Eminem upset some folks at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee last week by using gunshot sound effects 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. I have grown up loving Eminem and his music, but I was extremely triggered to the point of tears," said one gentle soul.

Others argued that if you tend to use words like "triggered" you should check out another stage when Shady takes the mic.

Em continued his festival tour this weekend by hitting Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. 

This time, he had a warning for any fans who didn't know what they may be getting into.

"If you are easily frightened by loud noises or offended by explicit lyrics, you shouldn’t be here," a video message read.

Earlier this week, Em's manager Paul Rosenberg jumped on IG and clarified that the loud noises weren't even gunshots.
