Machine Gun Kelly ‘involved in brawl’ at music festival after crowd reportedly boos him offstage

Machine Gun Kelly has reportedly been involved in a physical altercation at a music festival over the weekend.

The ‘My Ex’s Best Friend’ singer, 31, headlined the Louder Than Life festival over the weekend and was confronted by two concertgoers who jumped the barricade at his set, according to NME.

Footage shows an unidentified man shoving Kelly, who then appears to throw a punch back. Security eventually gets between the pair and it is unclear whether anyone was injured.

According to Page Six, MGK managed to finish performing the rest of his set after security pulled him away.

The physical confrontation comes after different footage was shared at the same event of the crowd appearing to boo the rapper-turned-singer.

In the separate video, the crowd can be heard chanting “you suck” before countless boos. The video also shows a section of concertgoers holding up their middle fingers directly at the ‘Bloody Valentine’ singer’s stage.

The concertgoers appeared to be standing in the area of the second main stage, awaiting the band Disturbed — who headlined that night.

However, Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, has since spoken out about the crowd, claiming there were only “20 angry” fans at the festival.

“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 tweeted.

It is speculated the festival’s audience response to Kelly’s performance is likely due to him dissing the masked metal band Slipknot at another music festival earlier this month.

“Turn the lights up. Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old, weird dudes with masks,” he said at Chicago’s Riot Fest, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

“Hey, you all know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing? Being 50 years old, wearing a f—in’ weird mask on a f—in’ stage.”
