AceShowbiz - Eminem has shown up to his restaurant Mom's Spaghetti in Detroit. The "Rap God" hitmaker visited his eatery spot for a taste test nearly a month after his restaurant came under fire over a food poisoning joke made by NFL star Jackson Carman.
On Friday, November 12, the 49-year-old musician took to his Instagram account to share a photo that saw him eating spaghetti. "Taste testing meat sauce yesterday at @momsspaghettidetroit this is [thumbs up emoji] stay tuned!" he captioned his post.
Back in October, Eminem's eatery faced backlash after some sports fans shared via Twitter that Jackson vomited on the field during his game against the Detroit Lions. The footballer himself tweeted, "Would not recommend eating [Mom's] spaghetti when you visit Detroit [laughing emoji]."
After his tweet went viral, Jackson clarified that he was only joking. In a separate post, the footballer wrote, "FYI: I did not actually try the Moms Spaghetti Restaurant while I was in Detroit, I was referencing the @Eminem song lyrics."
It didn't take much time for social media critics to call out Eminem. "@Eminem your spaghetti messed our guy up. You have the whole thing planned to try to get your team a win, or what?" one wrote, while another chimed in, "Look, I don't mean to be rude but like, what did you really expect to happen? Eminem literally vomited on his sweater after eating Mom's spaghetti, that alone should have been a warning to avoid eating there."
Eminem opened his restaurant on September 29. At the grand opening of his eatery, the "Venom" hitmaker surprised his fans by making an appearance at the joint's walk-up window. He also greeted the customers with a middle finger and personally served food to the first ten customers.
At that time, it was reported that the line for Mom's Spaghetti extended multiple blocks. It's also said that some patrons had been camping out at the site hours before the joint's official opening at 5 P.M. local time.
