Eminem had his performance from the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards bleeped last night when the show was broadcast on BET because it included a reference to his dick in relation to rape.
The BET show featured rappers, including KRS-One, Wale, Nicki Minaj and Joe Budden trading verses and rhymes. Mos Def, Black Thought and Eminem passed the mic in one of three segments, and Eminem’s short verse that was bleeped included a claim that his dick was so big that when he raped somebody they were actually “into it”. The audience gasped as Eminem/Slim Shady finished his rhyme.
BET is owned by Viacom, the parent company of MTV and VH1, who regularly censor videos and performers whose lyrics feature violent images.
