Eminem, the rapper who built a deeply problematic career by portraying a misogynist villain, is letting the world know via freestyle that he actually "f**king hate[s]" President Donald Trump and disavows everything the president's been doing.

The explosive segment comes courtesy of the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

“We better give Obama props/Because what we got in office now is a kamikaze/That will probably cause a nuclear holocaust," he raps. 

He blasts the president for using the NFL controversy as a means to avoid doing his job. 

"Plus he gets an enormous reaction/When he attacks the NFL so we focus on that," he spits. "Instead of talking about Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada/All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and he/Would rather cause a Twitter storm at the Packers."

Eminem also calls Trump a supporter of "Klansmen," criticizes his alliance with Steve Bannon and raises a fist in support of black lives before laying into his own fans.

“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his/I’m drawing in the sand a line, you either for or against/And if you can’t decide on who like more and you split/On who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this/The rest of America stand up/We love our military and we love our country, but we f**king hate Trump."

The diss is notable, given Eminem's huge popularity with the white male demographic that voted for Trump.
