Eminem surprised fans Thursday night by tweeting news of the release of his 11th album. "It's your funeral..." the rapper wrote. It's "Music to be Murdered by," and no one saw it coming.

"Music to be Murdered by" quickly became controversial after its release because of lyrics in the song "Unaccommodating" that reference the bombing of Ariana Grande's Manchester concert.
"But I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting," Eminem raps on the song.
A suicide bomber killed 22 people outside the singer's concert in the English city in 2017.

Rapper Eminem's new album 'Music to be Murdered by' is hugely criticized




The lyric feels particularly egregious, given that Eminem pledged his support to victims of the bombing in 2017; and urged fans to donate money to families who had been affected.

The Manchester Arena bombing was a suicide bombing attack in Manchester, United Kingdom on 22 May 2017. A radical Islamist detonated a shrapnel-laden homemade bomb as people were leaving the Manchester Arena following a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande.

Twenty-three people died, including the attacker, and 139 were wounded, more than half of them children. Several hundred more suffered psychological trauma. The bomber was Salman Ramadan Abedi, a 22-year-old local man of Libyan ancestry. After initial suspicions of a terrorist network, police later said they believed Abedi had largely acted alone but that others had been aware of his plans.

The incident was the deadliest terrorist attack and the first suicide bombing in the United Kingdom since the 7 July 2005 London bombings.
