Washington (ANI): American actor Nick Cannon has accused rapper Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers III, of "racial bigotry" after the latter made a derogatory new track mentioning Mariah Carey. Cannon, 28, who married Carey, 39, last year, is furious with Eminem, 36, for putting his and his wife's name in a controversial song, which is featured on his latest album 'Relapse'.
In his latest LP, Eminem had recorded Bagpipes From Baghdad, and in it he comments on his alleged romance with Carey - one that she vehemently denies. "Nick Cannon better back the f**k up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk. Nick Cannon, you pr**k, I wish you luck with that f**kin' whore," Contactmusic quoted Eminem as rapping in the track.
But Cannon isn't going to let the star get away with his comments - vowing that Eminem's words will have "repercussions".
"A mediocre (at best) Eminem record that sounds like it was written in 2001. At first, I thought it was old material that had been dug up from when dude 'fantasised' about having a pretend fling with Mariah. ... But all of a sudden I hear my name in the verse! My first reaction was like, 'This is his new s**t? Wow, that's too bad'," he wrote on his blog.
"Maybe I'm going too far, but I thought we got past the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it. What's next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed.
"Calling my wife a 'c**t' and a 'whore' is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served. Anybody got Al Sharpton's number?! So, Miss Marshall, I'm going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife. This is going to be fun!
It's however you want it! Just remember, you did this to yourself! Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to corny-ass Nick Cannon!" he added.
The blog, which featured on Cannon's official website, has since been taken down due to an overload of comments.
