The rapper Eminem has issued an ultimatum to his fans – support either him or Donald Trump – in a scorching rap played at Tuesday night’s BET awards.
Whoa. Rap God. @Eminem thank you. Potentttt

In the four-minute freestyle, filmed in a car park in Detroit and titled The Storm, Eminem called out the US president on issues including his behaviour towards North Korea, his support for white supremacists and his penchant for tweeting.

In the rap he refers to the US president as “a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust”. In a
reference to the orange superhero the Thing from the Fantastic Four comic books, he raps:
“Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic Four / Cause that’s how he gets his fucking rocks off and he’s orange.”
Eminem, who has criticised Trump in the past, also waded into the NFL national anthem protest saga and threw his support behind the player Colin Kaepernick, who was first to take a knee and who inspired widespread protests that have extended outside of football and enraged Trump.
