Eminem Slates Donald Trump Again And Pisses People Off At Reading
He's at it again. Not one to hide away his feelings, Eminem certainly went in on Donald Trump during his set at Reading Festival on Saturday night.
As he did in Glasgow last Thursday, the rapper, real name Marshall Mathers, wore a 'FACK TRUMP' t-shirt before sending a message to the American president. This time, however, he vented with a little more intensity.
"So, Reading, I'm not about to stand up here and use this fucking stage a platform to get all political and shit," he said, keen not to get involved in a drawn-out debate with the crowd.
He continued: "I don't want to cause any controversy so I won't say no names. But this motherfucker Donald Trump, I can't stand."

The crowd seemed to be largely on his side when he told them: "When I say 'fuck', you say 'Trump'."
However, on Twitter it was a very different story.
as far as i know he's still going to be president for at least 3,5 years, if not 7,5 lol.

This UK jaunt was not the first time he's expressed his views to Trump either. In October, he released an eight-minute track that completely dissed the American President.
Aside from the standard political viewpoint clashing, Eminem absolutely owned Reading and Leeds on his third visit to the festival.
He wrote on his Instagram page: "It's a wrap UK! Thank you all that came out this weekend. We hope to be back soon."
Fair to say Eminem absolutely shut down reading last night:sob:

Following the short trip to the UK, it's likely that - instead of releasing a highly anticipated new album - he'll now focus on his satirical film about rap battles.
Similar to 8 Mile, which focused on his rise from 'trailer park trash' to making moves on the underground rap battle scene, Bodied will explore the topic in greater depth.
He's teamed up with director Joseph Kahn to create the film, written by battle champion Kid Twist, which will be shown at the Toronto Film Festival next month.
