Eminem draws backlash for using 'gunshot' sound effects during show

Fans slammed Eminmen over his alleged use of gunshot sounds during his Bonnaroo set

Rap icon Eminem is being criticized by some fans and defended by others for the use of pyrotechnics during his performance at the Bonaroo Music Festival over the weekend that some concert goers thought were gunshots.

Eminem caused panic among some fans at the Bonnaroo music festival when a sound effect which sounded like gunfire was used at the end of one song.

Witnesses say some fans screamed, ducked, or dropped to the ground after the sounds were heard at the end of "Kill You", Billboard reports.

Eminem headlined the Bonaroo music festival in Manchester, Tennessee on Saturday, and ended up shocking and angering a number of concert-goers with some ill-timed gunshot noises.

Rapper Eminem has sparked a heated debate online after using "gunshot" sound effects during a live show.

Another Twitter user, Sara Benyo, tweeted: "Worst decision ever to ask @Eminem to play, @bonnaroo".

'Being at a festival/concert in these current times brings new concerns and fears. Extremely realistic &scary! Would have been good to have a warning before show.

Social media star Andrea Russett was one of many in attendance at the festival who claimed to be traumatized by the sounds during Eminem's set. This is the reality we are living. 'This is not amusing or even something to be joked about'.

Another Twitter user took offense to the sound effects with the festival coming less than a year after the Las Vegas shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival that left 58 dead and countless others wounded.

Eminem uses loud gunshots in the show and people are not chill about it. Want him to go.
