Machine Gun Kelly Gets Pelted With Bottles And Booed During Music Festival Gig

Machine Gun Kelly Gets Pelted With Bottles And Booed During Music Festival Gig

Machine Gun Kelly has had another awkward run in with fans during a music festival performance in the US.

The rockstar was performing at Aftershock in Sacramento, California alongside some massive acts like Metallica, The Misfits, My Chemical Romance and The Offspring.

During his set, MGK, real name Colson Baker, made his way to the roof of a huge tent in the middle of the crowd (probably designed for audio and lighting control).


He busted out the song 'Nothing Inside' and many people looked like they were enjoying themselves by waving their hands in the air and throwing their rock hands towards the singer.

However, while he was on top of the tent, the musician saw some fans throw water bottles at his direction, with one narrowly missing him.

When he noticed a bottle come from behind him, he turned towards that part of the crowd and gave the thrower the middle finger.

After he finished the track, unmistakable boos rang out in the arena as he awkwardly climbed down from the tent.


He addressed the crowd saying: "How the f**k you feelin' Aftershock? Mixed opinions. I love you so much. This morning I was like, 'Do we get on the plane and go to this?'

"I was sitting there thinking about the last festival we did where this 10-year-old got her poster ripped up just for liking me. I'm doing this show for her and everyone who came to see us."

This awkward moment comes just a few weeks after he was similarly booed and flipped the middle finger at Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky.


The bad vibes erupted when MGK finished his song 'Concert for Aliens' and told everyone to put their hands in the air and for people to get on each other's shoulders.

But YouTube footage shows there was a vocal minority of people who weren't keen on seeing him sing.

Tempers escalated when the rapper-turned-rocker hopped down into the photo pit below the stage at the festival and was ambushed by two festival goers.


They hopped over the barricade and rushed over to the 31-year-old singer, who threw a punch at them.

Security swept in to move the audience members away and Machine Gun Kelly seemingly continued to perform.

It's unclear exactly what prompted the outrage at MGK, however it came just after the artist got in a tit-for-tat with Slipknot's frontman Corey Taylor.

It all started when Corey seemingly threw shade at Machine Gun Kelly for trying to cross over genres to remain relevant.


While he didn't use MGK's name during an interview, it seems like Baker took it personally and lobbed some choice words back.

Kelly used some time during his slot at Riot Fest to slag off Slipknot, telling the crowd: "Hey, you wanna know what I'm really happy that I'm not doing? Being 50 years old wearing a f**king weird mask on a f**king stage, talking s**t."

He also alleged Corey helped with a song for MGK but Baker said it was terrible. A few days later, the Slipknot frontman explained their beef on Twitter.

"I don't like people airing private s**t like a child," he said. "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.
