Eminem has been highly criticized by openly gay musicians for composing his 'Rap God' song using homophobic slurs.

Gay hip-hop singer Solomon said in a statement that even though the lyrics of the single are not directly aimed at the gay community, they do include words like f****t, which degrade another man, the New York Daily News reported.

Solomon said that the song insists that the worst thing a man can be is gay and it sends out a wrong message to young kids, both gay and straight.

Rapper LastO, who is also openly gay, added that Eminem is a bit old to use words like gay, f****t and s*** as an insult.
