#RIPEminem trends on Twitter, but he’s not dead

One Twitter user started a panic on Tuesday evening...

Eminem’s fans were left worrying for the rapper last night after #RIPEminem began trending on Twitter.

Concerns for the rapper began on Tuesday evening (August 18) after one Twitter user, whose account has since been suspended, tweeted: “I have killed Eminem”.

The rap icon is very much alive and well, but it didn’t stop the hashtag from sparking immediate hysteria among his fans on Twitter.

One user wrote: “Why is #ripeminem trending he is alive stop doing this it’s 2020 aka the worst year of all time.”

Another said: “Saw #ripeminem and damn near had a fucking emotional breakdown.”

A third said: “BRUH I THOUGHT EMINEM ACTUALLY DIED CAUSE IT’S 2020 AND ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN BUT IT’S JUST YALL PLAYING TOO MUCH AGAIN #ripeminem.”

Despite the brief scare, Eminem remains as active as ever – having joined forces with Kid Cudi on a new collaborative single called ‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’ last month.

The timely effort from the pair sees Eminem referencing the COVID-19 pandemic and the deaths of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. At one point he says “fuck Drew Brees” – referencing the NFL quarterback who claimed that taking a knee disrespects the US flag.

In June, Eminem apologised to Diddy‘s Revolt TV after criticising them in a recently leaked verse. “I never meant for that verse to be heard, I was heated in the moment and thought better of it and decided to pull it back,” he explained.
