Eminem Receives Backlash for Using Realistic Gun Noises at Festival

blogged by @alyse.mone⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#Eminem is receiving some criticism for using realistic gun sound effects at a recent Bonnaroo performance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With gun violence being a top issue in today’s society, festival goers felt as though it was very insensitive, irresponsible and quite traumatizing. Especially with the deadly mass shooting that happened last year at the Route 91 Country Music Festival in Vegas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many fans screamed and ducked during Eminem’s performance of “Kill You” as the gunshots effects were “fired”. Social Media star and actress Andrea Russett was in attendance and tweeted a few things about her experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I have grown up loving Eminem and his music but I was extremely triggered to the point of tears.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“To hear a gunshot sound effect and see the entire crowd drop to the floor out of instinct is not funny, cute or amusing. This is the sad reality that we are living. This is not funny or even something to be joked about.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many fans agree with her point. Eminem has not yet made a statement regarding his Bonnaroo performance, however, his manager has since released a statement.

  1. Okay people are really over sensitive at this point. Anyone that complained about this I would want to look at their playlist and if any of the songs on there have gun shot sounds they need to STFU! If they that scared then they need to stay at home!
