Eminem performs at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on Saturday

Eminem is drawing criticism from festival-goers who were frightened and upset over the rapper's use of realistic gunshot sound effects during his headlining performance at Bonnaroo Saturday night (June 9).

The rapper was performing his song Kill You, off his 2000 album The Marshall Mathers LP, and during the track, what sounds like gunshots can be heard. "I have grown up loving Eminem and his music but I was extremely triggered to the point of tears".

"To hear a gun shot sound effect and see the entire crowd drop to the floor out of instinct is not funny, cute, or amusing", she added.

In that bloodbath - the deadliest mass shooting in US history - gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire with an assault rifle from a hotel room overlooking the festival, killing 58 and wounding over 800 more. "He has used this effect - as have hundreds other artists - in his live show for over 10 years, including previous U.S. festival dates in 2018 without complaint".

Video from the performance quickly made its way online, and viewers were outraged given its been less than a year since the Route 91 Harvest Festival Shooting in Las Vegas. "The effect used by Eminem in his set at Bonnaroo was a pyrotechnic concussion which creates a loud boom".

"Eminem needs stop poppin off guns during his show. literally has everyone ducking, weaving AND bobbing", one Twitter user wrote, noticing the crowd reaction.

Many fans were also quick to point out the gunshot sound effects have been a regular aspect of Eminem's live shows and music for years.
