While social media waits for Donald Trump to respond to Eminem — who called out the president in a freestyle rap during Tuesday night’s BET Hip-Hop Awards — there were plenty of others who reacted on Twitter.
In a four-minute-and-34-second long video, which debuted during the awards show, Eminem blasted Trump for everything from ignoring tragedies in favor of “causing a Twitter storm” to “support for the Klansman” and slandering Hillary Clinton. He also referred to Trump as “this racist 94-year-old grandpa.”
Within hours of airing on YouTube, it was already the No. 1 trending video with more than 1.5 million views.
