Lil Jon responds to reports that Donald Trump called him an "Uncle Tom" during the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.

Earlier tonight, reports surfaced online that Donald Trump had called Lil Jon an “Uncle Tom” while filming the “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” back in 2012, and now the famous DJ/producer has already responded. Shortly after the report surfaced, Lil Jon took to twitter to give his recollection of what happened, and he admitted Trump called him that and that Trump didn’t know he was being offensive in doing so.

"[S]everal 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 saying or not, but he did stop using that term once we explained it's [sic] offensiveness."

Jon later went on to say that he hasn’t been agreeing with Trump’s campaign run and/or statements either. "I don't agree with many of the statements Mr. Trump has said during his current run for President," Jon said.
