Report: Eminem banned from Hyde Park due to "offensive lyrics"

According to the UK’s The Mirror, Eminem has been banned from Hyde Park due to his “offensive lyrics”.

Did they originally think he rhymed about candy bars?

Here’s the excerpt from The Mirror:

Hyde Park bosses banned Eminem from performing a summer festival because of his “offensive” and “unsuitable” lyrics, new documents reveal.

London Mayor Boris Johnson was even asked to overturn the decision but his office admitted they had no idea who the rapper was.

The revelations are contained in a series of emails and letters following a Freedom of Information request by the Mirror.

Promoters AEG are thought to have agreed terms with the rapper to play the British Summer Time festival this month.

But Royal Parks, who run Hyde Park, vetoed the decision saying his performance could upset other park users.

Royal Parks CEO Linda Lennon said in an email: “This artist flagged risks across the board. In particular in respect of our public reputation.”

Come on, guys. He isn’t that vulgar. Okay, maybe he is. I don’t think he cares, though.
