This Tuesday, famous Detroit rapper Eminem unleashed a furious lyrical attack on President Donald Trump, in what was a taped freestyle rap which aired during the BET Hip Hop Awards.
Now, it was no secret that Eminem fell on the leftist side as he was a loud vocal critic of the commander-in-chief, but despite his previous rants which were of smaller magnitude, the rapper crossed all boundaries this time, raising a fist and “drawing a line in the sand” against any of his fans which had a hard time choosing who they supported, but he said it with quite the strong language.
During the freestyle video, the rapper also raised his fist for the first NFL protester, the former San Francisco 49-ers and now a free agent Colin Kaepernick, for kneeling during the national anthem, and thus show their disrespect to the flag.
The video of the rapper quickly went viral, and it is no surprise that it passed through Kaepernick’s ears as well as many other celebrities, with the NFL free agent writing, “I appreciate you,” to Eminem.

From what can be seen on the posts above, celebrities as well as leftist supporters immediately took it to Twitter to share their ‘support’ of the video, as well as for the protesting players themselves. As of right now, it appears that the situation is resembling the calm before the storm, as Trump himself hasn’t tweeted about Eminem’s lyrics yet, but an official response by the White House or the personal Twitter account of the POTUS is expected soon.
