Lil Jon has confirmed that Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump called him an “Uncle Tom” in 2013 during a taping of Celebrity Apprentice. According to several producers during an interview with The Daily Baest, Lil Jon had dressed in an Uncle Sam costume to promote a product and then Trump proceeded to refer to the rapper as “Uncle Tom” throughout the taping.
Trump reportedly didn’t know it was a derogatory term and was getting “Uncle Sam” and “Uncle Tom” confused (yeah right). Comedian and actor Arsenio Hall was also apparently present at that taping and voiced his concerns to Trump and producers as well.
The King of Crunk took to Twitter and confirmed the slander, writing,
“When this ‘Uncle Tom’ incident happened on Celebrity Apprentice in the boardroom several of my cast mates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment. I can’t say if he knew what he was actually saying or not, but he did stop using that term once we explained its offensiveness. I also want to be clear that I don’t agree with many of the statements Mr. Trump has said during his current run of President.”
So what y’all think? Does Donald deserve an A-town stomp or was he just confused?
