Watch: Machine Gun Kelly gets booed at Louder Than Life following Slipknot diss
Plenty of disgruntled Maggots turned up to Machine Gun Kelly’s Louder Than Life festival set over the weekend to make their feelings known about the musician’s recent feud with Slipknot and Corey Taylor.
Following MGK and Corey’s falling-out online last week, which all seemingly stemmed from a planned collab on last year’s Tickets To My Downfall album that didn’t work out (though both have differing reasons for why), metal fans showed up to the 18-song festival set to boo and flip-off Machine Gun Kelly while he performed.
But while a further back video uploaded by Gage Puffinbarger shows lots of middle fingers in the air, MGK took to Twitter to share a clip from closer to the stage that proved that there were also plenty of actual fans there too, clearly going wild. “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.
Check out both angles below:
MGK also brought a fan up onstage during the set to perform Halsey’s part of Forget Me Too:
