Eminem T-Shirts Spark Deadly Fight
Tue Nov 4, 7:16 AM ET Add Oddly Enough - Reuters to My Yahoo!

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A Turkish man was stabbed to death after hawking
T-shirts depicting U.S. rap superstar Eminem (news - web sites) because
a man mistook the sales pitch as an insult to his mother, Turkish
newspapers said Tuesday.

A knife fight broke out in an Istanbul suburb after 19-year-old Dilaver
Akkurt told T-shirt vendor Hayrettin Demir his mother was named Emine
and lived in the area, Hurriyet newspaper said.

"Eminem" means "my Emine" in Turkish.

Akkurt warned Demir to stop shouting "Eminem" and to cease sales of
the clothing inscribed with the star's name and image.

Hmmm. T-shirt violence happens all the time, I remember a friend (of a friend) that got severly beat up by another gang because, well, because the t-shirt was asking for it. So...language barriers are kinda asking for it too. Suprised the turkish guy never heard of Eminem before, but I guess he's just not quite so popular in Turkey...
