In the past, Eminem has commanded the respect of his fans all over the world with his sick beats, funny flows, and his I don’t give a crap attitude. Flash forward to today and we see a middle aged has been who is trying to be relevant.
During an interview with Billboard, he details that he knew Trump would win.
“Watching the TV in fucking disbelief. I was in my basement, on the phone back and forth with friends like, ‘He’s going to fucking win’,” he said.
“I called it just from the rallies he was having when he first started running. Because just watching the impact he has, they were fanatics. There is something to be said about the person who really felt like he might do something for them – and he just fucking duped everybody.”
“I know that Hillary [Clinton] had her flaws, but you know what? Anything would have been better [than Trump]. A fucking turd would have been better as a president.”
Eminem has been no stranger to controversy but choosing to alienate half of his fans is the final nail the coffin of his failing career. He gave an ultimatum to his fans at the BET Awards saying that his fans need to choose between him and Trump.
“It’s just so fucking disgusting how divisive his language is, the rhetoric, the Charlottesville shit, just watching it going, ‘I can’t believe he’s saying this.’ When he was talking about John McCain, I thought he was done. You’re fucking with military veterans, you’re talking about a military war hero who was captured and tortured. It just didn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. And that’s some scary shit to me.”
“I knew [the BET freestyle] would get a reaction, obviously; that’s what I rap to do,” Eminem added. “But where I was coming from in that cypher was a genuine place in my heart. I [hesitate] to say [I have] hatred in my heart for him, but it’s serious contempt. I do not like the guy.”
“At the end of the day, if I did lose half my fan base, then so be it, because I feel like I stood up for what was right and I’m on the right side of this. I don’t see how somebody could be middle class, busting their ass every single day, paycheck to paycheck, who thinks that that fucking billionaire is gonna help you.”
This is quite rich coming from the guy who routinely disrespects women, homosexuals, talks about murdering other famous celebrities and women. Eminem has no moral high ground to preach “morality” when he was the one who contributed the most to the degradation of our society in his music.
It was an unwise move for you Slim. You aren’t going to gain any more followers for your public stands against Donald Trump, In fact, you just alienated the one group of people who made you who you are…Your fans.
Will the Real Slim Shady stop being a Snowflake.
