Celebrity Dirt

Colson Baker aka Machine Gun Kelly arrives for the "Taurus" photocall during the 72nd Berlinale International Film Festival Berlin at Grand Hyatt Hotel on February 13, 2022 in Berlin, Germany.

A “disturbing” interview with Machine Gun Kelly from 2012 has resurfaced on Twitter, where he has been called upon to “apologize to Black women.” Alice Glass, formerly of the band Crystal Castles, shared the clip from the 2012 BET Awards red carpet with the caption: “I’m sorry I have to give a trigger warning for this one. this video of mgk is disturbing.”

In the video, Machine Gun Kelly states that “Black girls give the best h—” before calling a woman off-camera a “b—-”.

After sharing the clip, Glass wrote: “Why, as a white man, would you ever talk like this? fetishizing black women and in such a disrespectful way!? Show respect for Black Women whose culture you are appropriating. Apologize for this @machinegunkelly this was beyond disgusting.”

Glass added, “But all this isn’t just about one artist. there is a bigger picture here. This is about how men who act like this are still given power and opportunities in an industry that willfully perpetuates sexist, racist and abusive behavior. It needs to change.”

After sharing the clip, the woman who had interviewed Kelly for the video commented on the thread, saying, “This is me in the video. Girl give it a rest. I asked him a question and he answered. The end. I didn’t ask for you to put on a cape on my behalf. I’ll holler if I need you.”

The rapper and singer, whose real name is Colson Baker, is scheduled to release his new album Mainstream Sellout this week.

Tickets for Mainstream Sellout Tour, featuring special guests Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, Willow, Trippie Redd and more go on sale this Friday, March 25.
