Last night hip-hop rap icon Eminem shocked the world with a global message about the state of affairs in the Unites States Whitehouse.
It was a very direct and to the point message that went viral as soon as it went public. Eminem called for his fans to either ride with him against Donald Trump, or stop being his fans. Though he wasn’t as nice about it.
While several MMA athletes do their best to stay out of politics, we had a few who took to twitter with the reaction. All pretty much agreeing with the other. The only stand-alone trump supporter being that of former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz.
Here’s the reactions:
.@Eminem thanks for creating a larger divide in our country. ?? United We Stand and Divided We Fall.

Not totally sure how rap battles work, but I believe Eminem is now the President of the United States of America.

UFC commentator Snoop even had an opinion:
