Rapper Eminem has been criticized for his notorious “homophobic” lyrics and despite taking a stance in support of gay rights he is still targeted by The LGBT community.
However, it seems like Eminem is cleaning out his closet— at least in Sony Pictures’ blockbuster, The Interview where he comes out as gay.
Eminem appears for a cameo in the controversial film, The Interview, where he decided to make fun of his public persona. Eminem comes out as gay in an interview to James Franco’s character, Dave Skylark.
“I like men,” the 42-year-old rapper said. “When I say things about gay people, or people think that my lyrics are homophobic, it’s because I’m gay.”
The “Detroit Vs. Everybody” lyricist continues to make a mockery out of homophobic persona by saying, “I’m more shocked that people haven’t figured it out yet. I mean, it’s kind of like I’ve been playing gay peek-a-boo.”
Seth Rogen who plays Aaron Rapoport as a producer of “Skylark Tonight,” a popular tabloid-TV show in the film exclaims the news of Eminem coming out as “the greatest moment in gay history.”
