Machine Gun Kelly’s Tour Bus Was Vandalized With Homophobic Slurs
Machine gun Kelly has been touring the nation as part of his Mainstream Sellout tour. The journey has already had its ups and downs; following a performance at Madison Square Garden, MGK shattered glass in his face, forcing him to bleed severely. When she discovered that someone had passed out in the audience in Pittsburgh, Willow Smith, MGK’s opening act, was forced to interrupt her performance.
Now that Kelly is scheduled to perform in Omaha, Nebraska, some residents have not been kind to him. One of the rapper’s tour vans was defaced with homophobic graffiti as soon as it entered the country.
The red tour bus for MGK was spray-painted on both sides. The graffiti artists depicted an ejaculating penis on one side. They wrote “Rap demon f****t” over the other side. Kelly’s team claims that the bus was vandalized while it was parked on a curb in downtown Omaha.
According to TMZ, Machine Gun is touring with at least four buses, including a red, a yellow, a blue, and a green vehicle. Only the red bus appears to have been damaged.
After the tour, MGK’s punk sound will reportedly be ending. Kelly explained to Kevan Kenney of Audacy Check In that following, “I’m going to make a rap album for myself,” he stated. “For no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder. If I keep doing things to prove things to people, I’m going to one, drive myself crazy and two, not make a good product.” He went on to claim that he didn’t regret making his rock albums, saying “I made Tickets and Mainstream Sellout because I wanted to make them… I need to now also make people miss that sound.”
