Machine Gun Kelly Threw a Punch at a Louder Than Life Festival Attendee

The rapper, Machine Gun Kelly was filmed punching a fan who jumped the barrier at his Louder Than Life festival performance in Louisville, Kentucky, this past weekend.

Two fans were seen to have leaped over the barrier and got near Kelly while the rapper performed in the photo pit, according to a video that has been circulating on social media. One of the fans shoved Machine Gun Kelly before the security could pull them away.

While security attempted to separate the fan from Kelly, the 31-year-old rapper smacked him in the face. Kelly then continued his performance.

The “Lonely” rapper also chastised media sources such as Rolling Stone for reporting that Kelly was “booed relentlessly” throughout his performance.

According to videos released online, the attendees in the audience booed and chanted “you suck” during Kelly’s entire performance on stage.

“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,” Kelly added in a tweet resharing another video of supporters singing his lyrics during the performance.

Kelly’s agents have been contacted for comment, but no response has been received.

After mocking the heavy metal band Slipknot earlier this month at Chicago’s Riot Fest, Kelly recently attracted backlash from fans. Kelly told the Chicago Sun-Times that while speaking with fans that came to his set rather than Slipknot’s during the festival, he said, “Turn the lights up. Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old, weird dudes with masks.”

Kelly was also involved in an argument with MMA fighter Conor McGregor earlier this month at MTV’s Video Music Awards. McGregor was seen tossing a drink at Kelly during the occasion, and security had to separate them. Kelly made no comment on the event, and McGregor later stated that the two had no “issue.”
