Does Eminem get a pass from critics on anti-gay lyrics?

Eminem returns, declaring himself "Rap God" but still can't seem to get through 16 bars without derogatory references to homosexuality. Kevin Fallon from Newsweek/The Daily Beast talks to Brooke Baldwin about his column asking why critics seem awed by Eminem's technical rap prowess but not appalled by his lyrical content, in a music world less and less tolerant of intolerance.

    I knew it was only a matter of time before Eminem said something offensive. Interesting trajectory, what with his first album being mostly church hymns.
