Eminem riled up and taunted San Francisco 49ers fans during their NFC Conference game against his own Detroit Lions. Slim Shady attended the crunch game at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday (January 28, 2024) and decided to mix it up with the home fans when they saw him in the executive seats.
A video captured by 49ers fans at the game saw Eminem sticking up both his middle fingers at the rival supporters and jibing with sections of the home crowd. Unfortunately for the Rap God, his antics were unable to have a positive impact on his beloved Lions, who blew a 17-point lead — and the chance to play in the franchise’s first-ever Super Bowl — in a 34-31 loss. It means the 49ers will face off against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas on February 11, where Usher will provide the halftime entertainment.
Though the Lions came up short, Eminem accepted defeat gracefully as he wrote on social media after the game: “So proud of the @Lions Thanks 4 an amazing season!!!! We’ll b back!!!” but the picture and video of him flipping the bird at 49ers fans went viral on social media.
This will go down in history 😂😂😂

Even 50 Cent enjoyed it. The New York legend posted a picture of Slim Shady and 49ers fans pointing middle fingers at each other with the caption: “Detroit is not feeling good right now! @eminem. Damn that was a good game.” 2 Chainz commented “Haha” and Uncle Murda and Cory Gunz replied laughing emojis in the comments section of the post. Check the screenshot below:
