The cypher called out Trump for criticizing NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem, not denouncing white supremacists for their rally in Charlottesville, the lack of help in Puerto Rico, and poor policy on gun control, among other things.

Football player Colin Kaepernick, who was referenced in Eminem’s rap, tweeted, “I appreciate you @Eminem,” and in another tweet, basketball star LeBron James highlighted one of Eminem’s lines: “Racism is the only thing he’s Fantastic 4(fantastic for), cause that’s how he gets his rock off, he’s orange.”
