"(TW) Eminem really said in his new song "unaccommodating" the lyrics "bombs away like I'm at an ariana grande concert" and proceeded after with gunshots/explosions mocking manchester. i am disgusted how did he or his team think this was okay? he's trash", wrote one Twitter user.

"But I'm contemplating yelling "Bombs away" on the game/Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting", Em raps on the track. Eminem ignored him publicly and left him to be rudiculed by the fans. One of the songs that jumpstarted conversations surrounding the new project is "Unaccommodating", a Young M.A-featured track on which the Detroit rapper makes light of the tragic bombing of an Ariana Grande concert almost three years ago.

Her comments were echoed by Grande's fans, who called Eminem's lyrics "a pathetic attempt to get attention".

Eminem may not be the Master of Suspense: He just dropped his new album, "Music to Be Murdered By," Thursday at midnight, without even milking it with any prior warning.

The Detroit rapper's new music video for "Darkness", one of the album's 20 tracks, depicts a shooting at a concert.

The folks over at YoLeaks made renders based on the patents that'll give you an idea of what the phones could look like. Looks like, the company is working on two new phones, both with dual-sided displays that wrap around the body.

The video ends with a montage of news reports from recent mass shootings, captioned: "When will it end?"

Eminem then urges fans to register to vote in the upcoming United States elections, writing: "Make your voice heard and help change gun laws in America".

"Unlike Hitchcock's vintage album, which featured not a single "feature", Eminem's surprise release credits the late Juice Wrld, Ed Sheeran, Skylar Grey, Royce Da 5'9", White Gold, Young M.A, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Denaun, KXNG Crooked and Joell Ortiz as well as the unbilled Hitch.

A link to the music video on Eminem's website encourages viewers to contact or visit several gun violence prevention organizations, including Everytown for Gun Safety and Sandy Hook Promise.

At the time of writing, he had not responded to the criticism over Unaccommodating, and the BBC has contacted his publicists.
