Rapper's new video is labelled 'inappropriate and disrespectful'…
The rapper ridicules Michael Jackson in the ‘Just Lose It’ video by poking fun at his reputed plastic surgery and an accident he suffered when his hair caught fire during a Pepsi commercial in 1984, BBC news reports.
“I’ve admired Eminem as an artist, and was shocked by this.
“The video was inappropriate and disrespectful to me, my children, my family, and the community at large.”
In the video, the rapper dresses up as Michael Jackson and is shown on a bed with young boys. His hair also catches fire and his nose falls off.
US cable’s Black Entertainment Network is the first channel to ban it outright.
President of the network, Robert Johnson pulled the video on the grounds that “it was inappropriate to disparage a celebrity”.
Michael Jackson is now urging other TV stations to do the same.
Eminem’s spokesperson said he was “sorry” the BEN decided to pull the single.
‘Just Lose It’ is the first single to be taken from Eminem’s forthcoming album ‘Encore’.
