"Fag? Is this really recovery talk or are you running your own program these days?" George tweeted according to HipHopDX. "Really unhelpful."
The former Culture Club singer also commented about the media's reception of the track.
"Isn't it sad how the media just accepts abuse of gay people? #fucked."
The song does contain gay slurs. In the first verse, Em is heard rapping, "I'll still be able to break a motherfuckin' table over the back of a couple of faggots and crack it in half," while the second verse includes the line: "You fags are all the same."
And that's only the beginning. "Rap God" also includes lyrics like "Little gay-looking boy / So gay I can barely say it with a straight face-looking boy / You witnessing massacre like you watching a church gathering taking place-looking boy / 'Oy vey, that boy's gay,' that's all they say looking-boy / You take a thumbs up, pat on the back, the way you go from your label every day-looking boy."
Throughout his career, Eminem has received a great deal of criticism for his music containing gay slurs.
In 2001, Em performed a duet of his single "Stan" with openly gay singer Elton John, and because Eminem had been known for his gay slurs, the advocacy group GLAAD subsequently issued a statement calling not only Eminem's music, but also his collaboration with Elton John, "hateful."
In 2010, Eminem told New York Times Magazine, "I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want." That same year, CNN/CBS' Anderson Cooper, asked Eminem in a 60 Minutes interview if he didn't like gay people.
Em replied, “The scene that I came up in, that word was thrown around so much, you know? F****t was, like, it was thrown around constantly, to each other, like in battling, you know what I mean?”
