Machine Gun Kelly has remained a controversial figure for quite some time. Before getting mainstream attention due to his highly publicized relationship with Megan Fox, MGK was a moderately popular hip-hop artist. Now, some things that Machine Gun Kelly said early in his career are causing a stir.

MGK started out as a rapper and gained success he enjoys today because of hip-hop fans. However, MGK is drawing immense criticism from his fans. A clip of him talking disrespectfully about black women on the 2012 BET Awards has resurfaced.

While being interviewed by a reporter on the red carpet, MGK made the claim that “black women give the best head.” He continued by making the comparison that white women give average h*ad. “Black girls either give the best head or say you don’t give h*ad. White girls just give h*ad.” MGK didn’t just stop there, he had an alarming response to a woman who was seemingly furious about his comment.

Fed up with his fetishizing, racist and sexist remarks, a black woman standing behind the reporter walked away in protest. The “Emo Girl” didn’t take her reaction too well. Upon noticing her leave, he heckled after her saying, “Bitch walk the f*ck away then. You f*cking dirty, pig bitch.” He then went on to judge her appearance and stated, “Weak ass dress and fake Louis Vuitton purse. I’ll go in on this bitch.”

The person who reuploaded the video is a Canadian singer by the name of Alice Glass. The singer demanded answers for MGK’s behavior while accusing him of appropriating black culture. However, the journalist who was interviewing MGK, Stephanie O, is unfazed by the situation. “Girl give it a rest. I asked him a question and he answered. The end.” she wrote to Alice, via twitter.

Colson Baker aka MGK has had a problematic past. He has been called out for publicly saying inappropriate things about Kendall Jenner and Eminem’s daughter, Hailie. MGK made sexual remarks about both women while they were still minors.
