Eminem has taken back control of his Twitter account and people are getting ready for the storm
In the celebrity world, it is a well-known fact that a lot of famous folks don't have control over their own social media pages - and it's mostly for practical reasons. Kylie Jenner employs someone to carefully manage her brand on Instagram, Emma Watson has someone else to share her messages of activism on Twitter, and - up until recently - Eminem had someone controlling his accounts, presumably so that he wouldn't go running his mouth about things he shouldn't.
But that's all about to change.
In a post uploaded to Instagram during the early hours of this morning, the rapper announced that he was taking back control of his tweets.
While fans are excited to have Shady back on the social media platform, however, others are worried about how he might wield his newfound power. After all, he's been very outspoken to people's faces in the past - particularly the Trumps - so what's to stop him starting a huge feud with a tweet?
In fact, just last week the rapper caused some controversy after implying that he had "murdered" Ivanka Trump in his most recent music video, and included the lyrics:
"Woke up, it was dawn, musta knew somethin’ was wrong. Think I’m becomin’ a monster ’cause of the drugs that I’m on. Donald Duck’s on, there’s a Tonka Truck in the yard, but dog, how the f**k is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car?
"Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it, must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon me… Plus I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde, girl that mother f**kin’ baton twirler that got dumped in the pond."
And who could forget his outburst last year, in which he publicly dunked on Donald Trump during a performance at the BET Awards?
"And if you can’t decide who you like more and you're split on who you should stand beside, I'll do it for you with this: F**k you," he rapped. "The rest of America, stand up! We love our military, and we love our country… But we f****n’ hate Trump!"
So far, however, he's just Tweeted this witty little gem:
When he does finally take verbal aim at the president, however, we should expect the same sort of retaliation we've seen from him in the past. Indeed, just a few months ago, Donald Trump put Jay-Z on blast for some comments he'd made about "s**thole countries", tweeting:
"Somebody please inform Jay-Z that because of my policies, Black Unemployment has just been reported to be at the LOWEST RATE EVER RECORDED!"
Then again, though, it's equally likely that Trump will simply block Eminem, as many others of his so-called "haters and losers" have received the same treatment.
Either way, it certainly feels like we're in for some delicious tweets from Slim at some point in the future - Trump-based or not.
