Eminem Reportedly Deemed Too Controversial For Hyde Park

Eminem was reportedly deemed too "controversial" for Hyde Park due to lyrics that "have been accused of being homophobic, provocative and pretty sweary," a source tells The Mirror.

Eminem is slated to perform in London's Wembley Stadium, but the Detroit, Michigan rapper is not scheduled to perform at Hyde Park in England. A source recently told The Mirror why the Hyde Park performance is not set to be part of the emcee's itinerary. 

“Eminem is a controversial artist, whose lyrics have been accused of being homophobic, provocative and pretty sweary," the source said. “So there has been some debate about whether The Royal Parks will rubber-stamp any agreement to play there.

“He’s a huge name, and would be a great draw for fans, but it may not be the right image for the parks if he’s effing and blinding on stage,” the source added.

Eminem is slated to perform in London's Wembley Stadium, reportedly as the first rapper to headline the venue. Eminem addressed this matter in an Instagram post the rapper recently made. The image he posted features "Never Mind Hyde Park" and it informs fans of the July 11 Wembley Stadium set. 

The Libertines, Black Sabbath and Tom Jones are set to perform in Hyde Park at the BST Festival.

      @Colestar you ever witnessed racism in the us first hand . I highly doubt it . Yes there is racism in the us it's in any country any land .. But folks here in the Us From the south .. Are some of the least racist people you gonna meet ... The ones you think are the worst kind are actually nice peeps ;) ijs

    • @colestar

      How do u kno the dude is American? From what I know the English are not liked worldwide because of how many countries they have ruined through slavery and their constant quest to conquer, which has left so many countries war torn to this day. There is racism in every country but it doesnt mean our governments were mass murderers and slavers like the English.

      U aint wrong the British are Evil. The Americans are Stupid and Evil.

    • ColeStar

      You are unbelievably ignorant. LOL at calling the UK's history shameful. Yeah, lots of it is, but America's isn't? As a black person I'm far happier living here than I am in the USA. There is racism here, but trust me, your country has it down on lock.
