Celebrities Respond To Eminem’s Viral, Trump-Roasting Freestyle Rap
By Kylie Woon, 12 Oct 2017
Rapper Eminem is not a Donald Trump supporter.
He made this clear in a now-viral video released at the BET Hip Hop Awards, in which the controversial rapper delivered scorching verses condemning the US President’s policies, actions, and took shots at Trump’s complexion and hair.
Many public figures have since responded to the rap that’s already inspired parodies and memes. Celebrities include Snoop Dogg, Colin Kaepernick and NBA star LeBron James, who praised Eminem’s referencing of ‘Thing’ from Fantastic Four:
“Racism is the only thing [Donald Trump] is fantastic for, cause that’s how he gets his rocks off, he’s orange,” rapped the artist.
A bizarre 2004 video, included below, was also unearthed wherein Trump appears to be endorsing Slim Shady for president—a move Trump would likely revoke once he catches wind of the scathing rap.
Watch Eminem’s Trump-demolishing rap below. You can find the rap’s full lyrics and highlight responses from celebrities following the video.
It is unlikely Trump still endorses Slim Shady:
