Eminem made a return of sorts at Tuesday night's BET Awards. In a freestyle rap, he again went after Donald Trump after previously attacking him during last years "Campaign Speech" and on rapper Big Sean's song "No Favors". In a blistering four-and-a-half minute freestyle, he calls Trump a "bitch" and "racist 94 year old grandpa". But one line in particular is standing out for most:
Racism's the only thing he's Fantastic 4 cause that's how he gets his rocks off, he's orange.
Naturally, as a comic fan that line is both hilarious and kind of sad when you think about it.
Makes you wonder why Trump backer Ike Perlmutter hasn't taken the Fantastic Four book out of the doghouse for a spin. I mean, he is friends with Ike. Ike donated to his campaign, and even trusts him enough to count him as an official adviser of his. In this time of Marvel Legacy relaunches, surely there is room for this one?
Naturally, something like this is going to get a rise out of people. Colin Kaepernick, also name-checked in the freestyle, paid his respect.

LeBron James, who has also been vocal about Trump calling him previously "a bum", also loved the FF shout-out:
Eminem also went hard at his fans that may support Donald Trump.
"And 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 you like more and you're split on who you should stand beside, I'll do it for it for you with this. Fuck you."
I would say that is pretty cut and dry wouldn't you? The apperance was planned to get hype for the new Eminem album, his eighth. Needless to say, this will garner some publicity.
