Eminem gave the world a surprise when he came out as gay over the weekend. Well, sort of.

Despite the controversy surrounding the release of the targeted film by Sony, The Interview was made available in a few select theaters on Christmas day, as well as on various online streaming services.

Since its "release," a clip from the film, in which Eminem comes out as gay has gone wildly viral on social media, with nearly Two million views on YouTube in just 48 hours.

While the reviews of the film are not stellar, one of the funnier scenes is Eminem's cameo, in which the 42-year-old rapper, who is often accused of homophobia, comes out as gay.

Marshall Mathers, better-known as Eminem, delivers a perfectly deadpan performance in the brief cameo.

"I'm more shocked that people haven't figured it out yet," Eminem tells James Franco's talk show host character. "I've been playing gay peek-a-boo for years. I've pretty much been leaving a gay bread crumb trail."

Behind the scenes of the movies talk show, Seth Rogen's character suggests Franco ask a question pertaining to lyrics from Medicine Ball : "I said nice rectum, I had a vasectomy, Hector / So you can't get pregnant if I bisexually wreck ya."

Franco asks Eminem about that line, who confirms that "Hector's rectum was real."
