Eminem calls out Drew Brees in NSFW verse on latest track

New Orleans Saints, NFL

Eminem is putting Drew Brees and his controversial statements back in the spotlight.

Just when New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees thought that he had finally put his national anthem comments to bed, the rap world has reignited that fire with some incendiary lyrics — courtesy of Eminem.

In a new song called “The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady” in which he shares top billing with Kid Cudi, Em went right after Brees. The very direct line of “F*** Drew Brees” appears around the 1:50 mark of the song.

In case you had any doubts over what Eminem thought about the Saints signal-caller, he just emphatically cleared that up.

Drew Brees’ national anthem comments are still hurting him

Brees, fresh off a season in which he completed an astonishing 74.3 percent of his passes to go along with 27 touchdowns and just four interceptions in 11 starts, turned the entire NFL against him after he foolishly claimed that anyone protesting during the national anthem is disrespecting the flag, which completely missed the mark.

Like so many others who criticized the likes of Colin Kaepernick, Brees failed to understand that those protests were condemning systemic racism and police brutality, and redirecting the conversation onto the flag, patriotism, and the military is nothing more than dog-whistling.

The 41-year-old spent the next few days apologizing profusely, during which he sounded pretty genuine in his remorse. Eventually, the hullabaloo surrounding his choice of language largely died down, even if a few noteworthy individuals like Eminem haven’t forgotten his original comments.

Brees might have apologized up and down for his comments about the anthem and the flag, but even his relentless desire to right his wrongs clearly hasn’t satisfied all parties. As Eminem proved, some people will just never be able to forgive Brees for his initial comments, and the future Hall of Famer might have to live with that.
