Machine Gun Kelly came face to face with a stage crasher while speaking at the 2023 Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit.
An unidentified man stormed the stage during the rocker's A Playbook To Building An Empire: Town Hall With Machine Gun Kelly event in Cleveland, Ohio, Oct. 10, prompting MGK to leap to his feet, his hands balled into fists.
"My man, get the f--k away from me!" the 33-year-old told the stage crasher, as seen in Instagram videos shared by fans. "Yo, what are you doing? What are you doing? This is a bad look. Don't make me do this."
A security guard then grabbed the man and removed him from the stage as the "Bad Things" singer, MGK, whose real name is Colson Baker, took his seat again.
When the interviewer asked him if he was OK, he said, "You know what? Maybe that was a good idea for him 'cause maybe he had a great idea."
"I'm sorry, I try to live in the dichotomy more on this side than the other guy," he explained. "I left that guy in the past. I'm really sorry. I do apologize for my primal reaction."
Kelly returned to address the crashing incident later on during the chat, noting how he still affected by it. "I can't lie, my energy's a little like, scattered," he said. "I empathize and feel for the guy but yeah, it is a time and a place."
He continued, "I don't ever wanna shoot down anyone's dream. Part of me is like, I definitely am an empath...as he was getting dragged away, I looked in his eyes and I was like, 'Ah, you're a good kid.'"
