Machine Gun Kelly Just Can’t Stop Brawling

The singer apparently found himself in yet another scuffle; this time with a concertgoer at a Kentucky festival.

Oh bloody hell. Word has it that Machine Gun Kelly got into another brawl, and there’s nothing we can do about that now. Is this what the world is now? Rolling lockdown extensions, a Chris Pratt movie about the Super Mario Brothers and very famous grown men getting into scuffles?

Let me explain. MGK performed at a festival known as Larger Than Life in Kentucky yesterday, where he reportedly had a brawl with a concertgoer. According to Page Six, the unidentified individual shoved Machine Gun Kelly while he was singing, which sounds uncalled for, to be fair. Apparently, MGK tried to throw a punch, but it’s unclear if it was received. What we do know is that security apparently got involved and pulled the concertgoer away, allowing the singer to finish his set.

The whole evening sounded generally bad, with reports suggesting that Machine Gun Kelly was booed by audience members when he first got on stage. Apparently this has something to do with MGK having a go at the heavy metal band Slipknot, who he reportedly described as “50-year-olds wearing weird fucking masks”. Another heavy metal band, Trivium, came to Slipknot’s defence; having a punt at Machine Gun Kelly for “being 31 years old wearing a fucking 16 year old pop punk cosplay identity on a fucking stage.” They’re just… saying each other’s ages at this point.

A couple of weeks ago, Machine Gun Kelly also made headlines for getting into a reported tussle with martial artist Conor McGregor at the 2021 VMAs.

Who will this man have it out with next? Hopefully, his emotions.
