Eli Porter’s infamous rap battle is one of the most controversial viral videos in recent years.
Porter participated in an emcee battle that was posted online and it appeared that Porter suffered from some sort of mental disability. As the clip was passed around, controversy erupted over whether or not people were poking fun at someone with a disability.
Filmmakers Walker Warren and Trent Babbington filmed People’s Champion, a documentary about Eli Porter and his life. The filmmakers interviewed the young man as well as others featured in the original viral video clip.
