Eminem denies using gunshot sound effects amid backlash

However, it appears that this doesn't apply to everybody, as Eminem has caught some criticism for using gunshots during one of his live performances.

Eminem headlined Tennessee music festival, Bonnaroo, this past weekend.

One woman tweeted that she suffers from mild PTSD and called the use of sound effects "irresponsible and distasteful".

"[Eminem] has used this effect - as have hundreds other artists - in his live show for over 10 years, including previous U.S. festival dates in 2018 without complaint", the rep said.

'I have grown up loving eminem and his music but i was extremely triggered to the point of tears'.

At the end, one loud bang can clearly be heard in footage uploaded by a fan at the concert.

Land Rover Discovery model moved to Slovakia from the UK
JLR employs some 40,000 people in total making it the UK's biggest vehicle manufacturer in terms of both output and heads. And now, with this, Land Rover has made it clear that the company will not manufacture models with low sales demand.


Eminem, photographed onstage at Coachella, is being criticized for including realistic gunshot sound effects in his Bonnaroo set.

"Being at a festival/concert in these current times brings new concerns & fears", wrote Cristi Williams on Twitter.

Eminem, 45, chose the wrong sound effects for his headlining performance at Bonnaroo on June 9. Extremely realistic &scary! Would have been good to have a warning before the show.

Supporters of Eminem back this claim and those in attendance during the performance Saturday night say they did not feel threatened at all by the concussion sounds. This is the reality we are living.

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. 'This is not amusing or even something to be joked about'.

"The Kill you outro gunshot has been part of The Eminem live shows since 2001", said the fan account Mainly Eminem.
