Eminem namechecks Colin Kaepernick in angry freestyle rap against Donald Trump
Colin Kaepernick appreciated Eminem standing up for him in his takedown of Donald Trump
On Tuesday night, Eminem threw his name into the group of people who do not appreciate some of the things said by the current President of the United States, unleashing a lengthy freestyle rap during the BET Hip-Hop Wwards in which he said many things about Donald Trump that will probably not go over well in the White House.
"F--- that," Eminem said after lamenting the criticism athletes received for taking a knee. "This is for Colin. Ball up a fist! And keep that s--- balled. Like Donald the b----."
The video, which was recorded in Detroit on October 6 in a parking garage, contains no music and is quite vitriolic. There are, again, many swear words. Kap appreciated the shoutout and made a note about it on Twitter, thanking the Detroit-based rapper for making him a part of the spoken-word rant.
In non-lyrical form:
"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, with gun reform from Nevada. All these horrible tragedies, and he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers."
Kaepernick was not the only athlete to shoutout Eminem on Wednesday morning. Also making note of the video was LeBron James, who has been very outspoken in his critiques of the president. James referenced the "orange" and "Fantastic Four" line about Trump.

The NFL has said it is, although Roger Goodell said in a memo to all 32 clubs that .
As the anger in the Eminem video would indicate, this is not a situation that is simply going to disappear.
