Lil Jon has come forward and said that Donald Trump once called him “Uncle Tom” during his stint on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
TMZ reports that the rapper dressed up as Uncle Sam during his season, and on more than one occasion, Trump called him Uncle Tom.
Jon reportedly posted about the incident, writing, “When this ‘Uncle Tom’ incident happened on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ in the boardroom several of my castmates 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 it’s offensiveness.”
Jon continued, “I also want to be clear that I don’t agree with many of the statements Mr. Trump has said during his current run for President.”
