Eminem dropped a freestyle at the BET Hip Hop Awards ripping into President Trump and his supporters. Eminem called out the president for his racism, his beef with the NFL and his hypocrisy toward the military.

"It's like we take a step forwards then backwards, but this is his form of distraction. Plus, 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."
"From his endorsement of Bannon, support for the Klansman, tiki torches in hand for the solider that's black and comes home from Iraq and is still told to go back to Africa."

The rapper ended with a strong message for his Trump-supporting fans, "Any fan of mine who's a supporter of his, I'm drawing in the sand a line: You're either for or against."

Many applauded the rapper for using his platform to share his disdain for the current administration, including NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who has received heat for his own political opinions.

But Trump supporters attacked Eminem for his criticism of the president, with some even suggesting a boycott of his music.

Others think it's hypocritical that Eminem would preach about politics given his own troubled history.

But some think Trump supporters, who literally elected a reality television star, have no room to criticize celebrities for having political opinions.
