Cannon Accuses Eminem of 'Racial Bigotry'

Nick Cannon has launched a bitter attack on Eminem -- accusing the rapper of "racial bigotry" over a derogatory new track that mentions his wife Mariah Carey.

Cannon, who married Carey in a secret Bahamas ceremony last April, is fuming that Eminem has namedropped him and his partner in a controversial song featured on the rap star's latest album Relapse.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, recorded "Bagpipes from Baghdad" for his latest LP, in which he comments on his alleged romance with Carey -- one that she vehemently denies.

In the track, Eminem raps, "Nick Cannon better back the f**k up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk. Nick Cannon, you pr**k, I wish you luck with that f**kin' whore."

But Cannon isn't going to let the star get away with his comments -- vowing that Eminem's words will have "repercussions."

He writes on his blog, "A mediocre (at best) Eminem record that sounds like it was written in 2001. At first, I thought it was old material that had been dug up from when dude 'fantasized' about having a pretend fling with Mariah. ... But all of a sudden I hear my name in the verse! My first reaction was like, 'This is his new s**t? Wow, that's too bad.'

"Maybe I'm going too far, but I thought we got past the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it. What's next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed. Calling my wife a 'c**t' and a 'whore' is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served. Anybody got Al Sharpton's number?!"

"So, Miss Marshall, I'm going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife. This is going to be fun! It's however you want it! Just remember, you did this to yourself! Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to corny-ass Nick Cannon!"

The blog, which was featured on Cannon's official Web site, has since been taken down due to an overload of comments.
