Eminem isn’t afraid of controversy, and the single he just dropped Thursday night is more proof than anyone probably needed.

“Untouchable” is a searing indictment of white privilege and a defense of the black community, and the artist also known as Marshall Mathers infuses every line with biting anger. 

Proof that the cut hit a nerve is easily found on its Youtube homepage—almost 2 million views in less than 24 hours. 

Many social media reactions have been positive.


There were some less positive opinions, ranging from mild criticism to outright dislike. 


So not everyone is 100% happy, that’s for sure. 

But love him or hate him, it’s hard to deny the fact that Eminem always seems to speak with ferocious honesty.
