Machine Gun Kelly was on the line-up for the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. But while he definitely had fans in the audience, it was hard to ignore the number of people who booed him during his time on stage.
According to reports and some videos from the event, between songs in his set, people would hoot and even raise their hands and knock him down. The heckling would have come from metal fans who wanted to avenge the heavy metal band Slipknot. Last weekend at Riot Fest in Chicago, MGK walked out and called the group “weird old dudes with masks.” And people suspect it all stems from some bitterness on Kelly’s part after a canceled collaboration with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.
At one point during Louder Than Life, the artist threatened one of the spectators with a Star wars lightsaber that was on stage. And things even got physical. An unidentified man in the crowd shoved the performer as he sang. Security got involved, but not before MGK seemed to hit the guy opposite.
Yet despite everything that happened, MGK finished their entire set.
He later also rebuffed the idea that he only received hatred from the festival crowd. He tweeted: “I don’t know why the media lies in their story all the time against me, but all I saw was 20,000 amazing fans at the festival chanting every word and 20 angry.”
