Machine Gun Kelly has reacted to TikToker and Guitar Center employee Gunnar DüGrey, who claimed the musician does not play the guitar during live performances.
DüGrey accused MGK of muting the guitar using a kill switch during live concerts.
MGK replied to the TikTok, saying “I only play my guitar live,” and implores DüGrey to actually watch his performances so he “can hear the vibe.”
“You’re wearing a Liquid Death hat, and I’m also a part owner in that company. So, you’re promoting me while hating on me,” MGK added, pointing out the logo on DüGrey’s cap.
The Guitar Center employee subsequently showed a photo of Pete Davidson dressed as MGK for an “SNL” skit. “That’s not even me! You’re great,” he said.
In a follow-up video, DüGrey says, “I was wrong, and I’m happy to admit that.”
He then goes on to show that you can, in fact, rotate the kill switch so that the off and on switch directions are reverse. “Usually toggle switches [.] you have to completely rewire them to switch them, there’s no spinning,” DüGrey said. “So, I just didn’t consider that and that’s on me.”
“The other mistake I made was not really knowing anything about MGK and not listening to any of his music before posting this video,” he continued, adding a clip of a guitar solo from one of the star’s live shows. “Because I think if I had heard this, let’s just say there’s no doubt in my mind that that was an authentic MGK live solo that wasn’t piped in from anyone backstage or through the mains, anything like that.”
“I’d like to formally apologize to Mr. Kelly,” he concluded.
