Eminem Has Attacked Donald Trump In A Fiery Rap And People Are Torn

Eminem attacked President Donald Trump in a blistering rap performed at the BET Hip Hop Awards Tuesday and it is getting a lot of attention.

The FULL verse that EVERYBODY is talking about! @eminem BODIED THIS! #HipHopAwards

In the scathing performance, Eminem targeted Trump over North Korea, his response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico, white supremacy, and economic policy.

Racism’s the only thing he’s fantastic for
‘Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange

From his endorsement of Bannon
Support from the Klansmen
Tiki torches in hand for the soldier that’s black
And comes home from Iraq
And is still told to go back to Africa

The rapper did not hold back.

And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his
I’m drawing, in the sand, a line
You’re either for or against
And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split
On who you should stand beside
I’ll do it for you with this:
Fuck you!

Many people have applauded Eminem for his performance.

eminem delivers the clearest and most beautiful anti trump moment.

#Eminem stated nothing but the truth in his #HipHopAwards freestyle ✊

It's so important what Eminem has just done. People who say that musicians should stick to entertainment are afraid of the power of music.

right now Trump and his generals are in the War Room working on a diss track about Eminem

Racism is the only thing he's Fantastic 4(fantastic for), cause that's how he gets his rock off, he's orange. Shees… https://t.co/WFz7BN4ze0

However, many people were quick to point out that the rapper has made some problematic statements in the past.

Eminem blasts @POTUS & his base & liberals applaud him- just a reminder that this is the same guy that rapped about murdering his wife. 🤔

Ah yes. @Eminem a moral compass who's been arrested, rapped about assaulting his wife, sued by his mother & anti-LGBT. Real people's champ.

PSA: Eminem hates women – no matter their race – just as much as Trump does

And others were just confused about what decade they were in.

Eminem Kid Rock & Lindsay Lohan all trending. I'm off to buy a Nokia and reopen my MySpace

#LindsayLohan and #Eminem are trending…

Now we wait.

Damn #Eminem went hard on Trump. Now let's wait for the 'Tweet'
