriously".
The 8 Mile rapper admitted he went "too far", when using the f-word to describe Tyler, The Creator, in his song 'Kamikaze', to which Troye said "I would love to believe that if the person showed enough genuine remorse and understanding of how they've hurt people and actively made strides to correct that — I would like to believe I can be fine with that person."
In the past, Eminem has defended his use of language in his lyrics. After using similar terms on 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', Eminem said "I poke fun at other people, myself. But the real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all."
