During SEETHER’s set at Louder Than Life, Morgan congratulated the audience on their response, and shared more details in an interview on Loudwire Nights.
“I congratulated the crowd for booing that prick off the stage,” Morgan said. “Here’s my thing — you were a rapper, you got rapped out of rapping because you got so owned by Eminem. Then you come to rock for example, and it’s more pop punk than anything else as I consider it, but yeah, I just had to say something.
“I was proud of those people. I didn’t feel like you belong on a stage like that after one or two singles just because you’ve got a name and a fancy girlfriend and now you’re a big headliner at a rock festival. And especially not when you take on one of metal’s greatest singers and you think that you’re gonna get away with it.”
Morgan added, “I was very impressed by them and I had to thank them, and I had to let them know that they were doing God’s work.”
MGK was booed after he threw shade at SLIPKNOT, saying he was glad to not be a 50-year-old wearing a mask.
Before going into his track “Jawbreaker,” MGK said to to crowd. “Hey, you wanna know what I’m really happy that I’m not Being 50 years old wearing a f*cking weird mask on a f*cking stage. Fu*king sh*t. So anyway, what’s everyone’s favorite candy? Reese’s Pieces?”
A few hours later, Kelly followed up with his comments in a tweet, saying that Corey Taylor did a verse for his album Tickets to My Downfall and “it was f*cking terrible,” so he didn’t use it.
Not long after, Corey issued a response, writing: “I don’t like people airing private sh*t like a child. So this is all I’ll say: I didn’t do the track because I don’t like when people try to ‘write’ for me. I said no to them. So without further ado…. #receipts. This is all I’m going to say about it.”
