Lift the Ban on Eminem Performing in Canada sign now

Eminem is known for being the king of controversy, the rapper that makes many people angry. He is also known for being one of the best rappers of all time. The way that he writes his lyrics is a part of who he is... I'm sure not many of us could imagine Slim Shady without the obscene lyrics! He is known for pushing the boundaries of what is allowed, for making people take double takes of his music.
About ten years ago, Eminem had a concert in Canada, and performed his song "Kill You", from his album "The Marshall Mathers LP". A Canadian woman complained about this, as the line "I invented the violence you vile, venomous, vomited bitches" was considered offensive. She argued that it was against the Canadian laws of violence against women, and that he shouldn't be allowed to play in Canada any more. After traveling back to the USA, he was also caught with some knives in a 9mm gun. These events led to him being banned from performing in Canada.
Now, almost ten years later, Eminem is still banned from playing in Canada! Not only has he completely stopped drug use, and gone clean in other senses of his life (drugs, alcohol, etc), but truly, he never broke the law of violence against women in the first place! He is known for channeling his anger into his songs, and this includes being violent to pretty much anyone and anything in his lyrics. He doesn't single out women, he is considered controversial for so many other reasons. As for the weapons found in his possession, this was a long time ago, and he has certainly changed.
Therefore, we believe that Eminem should be allowed to perform in Canada again, as his music has changed so many things. He has a true talent, which has been banned from being expressed in Canada. We believe that this ban should be lifted!
Thank you.

    Ever since I discovered Eminem's song "Beautiful" in seventh grade, I've loved him. He's inspired me so much. He may have violent lyrics but it was his life. Music is supposed to represent life and emotions and that's what he did. Obviously I didn't liste
