Eminem & Slipknot fans unite after MGK dissed the legendary band live on stage

At Riot Fest in Chicago Sunday night, the 31-year-old Machine Gun Kelly took aim at the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Slipknot, who were performing on another stage during MGK’s set.

“Hey, you want to know what I am really happy that I am not doing? Being 50 years old wearing a f**king weird mask on a fucking stage, talking s**t. So, anyway, what is everyone’s favorite candy? Reece’s Pieces?” said the Cleveland-rapper-now-turned-to-punk-rocker.

Later MGK added: “Turn the lights up. Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old weird dudes with masks.” 

Back in February, Corey Taylor, the lead vocalist and lyricist of the band, appeared on Cutter’s Rockcast podcast, where the singer shaded musicians who changed genres.

“I hate the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock — and I think he knows who he is. But that is another story. I am the worst and I hate everything. People are used to that with me, though. But I have also encouraged a younger generation to think past the boundaries of what we listen to.”

Last year, in an interview with Dave Franco for Interview Magazine, MGK revealed that his last hip-hop album Hotel Diablo ‘was not welcomed because of the infamous Eminem beef.’

In many occasions, Corey Taylor has showed respect and love to Eminem and expressed his desire to do a song with Detroit legend. For that reason, Slim Shady and Slipknot fans unite to force Machine Gun Kelly leave Rock too. Check some of the best reactions below:
