"Eminem's hate-filled lyrics have not only brought many people together in opposition, they've also raised the issue of corporate responsibility for marketing this kind of product."
—Joan Garry, GLAAD Executive Director
GRAMMY PROTEST TAKING SHAPE
Eminem Targeted By GLAAD
Mike Greene, take cover.

Expect protesters to bombard Grammy Award attendees at the Staples Center when the nationally televised show takes place there later this month.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has announced details of its Rally Against Hate, a protest against Eminem and his four Grammy nominations. The rally is scheduled for 3pm on Feb. 21, two hours before the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to begin.

With the protest, GLAAD will try to show that the rapper's "violent, homophobic and misogynistic" lyrics are a link between hate speech and violence.  What, they forgot about Dre?

"Eminem's hate-filled lyrics have not only brought many people together in opposition, they've also raised the issue of corporate responsibility for marketing this kind of product," GLAAD Executive Director Joan Garry said in a statement yesterday. "Our coalition's presence at the Grammys will send a powerful message that hate in any medium will not go unchallenged."

Hey, if there's anyone who knows about hate, it's us.

Garry added if Grammy attendees refuse to pay attention to the group's messages, GLAAD members might be forced to beat the music industry's heteros with baseball bats.
