Colin Kaepernick and LeBron James praised rapper Eminem after he unleashed a freestyle rap Tuesday night at the BET Hip Hop Awards that slammed President Donald Trump in a rambling tirade.
In a pre-taped video, the 44-year-old rapper–whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III–attacked the president over his handling of things like North Korea, immigration, Hurricane Maria, his response to the Las Vegas massacre, the violence in Charlottesville, VA, and his stance regarding National Football League players standing for the national anthem.

At one point, he refers to Trump as a “kamikaze that will probably cause a nuclear holocaust.” He also told his fans “that any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his [Trump],” he was drawing a line in the sand and that they must choose a side. And to those who can’t decide, he tells them, “fuck you.”
“I appreciate you @Eminem,” the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback tweeted after Eminem mentioned the player in his rap, as the rapper raised his fist in the air for him.

“Racism is the only thing he’s Fantastic 4 (fantastic for), cause that’s how he gets his rock off, he’s orange. Sheesh @Eminem!! #United,” LeBron James with the Cleveland Cavaliers tweeted, using a line from the rap.
