American artiste Eminem is under fire from fans after they were disappointed by the news that the rapper is going to headline Reading and Leeds festival, a pair of annual music festivals that take place in in the mentioned cities in England.
Fans have been throwing shade back at Slim Shady voicing their disappointment with the decision to include him so high up the bill after it was claimed he was miming in 2013.
Eminem is miming. Disappointing. #ReadingFestival

According to OK! Magazine another Twitter user, who has since deleted his tweet, wrote: ‘@OfficialRandL @Eminem Why the f*** have you got him again, I was there when he was miming and he was s***’
But festival organiser Melvin Benn said he was ‘beyond excited’ about Eminem playing the festival.
It was claimed that Eminem was lip syncing during his 90 minute performance, which featured a special guest appearance from Dido, at Reading and Leeds back in 2013.
But Benn refuted the claims, according to NME.
It will be the third year Eminem has headlined the festival, which has been running since 1961.
