Eminem is slammed over ‘disgusting’ Megan Thee Stallion shooting reference in new single Houdini as fans brand him ‘pathetic’

Eminem is under fire for rapping about Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting in his latest track Houdini.

The online drama began after the 51-year-old rapper dropped the lead single off his upcoming 12th studio album The Death of Slim Shady on Friday.

Critics honed in on a lyric that appears to reference the 2020 incident where the Hiss hitmaker was shot in the feet by Tory Lanez.

‘If I was to ask for Megan Thee Stallion if she would collab with me/Would I really have a shot at a feat?’ Eminem sings.

The backlash quickly ensued on social media, with fans condemning the Oscar winner for seemingly poking fun at Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘traumatic’ experience.

‘F*** this guy. Men love to bring up traumatic moments in women’s lives for attention. Leave Megan alone,’ posted a fan.

‘This is so random & disgusting did he think he ate or something?’ one wrote, as another chimed in, ‘This is such low hanging fruit. It’s so unbelievably pathetic.’

An X user shared: ‘Eminem’s career has largely been built on being shocking and provocative to certain audiences … Being 51 years old and taking shots at Megan Thee Stallion? Out of touch.’

Another criticized Eminem for targeting Megan Thee Stallion despite being a father himself.

‘So Eminem returns with SLIM SHADY & jumps right into the TORY LANEZ & MEGAN THEE STALLION drama. UHN UHN EM – it’s a NO for me. This worked in the 2000’s with your counterparts but a play on words with someone’s trauma & a black woman at that …

‘I can’t support it. As old as you are – I know you know you better ( or at least you should ) You have a daughter – a grown married daughter at that,’ they wrote.

The digs continued, as one of Megan’s fans shared: ‘This man really using female rap beef to cling onto his declining career I’m cringe.’

Megan wasn’t the only celeb mentioned on Houdini, as Eminem also takes aim at famous drag queen RuPaul, Sherri Papini, who is accused of faking her own kidnapping and the disgraced R. Kelly.

The Houdini music video pays homage to Eminem’s 2002 hit Without Me.

He plays multiple versions of his past self — including his iconic bleach blond buzzcut Slim Shady era — in the near shot-for-shot remake.

He was ordered to complete 50 hours of community service and 12 hours of traffic school in order to avoid a criminal offense for crashing his Mercedes into a home in Beverly Hills in March 2023.

Pete checked himself into an in-patient treatment facility that July to address mental health issues.

In the music video, Pete reassures Eminem that he’s ‘a great driver’ as he takes over the wheel from Dr. Dre.

‘Don’t worry. I just got my license back!’ he say before slamming his foot on the gas.
