Tough crowd! Machine Gun Kelly's Louder Than Life Festival performance resulted in him having a spat with a member in the audience.
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.
"Literally it people wayyy on the other side of the other stage in the back who was booing thinking they were doing something," one concert-goer responded to MGK.
"@machinegunkelly the haters are far outnumbered. WE LOVE YOU. this is coming from someone front row last night. Amidst all the kicks and elbows to the face from crowd surfers, we never stopped singing with you. Love you. Love you. Love you," another fan wrote.
"it was the best night EVER," a third fan gushed.
Both artists performed at Riot Fest in Chicago on Sunday, September 19. MGK slammed Slipknot during his performance and said he was glad he wasn't "50 years old wearing a f*****g weird mask on a f******g stage, talking s**t."
He alleged on Twitter that Taylor "did a verse for a song on tickets to my downfall album, it was f*****g terrible, so i didn’t use it. he got mad about it, and talked shit to a magazine about the same album he was almost on. yalls stories are all off. just admit he’s bitter."
According to the screenshots, Barker, who was a producer on Tickets To My Downfall, seemed to have sent "notes" from MGK to the Taylor about his verse on a song. Taylor responded and said he didn't think he was the right fit for the track.
