Eminem performed a new freestyle on Tuesday night at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, aiming his four-and-a-half-minute verse at U.S. President Donald Trump.
"Racism's the only thing he's Fantastic four, 'cause that's how he gets his f--kin' rocks off, and he's orange," Eminem says of Trump in "The Storm," a reference to Marvel's the Thing in the Fantastic Four comic. Eminem also mentions his support for Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who first took a knee during the U.S. national anthem in summer 2016 to protest racial injustice, starting a movement that has now been adopted by many fellow athletes.
Kaepernick acknowledged Eminem's freestyle and support via Twitter after "The Storm" aired.
Musicians and athletes responded to the rapper after the video aired.
