Rapper Lil Jon said Friday that Donald Trump referred to him as "Uncle Tom" when the hip-hop star appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice."

Lil Jon said in a statement posted on Twitter that "several of my castmates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment ... [and] he did stop using that term once we explained it's [sic] offensiveness."

The Daily Beast reported Friday that Trump referred to Lil Jon as "Uncle Tom" after hearing that the rapper had dressed as Uncle Sam to advertise a hair product as part of a competition on season 6 of the star-studded NBC reality show.
