Eminem has come under fire from Rihanna’s fans after he allegedly shows his support for Chris Brown over the 2009 beat down on the Barbadian songstress. In a new leaked audio, the Slim Shady says, “I’d side with Chris Brown, I’d beat down a b***h too.”
According to Insider, the seven-second snippet titled “Things Get Worse (Rihanna Diss)” was first posted online by a Reddit user on Sunday, November 3. The leaked audio is believed to be from an unreleased version of a song that made it onto B.o.B’s 2011 song, titled “Things Get Worse”.
As of Monday, the snippet was still up online and many of Rihanna’s fans have expressed their anger at the rapper for supporting Chris over the infamous abuse. They took to Twitter to lash out at the Missouri-born emcee, who has collaborated with Rih on 2010’s song “Love the Way You Lie” and another song released in 2013 titled “The Monster”.
“two of eminem’s three #1 hits this decade have rihanna on the hook and he wants to go and say some vile st like this… yikes,” one blasted the rapper for saying bad things about his former collaborator. A Rihanna fan account similarly criticized the 47-year-old, “eminem grown a really glorifying rihanna abuse for a damn song after my fav lend her vocals to numerous songs for him is disgusting.”
The account’s administrator continued slamming Eminem, “I’m tired these male in the industry say she deserve to get abuse it’s disgusting.” The said user added in other posts, “stfu he can dissed his momma all he wants idc but what he not gonna do is make a mockery of rih domestic abuse. I don’t give a f**k if he dissed his own momma making a mockery of abuse for punchline is trash.”
Neither Eminem nor Rihanna has responded to his alleged diss on her in the leaked audio.
Prior to this, another leaked audio revealed Eminem asks what would happen if he came out as gay. The never-before-heard collaboration between the Slim Shady and “I’m Not Racist” hitmaker Joyner Lucas features lines by Joyner which read, “What if I told you I’m out of place?/ Wait, what if I told you that I was gay?” Eminem then replies, “What if I’m a hypocrite who’s just afraid to face truth?/ Wait, what if I told you I’m gay too?”
