Rapper Eminem came under fire Sunday for using gunshot sound effects during his performance at the Bonaroo music festival in Manchester, Tenn., on Saturday night, according to several news reports.

Some in the crowd were frightened and upset over what they said sounded like realistic gun shots at the end of Eminem’s song, “Kill You,” with a few taking to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

“Being at a festival/concert in these current times brings new concerns & fears,” wrote Cristi Williams, likely referring to the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas last October and the terrorist attack outside the Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017.

In the Las Vegas incident, Stephen Paddock opened fire from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino during the concert, killing 58 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

"Less than a year after Vegas and @Eminem thinks it's a good idea to blast gun shot sfx onstage at a music festival?" wrote Brad King on Twitter. "Bad call on this headliner @Bonnaroo."

Some fans, though, pointed out that the loud bangs were common for his concerts.
