Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has hit back at Machine Gun Kelly after he made a public dig at him this weekend.
The musical crossover beef that we never knew we needed unfolded at Riot Fest in Chicago, where both MGK and Slipknot were performing at the same time.
Addressing the crowd, rapper Kelly - real name Colson Baker - said: "Hey, you wanna know what I'm really happy that I'm not doing?
"Being 50 years old wearing a f*****g weird mask on a stage, talking s**t."
Later on in the show, according to the Chicago Sun-Time, Kelly aimed another barb at the band.
Before a run-through of 'All I Know', he said: "Turn the lights up.
"Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old weird dudes with masks."
The 31-year-old went on to say that Taylor did a verse for one of his songs, but it was 'f*****g terrible' so he 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.
Taylor has now responded to the claims, calling MGK 'a child' and sharing some eye-opening screengrabs.
In a tweet, the 47-year-old said: "I don't like people airing private s**t like a child.
"So this is all I'll say: I didn't do the track because I don't like when people try to 'write' for me. I said NO to THEM.
"So without further ado.... #receipts. This is all I'm going to say about it."
The aforementioned 'receipts' appear to show messages from Kelly, stating that Taylor had 'f*****g killed it' and that he's 'stoked' and 'honoured' that he was going to be featured on the track.

The second image appears to be Taylor's response, in which he declines to be on the track.
The messages reads: "So I listened to the ideas and to be honest, I don't think I'm the right guy for the track.
"Nothing personal, I just think if this is what MGK is looking for, someone else is the guy to do it.
"It's all good and I'm stoked for him - I hope you guys find the right fit for it. Hope you understand and I wish you guys the best with it. If I can help in any way, let me know."
