Eminem and controversy go together like Chris Brown and arrest warrants, so it’s not a huge surprise that the hip-hop star managed to raise the ire of a lot of people with his Veteran’s Day performance this week. Em took part in HBO’s “Concert For Valor” in D.C., to honor U.S. military veterans, but a lot of viewers didn’t appreciate Em’s profanity-laced set.
“Pretty strange to hear Eminem swearing up a storm as the grand finale to thank our vets. So much anger and hostility is those F-bombs,” tweeted one viewer.
“Turning off HBO after all the swearing coming out of EMINEM..they cld have put him on later … after kids like myself have gone to sleep,” added a mother.
“Turning off HBO after all the swearing coming out of EMINEM … they cld have put him on later..after kids like myself have gone to sleep,” tweeted a fan.
Pundit Donna Brazile also was taken aback by Em’s language.
“I can’t find the bleeper on my remote control. #Eminem brings #Detroit to #DC. #bam,” she tweeted.
