WTF Pop Culture News of the Week: Odd Future Out, Eminem In.

February 13, 2014

WTF Pop Culture News of the Week

I decided to stop being a hypocritical feminist and kick pretend boyfriend Eminem to the pretend curb. He’s pretend sad.

In all seriousness, we have a very real “WTF”  to add this week. Apparently the group Odd Future, who were set to perform in New Zealand with Eminem, have been banned from entering the country.

This is Odd Future:

The official word stated, “Odd Future has been deemed to be a potential threat to public order and the public interest for several reasons, including incidents at past performances in which they have incited violence.” Oh. Ok. What about the white guy? The one with the very same violent and misogynist lyrics? Is he allowed in? Yes?

In response, Eminem’s manager, Paul Rosenberg pushed out an eye-rolling tweet.

Excellent! Never shall the government suppress artists who promote rape in their lyrics! I wonder why Paul and Eminem aren’t taking, you know, an actual stance and boycotting the event to protest what anyone with two eyeballs could conclude to be a racist decision.

The revolution will apparently begin and end on Twitter for Shady Records.
