Dressed in a ‘FACK TRUMP’ t-shirt, Eminem didn’t hold back his feelings about the US President during his headline slot at Reading Festival on Saturday night.
Keen not to make a political statement during his set or turn it into a ‘platform’ for such topic, Slim Shady couldn’t help himself.
He told the Reading crowd he ‘couldn’t stand’ the President of the United States – to be fair, his shirt said it all!

Shady addressed festival-goers saying:
So Reading. I’m not about to stand up here and use this fucking stage as a platform to get all political and shit, but this motherfucker Donald Trump – I can’t stand him.
The rap star then led the crowd in to a chant, shouting:
When I say ‘fuck’, you say ‘Trump’: Fuck Trump, Fuck Trump.
It’s not the first time the Detroit rapper has hit out at the POTUS…
Back in October, Mr Mathers released an eight-minute track that completely dissed the American President.
Regardless of his political outburst, on the whole, fans seemed to love his Reading slot – the third time he’s graced the English festival.
Revelling in their excitement, fans took to social media to celebrate the singer’s headline slot:
Fair to say Eminem absolutely shut down reading last night?
