(TargetLiberty.org) – Conservatives have criticized rapper Eminem after he sent a cease-and-desist letter to stop 2024 GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy from using any of his songs in his campaign.
Music publisher BMI in a letter sent to the campaign’s lawyers disclosed that Marshall B. Mathers, III, also known as Eminem objected to the usage of his music in the political campaign of Ramaswamy. They added that the performance of any of Eminem’s music following this letter would be considered a “material breach of the agreement.”
The content of the letter was included in a report by the Daily Mail. In 2020 Eminem had endorsed President Biden in 2020 was blasted by conservatives on social media over his decision to object to the usage of his music by Ramaswamy.
Mike Cernovich, a political commentator even posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, “Lmao what a gigantic baby,” in reference to Eminem.
Other users were also quick to point out that Eminem had in the past supported anti-war messages which is similar to the position held by the GOP presidential candidate.
As Greg Price, the State Freedom Caucus Network Comms Director pointed out before the 2004 election, Eminem had put out a song against Bush called “Mosh,” and yet now he is upset that the most anti-war candidate in the GOP had sung one of his songs.
Eminem’s representatives have not yet responded to these comments.
Tricia McLaughlin, a spokesperson for Ramaswamy’s campaign stated that the presidential candidate had just “cut loose” on stage but that from now on all the rapping would be left “to the real slim shady.”
