Rapper Eminem just delivered the cypher of the year and, according to Twitter, simultaneously saved the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night.
Slim Shady took over everyone’s screens (well, everyone who was watching BET) and delivered verse after verse on Donald Trump, commenting on everything from how the president handled Puerto Rico’s hurricane crisis, to the NFL protests, to the Charlottesville protests, to … well let’s just say the 44-year-old rapper touched on just about everything Trump has done during his term.
It could all be summed up with one verse: “We f-cking hate Trump.” You can watch the full cypher above.
Eminem even called out his fans who supported the president.
“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who like more in your split, on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this, f-ck you,” rapped Eminem.
And Twitter could not handle it.
Some people vowed to stay up all night just so they could hear Trump’s response to the rapper.
“Now I gotta stay awake all night so I can see Trump’s cypher response to that,” commented one user.
Others applauded the rapper for using his white privilege to speak out against the President.
“Dear White People, That’s how you use your white privilege,” wrote another user.
