This post came out after Manchester cities Mayor, Andy Burnham, released a statement addressed to BBC where he mentioned that the lyrics of the song are unnecessarily hurtful and are in a way deeply disrespectful to people and the families who lost their loved ones in the shooting.

Eminem in his song sings 'But I'm contemplating yelling "bombs away" on the game like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting,' in his track Unaccommodating. This is the line which caused controversy for the Rap God.
