Gunshot sound effects during Eminem's Bonnaroo set Saturday night angered several people who later criticized Eminem for using them.

It ended up sparking a debate on social media over whether such sound effects are appropriate with the recent mass shootings.

Lots of people were criticizing Eminem and one Twitter user said, “Less than a year after Vegas and @Eminem thinks it's a good idea to blast gun shot sfx onstage at a music festival? Bad call on this headliner @Bonnaroo.”

However, there were people who defended him 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”
