The freestyle left Eminem fans who are also Trump supporters feeling some type of way. Following the performance, a Reddit thread titled “Huge Eminem fan and a Trump supporter” sprung up.
“I guess I fall into this category…I mean I really only ‘support’ trump because my family does. (Hell even they only voted for the guy because he’s republican, they also think he is an idiot),” one user wrote. “But at the end of the day, I don’t think it’s possible for me to give any less of a f**k about politics. I don’t listen to Eminem for politics. I let the news do that. I listen to Em for catchy beats and insane raps, as any normal human being should. If you love politics that’s fine, but let’s not have it overtake someone’s career.”
