Moby is again lashing out at Eminem on his website’s journal. “Misogyny is not funny,” Moby wrote on December 6th. “It is not a joke. And it should not be treated lightly. And now we find out that a British man who is obsessed with Eminem killed a woman with a metal baseball bat and stuffed her body into a suitcase. Am I being ‘too uptight’ for not seeing the humor in this? Should I ‘relax’ and see the comedy in a misogynyst beating a woman to death? Before this British man brutally killed this woman, he was singing Eminem songs in a karaoke bar. Maybe there’s no connection. Maybe there is. It’s disgusting that we even have to ask that question. It’s disgusting that people in the media and the press have celebrated and glamorized music and musicians who write lyrics that glorify misogyny and homophobia. There is nothing glamorous about homophobia and misogyny. Homophobia and misogyny are disgusting and vile and represent the worst and most atavistic elements of the human spirit.” Moby added, “Any employee of a record company or journalist or radio programmer or MTV employee who has promoted and celebrated misogynystic or homophobic music should be ashamed. You have blood on your hands, and you should be deeply, deeply troubled at the culture that you’ve helped to create.”
