Has Eminem fallen victim to the infamous Twitter cancellation culture? It appears as if the rapper has jangled Gen Z's nerves with the lyrics of one of his songs. The rapper has come under fire for his "offensive" lyrics in the song 'Love the Way you Lie' with Rihanna, which debuted a decade ago. 

Twitter is flooded with angry tweets from a large number of users who are determined to cancel Eminem for encouraging "domestic violence" through his lyrics. But his fans don't seem to stop backing him despite all the hate from Gen Z as they've been requesting the singer to come up with a dis track on the Twitter trend, to which many celebrities have fallen prey, sometimes for no apparent reason.

What do the lyrics say and why does Twitter want to cancel him?

Eminem got entangled in the issue when one TikTok user pointed out that the lyrics of 'Love the Way You Lie' were problematic. The lyrics towards the end of the song are, "If she ever tries to fucking leave again. I'mma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire." The song is from Eminem's seventh studio album 'Recovery'. Reportedly, the rapper wrote the verses and chose Rihanna to sing it. It is also said that the duo created the song based on their past experiences in difficult relationships. 

While the song touches upon several issues pertaining to a romantic relationship, Gen Z is of the opinion that the lyrics promote violence. Soon, a considerable number of Twitter users took to the platform to cancel Eminem.
