The self-proclaimed “bad guy who makes fun of people that die” continues to prove that there’s a heart of gold behind the Slim Shady persona. Marshall Mathers took a break from (hopefully) working on his new album to pledge an undisclosed amount toward the the JustGiving page set up to assist families hurt by the tragedy. Their goal is to raise £2,000,000, and with the help of high-status contributors like Em, the pot currently sits at £1.6m. And that’s not taking into account the parallel fundraiser by the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which, when combined, raises the pot to £4.1 million.
Em even took to Twitter to implore fans to follow his lead.
