Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick thanked rapper Eminem for taking a stand against President Donald Trump and shouting out the former San Francisco 49er during Tuesday's BET Hip Hop Awards.
Kaepernick expressed his gratitude via his Twitter page and shared some of the rapper's freestyle verse (warning: NSFW language):
Alysha Tsuji of USA Today shared some of Eminem's lyrics that included the Kaepernick mention:
"This is for Colin (Kaepernick), ball up a fist
And keep that (expletive) balled like Donald the (expletive)...
Any fan of mine who's a supporter of his (Trump)
I'm drawing in the sand a line
You either for or against...
The rest of America, stand up
We love our military
We love our country
But we (expletive) hate Trump"
