Last week we showed you footage of Machine Gun Kelly's in-store performance at a Microsoft store in Atlanta. After jumping on display tables and flipping off employees, MGK was asked to leave the store. Well today both he and Microsoft issued official statements about the incident. Machine Gun Kelly: “Last Friday, I was asked to perform at The Source’s Power 30 reception and honored to do so. My only goal was to give a great performance. Contrary to what is being reported by the media, I did not stomp on any computers, damage any store property nor were the police called on my behalf. There was some confusion as to where I should perform. But, in the end, it was all resolved. I’d like to thank The Source for the opportunity and let the people at Microsoft know I meant no disrespect.” Microsoft: “On Sept. 28, The Source held a private event at the Microsoft Lenox Square Store. We offer our stores as a venue for the community to use, and this event was not sponsored by Microsoft. While the artist’s behavior was appropriate for a concert, some of it was not appropriate in a store environment.” You can watch the original performance footage right here.
