Last Friday (Jan. 17), Eminem dropped a surprise album for his fans titled "Music To Be Murdered By." One song on the project "Unaccommodating," is causing some backlash for the Detroit MC as he references the bombing in Manchester at an Ariana Grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people. "But I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game/Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting," He raps before explosion sounds occur on the song.
The lyrics quickly caught the ears of people outside of his own fanbase, one being Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham who jumped in to express his feelings about it, "This is unnecessarily hurtful and deeply disrespectful to the families and all those affected," the Mayor said about Eminem's lyrics.

As Eminem was trending on Twitter Friday of the release, people on the platform also expressed how they felt about the lyrics, "Eminem really said in his new song 'unaccommodating' the lyrics 'bombs away like I'm at an ariana grande concert' and proceeded after with gunshots/explosions mocking manchester.. i am disgusted how did he or his team think this was okay? he's trash," one Twitter user said.
