Sometimes the best shows of support and solidarity are the unexpected ones. Last night during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, Eminem laid into Donald Trump with a searing four-minute freestyle that ran the gamut on topics from the NFL protests, Puerto Rico, gun control, the military, and everything in between. Once he finds his groove, the seasoned rapper lays in mercilessly:
But we better give Obama props Cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze That'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust And while the drama pops and he waits for shit to quiet down He'll just gas his plane up and fly around til the bombing stops
He names Colin Kapernick by name when he references professional athletes protesting during the playing of the national anthem, saying: "This is for Colin, ball up a fist, and keep that shit bald, like Donald the bitch," which Kapernick tweeted his appreciation for.
\u201cI appreciate you @Eminem \u270a\ud83c\udffe\u201d
Though the rapper fails to mention any of Trump's transgressions against the LGBTQ community, he does draw a metaphorical line in the sand, telling his fans that if they like Trump, he wants nothing to do with them. Watch his salvo below, and consider this your warning for strong, graphic language.
