London: Rap superstar Eminem has been slammed by a group of anti-violence campaigners for showing a suicidal act in his latest single video, 'Space Bound'.

The controversial promo shows the hip-hop star apparently shooting himself in the head and hallucinating about strangling his girlfriend, a website reported.

"People who do this are really quite evil. Children are influenced by the things they see. If we feed violence, it becomes strong. Like an addiction," said a spokesperson from UK group Mothers Against Violence.

"It's all about the money with these videos. Eminem isn't thinking about the families affected. It's selfish, it comes to a point when selfishness becomes evil," they added.
