One of the greatest ever to touch the mic, Eminem is known for being outspoken and he has been slammed on various occasions for 'spreading hate' via his offensive lyrics. However, it seems the hip-hop legend, who most recently became the target of Twitter’s cancel culture over his lyrics, has gone “tone-deaf” on the haters.

Gen Z had most recently tried to cancel the 48-year-old rap icon on TikTok and Twitter over encouraging “domestic violence” through his lyrics in the hit 2010 song with Rihanna ‘Love the Way You Lie’. The lyrics, “If she ever tries to f**king leave again. I'mma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire” made the social media users furious, the reason why Gen Z tried to cancel the ‘Lose Yourself ‘hitmaker in the first place. A lot of his loyal fans were also requesting him to drop a diss track and it appears Eminem did answer their prayer. With an intention to give it back to the cancel culture, he released an animated lyric video of his 2020 song ‘Tone Deaf’ from the album ‘Music to be Murdered By, Side B.’

‘A nice “f**k you” to gen Z... love to see it’

The hip-hop heavyweight enjoys a massive fan following globally and therefore, a lot of his fans came out in support on Twitter to slam Gen Z. One user stated, “Wait.... Now I'm sceptical if the whole TicTok and Twitter "cancel" thing was even real or just a way He promoted for this shit! Cuz remember when He used the clip of Him on Sport Center for "Higher" and everybody thought it was a real thing til the video dropped?” One felt it was right for Emimen to drop the animated lyric video of ‘Tone Deaf’ and said, “A nice "f**k you" to gen Z... love to see it.” Another added, “Millennials be like “This s**t fire, f**k Gen Z".”

One user said, “Gen z cancel @Eminem yeah right it's not happening will the #ToneDeaf” whereas, the next one posted, “I love how he isn’t afraid to be vulnerable and emotionally raw regardless of what he talks about. He’s authentic and stand up for what he believes.” One user added, “I told my friends the other day (I should've posted it) watch #Eminem drop something new since #GenZ wants to cancel him. 2 days later I never saw this coming. Eminem is so quick to flip off his haters I love it. Don't like his s**t? Don't listen then, period. #ToneDeaf
