Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds Slams Eminem for Using F-Word

Imagine Dragons lead singer and LGBTQ ally Dan Reynolds is speaking out to slam Eminem for using a gay slur in a song on his new album Kamikaze.

In the song “Fall,” Eminem calls out rapper Tyler the Creator, who has alluded to being gay in his songs.

“Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a fa—t, bitch / It’s not just ’cause you lack attention / It’s because you worship D12′s balls, you’re sack-religious / If you’re gonna critique me, you better at least be as good or better,” Eminem raps in the song.

Dan is an outspoken ally for the LGBTQ community and he even started the LoveLoud Festival to support out members of the Mormon community.

“it’s never ok to say a word that is filled with hate. I don’t care what year you were born in or what meaning it has to you. if it contributes to hate and bigotry then it is hateful. period. there is never an ok time to say the word fa**ot. I don’t care who you are,” Dan tweeted after the song’s release.

Dan recently showed off his eight pack abs during a concert with his band.

    People are so sensitice about the gay community. Its not a nice word but this is rap its not sugar coatted soft pink rainbow for all pop/rock. You go in in rap songs when you diss someone. Its not for the faint of heart.

    Stay in your lane Dan, do what you do best… it’s not up for debate.

    This shit is getting ridiculous. Next thing u know the word bitch and the n-word will be banned too. U got your gay rights, now go get married and stop complaining “Mr 8pack abs”

  • Lexi

    Em has been doing this since the start. Straight, Gay, short, fat, man or woman, etc,everyone is a target. So why is it only now after countless music releases does Dan have an issue with it. Could it perhaps be that he knows it would get attention for him?

    Sorry but Em has already been there and done that when this guy was still in his dads ball sack…I dont think he really wants to go there with him..

  • RED_Mangosteen

    now em would have more material for his next album and maybe more gay reference. there was a time when gay was an insult, i miss those days.

  • Broom Hilda

    Everybody looks better than you. You look like a dead cat

  • Anthony Rodriguez

    I’m sure he does. Never said anything about how he looks. But if we’re Goin there then I’m sure there’s millions of people who look better than you. XD

    You sound mentally impaired.

  • Anthony Rodriguez

    Why because I can spell correctly and k ow how to voice my opinion? Makes alot of sense. Maybe u are the one that’s mentally impaired.

  • J.K.

    “U got your gay rights” isn’t an opinion, it’s flat out ignorance

  • Anthony Rodriguez

    It’s the truth though. They fought so hard for their rights to get married, and they got it. Now it’s time to for everyone to just stop being so damn sensitive all the time. Funny how u say what I said made me sound “mentally challenged”, what if I actually was? Then how would u feel?

  • Chris Lowry

    What makes this song any different. I’m 48 and I still like some of his early years. I assume none of you have listened to the early stuff because he makes those references in several songs. It’s just a song!

  • Chris Lowry

    No he doesn’t!

  • Chris Lowry

    That is really effed up. Gay people are no different then anyone else. Quit commenting like you have some knowledge about being gay. I’ve had a few gay friends and I loved them each in spite of whom they sleep with. People like you and of your same opinion is going to bore you in the ass. Take that to the

  • Kat

    Why are you comment in my comment then ?
    I’m a part of the soft pink rainbows for all type that got offended ? No.

  • Anthony Rodriguez

    Wtf are u even talking about. I never said anything bad about gay people. I said the band sucks. I’m sure theirs music acts u don’t like too. People like u are why I don’t really care for social media.
