Rapper Eminem defended NFL anthem kneelers and Nike’s ad campaign starring Colin Kaepernick, referring to critics as “fucking moron[s]” in a new interview with hip-hop radio host Sway Calloway.
Like really?” Eminem said when asked about people burning their Nike gear over their decision to feature Kaepernick in their new “Just Do It” advertising campaign.
“Nike supports people who kneel for the anthem.
The 45-year-old rapper also said that he started getting inspired to write last years’ anti-Trump freestyle after the president criticized kneeling NFL players.
The thing that pissed me off the most and when I started going crazy with the pen was the Kaepernick thing and when that shit happened and how [Trump] kept changing the narrative,” he said, also stating how he wanted to be “on the right side of history.”
