Kelly attacking Slipknot, of course, did not go down well the band’s loyal fans and Chuck Taylor came back armed with ‘receipts’
Machine Gun Kelly, who closed Chicago’s Riot Fest on Sunday, September 19, called out the iconic metal band Slipknot at the same time when they were closing out the same music festival from a different stage. The ‘Bloody Valentine’ hitmaker apparently asked to turn the lights on adding, “Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old, weird dudes with masks.”
Chicago Sun Times reported that the 31-year-old rapper turned punk-rocker while addressing the audience threw a shade at the band saying, “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.” Following the call out, Machine Gun Kelly, on Monday, September 20, took to Twitter to again take a dig at the band which finally provoked Slipknot’s lead vocalist Corey Taylor to hit back at the musician. Kelly attacking the metal squad, of course, did not go down well the band’s loyal fans who have been following their music since their formation in 1995. They brutally dragged Machine Gun Kelly on the Internet claiming that Eminem ended his rap career and Slipknot will end his rock career.

Why did Machine Gun Kelly diss Slipknot?
The controversy apparently goes back to when MGK wanted to collaborate with the band on his now award-winning album ‘Tickets to My Downfall’. It is believed that Kelly’s onstage diss came after Taylor in one of his recent interviews said, “I hate all new rock for the most part. I [hate]the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock and I think he knows who he is.” After the onstage mocking, MGK took to Twitter saying, “Very odd that when an artist talks s**t, and i respond, i’m the bad guy.”
He posted another tweet that revealed the reason behind the entire mess. “Corey did a verse for a song on tickets to my downfall album, it was f**king terrible, so i didn’t use it. he got mad about it, and talked s**t to a magazine about the same album he was almost on. yalls stories are all off. just admit he’s bitter.” He concluded his series of tweets with, “Don’t hate on the youth.”
