The rapper is facing some backlash.
Eminem is facing backlash from fans after unleashing his scathing anti-Trump freestyle.
The Detroit native debuted the savage four-minute rap, which fired some serious shots at the current President, during the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2017 this week.
While many viewers praised the politically-charged performance, some fans who voted for Trump were quick to express their disdain.
"Used to be a big Eminem fan. No longer." said one user.
"He says "F" Trump supporters....well....we say "F" you back!"

Despite the negative response from some Trump supporters, the rapper received widespread acclaim for the passionate performance across social media.
NFL star Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter to thank Slim Shady for his shoutout in the freestyle.
Meanwhile, recent reports suggest that Eminem is preparing to drop his hotly-anticipated new album as early as November 2017.
The rapper is allegedly set to appear on P!nk’s new album on an "unbelievable" collaboration titled 'Revenge'.
