Eminem’s Insane Clown Posse
Warren, Mich., city attorney George Constance received a profanity-ridden, two-page letter vowing to avenge the rapper by burning down the city if criminal charges against him aren’t dropped, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Constance isn’t directly threatened in the screed, but the insinuation of physical harm was enough to persuade his wife and two kids to leave their Warren home June 12.
“Not only do I consider this person to be a coward, but a bottom-feeder and a wanna-be,” Constance told the Free Press. “If I find who did this, I will prosecute them.”
The letter reportedly was sloppily scrawled, and sprinkled with profanity, declarations of Eminem’s greatness and Nazi “SS” symbols. The authors refer to Eminem as “our Christ” and reverentially declare, “We party in his name so you’ll be dropping the charges.”
In addition to insults of Constance, the letter stated “We’re coming uptown with 20-oz. Mountain Dew bottles full of gasoline and charcoal lighting fluid and matches” unless Constance drops the charges.
Unfortunately for Eminem, Constance probably wouldn’t be inclined to do so, even if the decision were not already out of his hands. Macomb and Oakland county prosecutors filed the charges against Eminem and don’t plan to withdraw them.
Eminem’s attorney, Howard Hertz, performed damage control by distancing the top-selling star from his fans. “I’m confident he had nothing to do with any such letter, and he would not condone it.”
The note was signed by “South Warren Street Kids.”
Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is free on bail after being charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor in two separate incidents involving an unloaded but unregistered gun. His wife, Kimberly, is also free on bail after being charged with disorderly conduct for her related role in a fight outside a Warren nightclub early June 4.
