Eminem faces backlash over gunshot sound effects
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.”
