Lil Jon Responds to Reports Donald Trump Called Him 'Uncle Tom' on 'Celebrity Apprentice'
The 45-year-old rapper took to Twitter after the Daily Beast reported that the Republican presidential nominee used the racial slur during a challenge on the show when Lil Jon was wearing an Uncle Sam costume.
“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,” Lil Jon wrote. “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.”
“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,” he added.
A spokesperson from the Trump campaign said, “This is simply untrue.”
