Eminem faces back­lash over gun­shot sound ef­fects

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Eminem has been ac­cused of caus­ing panic at one of his con­certs by us­ing re­al­is­tic gun­shot sounds, but the rap­per has de­nied the claims.

The 45-year-old artiste in­vited the ire of ad­mir­ers on so­cial me­dia when a sound ef­fect which sounded like gun­fire was used at the end of his 2000 song Kill You dur­ing the Bon­na­roo Mu­sic and Arts Fes­ti­val. Footage from the show, shows the au­di­ence scream­ing and duck­ing for cover af­ter hear­ing the sounds.

The rap­per’s spokesper­son rub­bished the claims: “The ef­fect was a py­rotech­nic con­cus­sion which cre­ates a loud boom. He has used this ef­fect — as have hun­dreds other artists — in his live show for over 10 years, in­clud­ing pre­vi­ous US fes­ti­val dates in 2018 with­out com­plaint.”
