The 31-year-old headlined the festival, which typically features heavy metal artists, in Louisville, Ky., on Saturday, September 25. According to a video posted on YouTube, an unidentified man in the crowd appeared to have shoved the "Bad Things" singer while he was performing.

MGK, who was born Colson Baker, appeared to throw a punch but it is not clear if he made contact with the man. Security got involved and the singer finished the rest of his set.

The altercation wasn't the only incident from the night: Some attendees reportedly booed MGK. In one video posted online, some members of the audience could be seen flipping off the Midnight in the Switchgrass star and shouting "you suck."

However, the "Bloody Valentine" singer took to Twitter to share his perspective. "I don’t know why the media lies in their narrative against me all the time but all I saw was 20,000 amazing fans at the festival singing every word and 20 angry ones," he wrote alongside a video shared by a fan in the audience.
