During his headlining performance at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Eminem frightened members of his audience in Manchester, Tennessee when he used realistic gunshot sound effects.

Billboard reports that "fans screamed and ducked as a series of loud blasts rang through the crowd during Eminem's performance of 'Kill You,' from his 2000 album, The Marshall Mathers LP." Many are deeming this artistic move highly insensitive not only because of the recent gun violence killings in the country, but particularly because of last year's deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas.

Critics calling out Eminem include 20-year-old pop singer Macy Kate, and fellow Bonnaroo performer CYN.

Eminem has yet to issue a public statement since his performance and respond to his critics.
