Eminem is facing criticism for using the sound of gunshots during his performance at the 2018 Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee on Saturday.

Kill You has often used the sound in its performance, however another user said: 'Doesn't matter if eminem has had gun shot effects in the past, the crowd was actually scared and shaken up because of how actually realistic it is'.

'When Eminem let off the gunshot sound effect, the whole place went silent because we all thought it was real, ' one agreed.

'He has used this effect - as have hundreds other artists - in his live show for over 10 years, including previous USA festival dates in 2018 without complaint, ' the spokesperson added. Following the mass shooting at Las Vegas' Route 91 Harvest Festival previous year, Eminem's controversial artistic decision has been branded "EXTREMELY irresponsible and distasteful" by one attendee. "I have grown up loving Eminem and his music but I was extremely triggered to the point of tears", reports Billboard.

User @sandwahhh wrote 'I was having a good time at eminem's set then he played a realistic gunshot noise'. "This is the sad reality that we are living. this is not amusing or even something to be joked about".

Three separate gunshot-type sounds rang out during his set, which sparked tweets disparaging the Detroit rapper because of the timing of the effects amid recent mass shootings, the Tennessean reported.

He added: "They could warn the crowd or they could not do [the song]".
