Wonder Slams Eminem

Soul veteran STEVIE WONDER has hit out at EMINEM for ridiculing MICHAEL JACKSON in a music video, accusing the rapper of being "hypocritical".

The SUPERSTITION singer believes Eminem owes his success to poor, black people, so was "disappointed" with the controversial JUST LOSE IT video.

Wonder says, "Kicking someone when he's down is not a good thing.

"I have much respect for his work, though I don't think he's as good as (late rapper) 2Pac. But I was disappointed that he would let himself go to such a level.

"He has succeeded on the backs of people predominantly in that lower pay bracket, people of colour. So for him to come out like that is bulls**t."
