Eminem has come under fire over his new single "Berzerk," in which the rapper criticizes Khloe Kardashian's appearance.
The 4:08 long song, which debuted on Tuesday, is the first single off of Eminem's upcoming eighth studio album Marshall Mathers LP 2 (MMLP2). The rapper, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, took a shot at Kardashian, 29, which outraged her fans.
"They say that love is as powerful as cough syrup and styrofoam / All I know is I fell asleep and woke up in that Monte Carlo / With the ugly Kardashian — Lamar O. Sorry, yo, we done both set the bar low," Emenim raps.
While fans of the Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist have defended the song lyrics, critics have argued on social networking site Twitter that the Kardashian diss is in poor taste.
"So disgusting and NOT funny. Isn't Eminem a father? Imagine if some fool said that about your daughter?? #stupid," one Twitter user wrote.
"The fact that Eminem called Khloe Kardashian ugly is horrible. She is so beautiful and funny," another wrote.
"I think it's hilarious how eminem called khloe kardashian ugly when in reality she's the pretty one," a Kardashian fan tweeted.
Some critics have questioned the timing of Eminem's song release and whether the rapper, 40, may have targeted Kardashian purely for publicity.
The reality TV star, who has been married to NBA star Lamar Odom for three years, continues to make headlines over her strained marriage to the free agent, 33. In recent weeks reports of an affair and addiction rumors have made her and Odom hot topics in entertainment news and critics are speculating whether Eminem, who has not released an album in three years, may be taking advantage of this.
"MMLP2," which was produced by the rapper himself along with Dr. Dre, No ID and Rick Rubin, is scheduled for release on Nov. 5, 2013.
