Machine Gun Kelly slammed a former fan who declared that they were not going to support his music anymore if he was going to attend a George Floyd protest.
Machine Gun Kelly said "sayonara" to a racist fan after they told him he'd lost their support because he was attending a protest for George Floyd. For several days now, folks have taken to the streets to protest the unjust murder of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis. One such protester fighting for the end of police brutality and racial injustice was Machine Gun Kelly, who was seen attending the protests in L.A. MGK has been very vocal since George Floyd's murder, taking to Twitter to denounce "white privilege," "the system," and "the Boyz" (cops). He also happily bid adieu to one of his fans who appeared not to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

"On my way to the protest," MGK tweeted on Saturday (May 30th). "See you out there." A troll then felt the need to reply to the tweet, telling MGK that he was "on my way to delete all your albums now." This did not bother the rapper/singer in the slightest; in fact, he told the former fan, "good, i don’t want your racist money."
On Thursday (June 4th), MGK and his good friend, Travis Barker, decided to cover of Rage Against The Machine's "Killing In The Name" in further protest of systemic racism and police brutality. Along with the cover, he shared a music video compiled of footage of the L.A. protests as well as him and Travis jamming out in the studio.
