There were reactions with one Twitter user saying, “Eminem has ended Kill You with the gun shot effects for (at least) 6 years now and this is the first time someone ever complains.”
“I hate to be the one to say it, but being someone who suffers from very mild PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), it was EXTREMELY irresponsible and distasteful to end songs w (with) the shot gun sound effect,” social media star Andrea Russett wrote on Twitter. “I have grown up loving eminem and his music but i was extremely triggered to the point of tears (sic).”
“So apparently Eminem is performing at Bonnaroo right now and a bunch of younger people are losing their s**t because his set included realistic gunshot sound effects,” another added.
“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. “this is the sad reality that we are living. this is not funny or even something to be joked about (sic).”
