Machine Gun Kelly Reacts To His ‘Awkward’ Formula 1 Interview

Machine Gun Kelly has reacted to the backlash for his recent Formula 1 interview.

The pop-punk singer earlier appeared in a Formula 1 race and had a short interview with the Formula 1 racer Martin Brundle. After his unexpected appearance in the race, he was seen uncomfortable and the interview eventually turned awkward. Receiving backlash for his attitude, he responded to the comments on X.

A user commented about MGK’s attitude, saying he has ‘the worst vibe’ during the interviews and that he needs media training. Replying to the comment, he wrote:

“My vibe is ‘the worst’ how? Because someone put a microphone in my face essentially forcing me to do a random interview when I was just trying to enjoy an event? Because car engines were so loud I couldn’t hear him? Please tell me more about why I’m the worst.”

MGK’s Appearance In The Event


Machine Gun Kelly attended his first Formula One event with the Brazilian Grand Prix. While he was enjoying the event, he was stopped by former Formula One driver and Sky Sports reporter Martin Brundle for a quick interview. Appearing to be uncomfortable, he quickly answered the questions and sometimes asked Brundle to repeat them since he couldn’t hear them.

After receiving criticism for his attitude during the interview, MGK made a two-sentence explanation on his X account and wrote the following:

“My anxiety has won. I hate being in public.”

MGK Still Receives Backlash

Despite the recent explanation he has made, he continues to get criticizing comments under his tweet, such as:

“Clearly didn’t enjoy it that much ’cause you left early, you complete loser.”

Some slammed him for giving the racer a thumbs down at the end of the interview:

“Your fame is the reason you were allowed in there, in return you get asked for 45 seconds of effort, yet you give the guy a thumbs down and storm off. Millions of fans watching would love to be there, the guy who gets to treats it like some huge burden. That’s why.”

A user even criticized the way he asked the racer to repeat the questions:

“Worst, no, not even close. Awkward yes. Maybe in future if you can’t hear what someone is saying, or if you don’t fully understand due to their accent, it is ok to say ‘Sorry, I didn’t quite get that’ or ‘It is very loud here, please repeat that.'”
