Eminem regrets he used a homophobic slur in Kamikaze track ‘Fall’

In an interview series with Sway, Eminem discussed his disses against Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt on the Kamikaze track “Fall.”

Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a f****t, bitch,” he rapped on the song.

In the interview, Eminem expressed regret for using the homophobic insult in the song. “I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this might be too far,” he said. “Because in my quest to hurt him, I realise that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it. … It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going ‘I don’t feel right with this.'”
