Colin Kaepernick, Donald Trump and Eminem. The classic trio for a sports story.
On Tuesday night at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards, that's exactly what happened. Eminem took Twitter by storm with a freestyle rap aimed at Donald Trump during the show.
"The Storm" (Freestyle) https://t.co/QLPjtgS5n3— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) October 11, 2017
During the rap, Eminem called out Trump for the president's fight against NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.
He gets an enormous reaction
When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that
Instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada
All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather
Cause a Twitter storm with the Packers. …
Now if you’re a black athlete, you’re a spoiled little brat for
Tryna use your platform or your stature
To try to give those a voice who don’t have one.
A few verses later, Eminem raised his right fist before defiantly saying, "This one's for Colin!"
Kaepernick took to social media to show his appreciation for the Detroit rapper.
