Machine Gun Kelly keeps his fighting spirit alive.
While performing at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday (Sept. 25), the rocker rocker was booed and even punched a fan who tried to confront him.
Video footage obtained by Consequence shows MGK on stage as the audience roars loudly and raises the middle finger. At one point, MGK made his way to the photo pit and was charged by some fans. One was able to get close enough and push him. MGK came back swinging, but it’s unclear if he landed the blow. Security eventually separated them.
“Half the crowd (myself included) left when he took the stage,” commented one festival-goer, while another defended him, “Dude was awesome. Stop hating new music.”
MGK was in the headlines for its beef with heavy metal band Slipknot. After Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor criticized MGK’s transition from hip-hop to pop punk, MGK revealed that Taylor would be on his album. Tickets for My Downfall, but he did not use his verse.
“corey did a verse to a song on tickets to my demise album, it was awful so i didn’t use it,” tweeted MGK. “He got mad about it and talked shit to a magazine about the same album he was almost on.”

Taylor’s follow answerMGK dissed him again during his set at Chicago’s Riot Fest. ‘You all want to know what I’m glad I’m not doing? Being 50 years old with an insanely weird mask on the fu**ing stage,” he said.
Earlier this month, the “Bloody Valentine” singer also had a run-in with Conor McGregor at the MTV Video Music Awards. During their red carpet showdown, the UFC champion reportedly threw his drink at MGK, later calling him a “vanilla boy rapper.”
