Eminem used realistic gunshot sounds during his performance at the Bonnaroo music festival and had fans screaming and ducking and now people are calling him out. To be fair Eminem has been using these sound effects for years, but with the rise of mass shootings, maybe it’s time he stops. A rep for Eminem says the sfx used is not a gunshot, but a pyrotechnic concussion which creates a loud boom. He has used this effect - as have hundreds of other artists - in his live show for over 10 years, including previous U.S. festival dates, without complaint.
