Troye Sivan slams Eminem's homophobic slur

Troye Sivan slams Eminems homophobic slur

Los Angeles: Australian singer Troye Sivan says that rapper Eminems use of a homophobic slur in his latest album "Kamikaze" is inexcusable.

"I don't think there's ever really a reason," the singer told He added: "I just feel like some words are not meant for everyone, or for anyone. It's not that hard to respect that, so I just hope that people do."

Sivan, who came out publicly as gay in a YouTube video in 2013, said forgiveness for actions like Eminem's is possible, though not without some real work.

"I would like to believe that people can grow and change. I think that repeated behaviour is something that should be taken really seriously..."

"I would love to believe that if the person showed enough genuine remorse and understanding of how they have hurt people and actively made strides to correct that – I would like to believe I can be fine with that person," he said.
