Manchester mayor Andy Burnham publicly slammed Eminem his lyrics about the 2017 bomb attack in the British city.

"I'm contemplating yelling 'bombs away' on the game/Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting," Em raps. His lyric is followed by the sound of a bomb exploding.

In 2017, a suicide bomber attacked a crowd after Grande's gig at Manchester Arena in May 2017. The attack killed 22 innocent people.

 "This is unnecessarily hurtful and deeply disrespectful to the families and all those affected," Burnham told BBC News in a statement. 

The mother of one of the victims from the bombing also had some choice words for the rapper. Figen Murray's son Martyn Hett died in the attack called the lyrics "distasteful."

"Feels like he is piggybacking on the fame of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber and says distasteful things about other celebrities," she wrote on Twitter.

"Not clever. Totally pointless. And before all Eminem fans pounce on me, I am not interested and will not engage."
