Rapper Eminem decided to take the “Dolly Parton Challenge” on Friday, which encourages people to share four photos of themselves representing their LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder personas.
“Did I do this right?” the rapper tweeted after swapping out Tinder for Grindr which included a half-naked picture.

A number of people in the comments for the picture were keen to draw attention to the rapper’s history of homophobic language in his music.
“You call people fa-gots. Delete this,” wrote one user. “Aren’t u like very homophobic,” wrote another.
You call people faggots. Delete this

It didn’t take long for Grindr’s official Twitter account to throw some shade at the rapper: “Who?”
