US rapper Eminem has provoked outrage on social media after releasing a track that appears to make light of the Manchester Arena bombing at an Ariana Grande concert, featuring the lyrics “bombs away.”
Hours after releasing his new album ‘Music To Be Murdered By’ on Twitter, Eminem faced an angry backlash regarding one particular song titled, ‘Unaccommodating,’ in which he addresses his feud with fellow US rapper Machine Gun Kelly.
It features the line: “But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting,” against a backdrop of bomb sounds.

Twenty-two people were killed in the Manchester terrorist attack at the close of an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017, when British-born Salman Abedi detonated a bomb — killing himself in the process.
The lyrics have infuriated many people on social media who found it “f***ing disgusting” that the 47-year-old rapper would make a “joke” about such a horrific incident.

Others online posted gifs to express their horror at the provocative lyrics.
