Some of the fans who saw Eminem at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee Saturday night said they were scared after Shady used a gunshot sound during his set.

"I hate to be the one to say it, but being someone who suffers from very mild PTSD, it was extremely irresponsible and distasteful to end songs with the shot gun sound effect," one person wrote. "I have grown up loving Eminem and his music, but I was extremely triggered to the point of tears."

But others said they didn't have a problem with the gunshot sound.

"So apparently Eminem is performing at Bonnaroo right now and a bunch of younger people are losing their shit because his set included realistic gunshot sound effects," another person tweeted.  "I dunno what song(s) it was from, but it sounds to me like a bunch of people became Eminem fans post 2002."

Em hasn't responded to any of this yet. Do you think he was wrong for using the effect, considering there have been mass shootings at concerts? Or are people overacting?
