Mother of Leah Betts brands the rapper "irresponsible" for singing about ecstasy and cocaine...

EMINEM has been slammed by the mother of LEAH BETTS, the teenager whose death after taking an ecstasy tablet prompted a nationwide anti-drugs campaign.

Janet Betts has urged broadcasters to boycott the rapper’s new single ‘Purple Hills’, which was recorded with D-12, and refers to taking ecstasy and cocaine. The album version of the song is titled ‘Purple Pills’.

She told The Sun newspaper today (June 16) that the rapper – who appears to take an ecstasy tablet during his stage show – was “irresponsible”. She said: “This man is an icon to teenagers, they will heard this and think it’s cool to take drugs.”
