Billy Eichner Slams Eminem's Surprise Oscars 2020 Appearance

Billy Eichner was one of the celebrities who was not happy to see Eminem show up in a surprise performance at the 2020 Academy Awards on Sunday (February 9) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

“Well, you can still sing the word ‘f****t’ a million times and still perform at the Oscars that’s about ‘diversity.’ Mmkay,” Billy tweeted to his followers.

Eminem actually spoke in the past about his decision to use that word in his music, telling Rolling Stone, “It was more like calling someone a b*tch or a punk or a*shole,” he said. “So that word was just thrown around so freely back then…And, not saying it’s wrong or it’s right, but at this point in my career — man, I say so much sh*t that’s tongue-in-cheek.”

He continued, “I poke fun at other people, myself. But the real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all. I’m glad we live in a time where it’s really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves. And I don’t know how else to say this, I still look at myself the same way that I did when I was battling and broke.”

Eminem once admitted he went “too far” by using this slur.
