"The mnm statement was all in good fun I like him & Kim. @Pitchfork took it out of context because they thirsty. Lemme get these jokes off," began Staples. "And yall not about to sit here and try to convince me the Donald the bitch line had y’all out y’all seat shut up."
He continued by tweeting, "How we gonna clown Xtentacion for rapping like a sorcerer on XXL but let M go full assasins creed & then deny me the right to my jokes." Staples even managed to squeeze in some time to respond to avid Em fans, who weren't pleased with his comments. "Look man just admit that some of y’all champion him because he looks like you it’s okay everybody does it Idk why y’all try to hide it lol," he wrote.
He continued his assault after fans attempted to skewer YG for his "FDT" record, a song that was released a year before Em's freestyle against Trump. "It was just about the message not the quality but now FDT is a “trash song” by a “trash rapper” y’all make it too easy," he said. "And n----as bet not never come to my Twitter tryna slander YG 400 that’s all the way out."
After Eminem's freestyle broke the Internet, fans of both him and Trump voiced their opinions on whether they would continue to rally behind the legendary lyricist. One Reddit user vowed to support Em, despite his political standing.
“I watched the cypher and obviously heard the ending yet I will still listen to Eminem's music because he is incredibly talented and I can't wait to hear what he comes out with next. I'm just curious if there is anyone else who falls in this category or those who don't. What are your thoughts about his cypher and his opinions,” said iReactionV2.
