Machine Gun Kelly Gets Into Physical Confrontation With Fans After Getting Booed

Machine Gun Kelly got into a physical confrontation with a couple of fans at a festival this weekend.

Watch the chaos unfold below:

The rapper, real name Colson Baker, was headlining the Louder Than Life festival in Kentucky on Saturday (25 September), when two fans decided to have a pop at him.

In footage shared on social media, the 31-year-old was seen jumping off the stage and joining the fans at the front of the metal gig.

Two spectators then quickly hopped over the railings and made their way towards the rapper, with one pushing him.

Clearly pretty miffed by such an affront, MGK took a wild swing at the stranger before another man came out of nowhere and attempted to spear tackle him.

Elsewhere during the performance, the crowd seemed to turn on Kelly, with fans seen booing and flipping him off during one of his songs.

And while it's not quite clear why there was so much animosity towards him, it comes after he kicked off his beef with Slipknot's frontman Corey Taylor.

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

In an interview with Cutter's Rockcast, Corey said: "I hate all new rock for the most part.

"I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock and I think he knows who he is. But that's another story."

While he didn't use MGK's name, it seems like the rockstar 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*****g weird mask on a f**king stage, talking s**t."

He also alleged Taylor helped with a song for MGK but he 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.
