In a series of tweets, Bon Iver singer Justin Vernon announced that he will try to “kill” a new Eminem song with an anti-gay slur.

At issue is the track “Fall” on Eminem’s new album Kamikaze, which was released last Friday.

Vernon’s vocals appear on “Fall,” and Eminem calls a gay man a “faggot” in that song too.

“Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a faggot, bitch,” Eminem raps. He was referring to Tyler, the Creator, who last year discussed his high school boyfriend.

Vernon said that he was not in the studio when Eminem was recording “Fall,” and said that he was “not a fan.”

He then said, “It is certainly not the time for slurs.”

Those tweets got several responses from fans who said that it’s hip hop, this is Eminem, and, really, Vernon should have known what he was getting into.

He was perhaps responding to those people when he wrote that he was “wrong” and “we are gonna kill this track.”

Vernon has not explained what that means or how he can get the track killed.

Eminem has not commented on the matter.
