Man dies in Eminem T-shirt row
    #2078398 - 11/06/03 10:06 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

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

Police believe Demir, who died at the scene from multiple stab wounds, was killed by a friend of Akkurt's in the brawl in Istanbul's Kucukcekmece district, Hurriyet said.

Police have detained Akkurt, who was being treated in hospital for wounds, and are still searching for Demir's killer, the newspaper said.
