 Eminem has come under fire after being accused of wearing a “blackface mask” by rapper Lord Jamar.

Rapper Lord, Jamar, posed several old photographs of Eminem wearing the mask at the MTV 2000 Europe Music Awards.

He tweeted: “Hey @eminem please put this in context for me…I’m trying to understand why you’d be clowning in a BLACKFACE MASK backstage at the MTV AWARDS? You should come on the YANADAMEEN GODCAST so we can discuss this among other things. #weneedanswers,” the wrapper wrote in his caption.

At the time of the photo, Eminem was on tour in America and couldn’t accept the award in person. Sending a pre recorded acceptance speech, Eminem also appeared in a second video at the time wearing what appeared to be a Will Smith mask in which he apologised to fans for missing out on the show. Lord Jamar said he still didn’t think it was appropriate for Eminem to be wearing the mask.

He went on: “If it is a WILL SMITH MASK, what gives this WHITEBOY the right to wear it? Especially in EUROPE where he knew he could get away with it, also if it’s NO PROBLEM then why have these pics been hidden up until now?” the rapper wrote in the comments section of his Instagram. The two rappers have been involved in a beef for some years ever since Eminem called the rapper on ‘Fall’ from his surprise album, ‘Kamikaze’ last year. Eminem has yet to comment on Lord Jamar’s post.
