Microsoft Store Rapper Backfires

A rapper named Machine Gun Kelly (he probably was born this way) was invited to perform at Microsoft's new store in Atlanta.

Microsoft should have done some research. A simple Google or even Bing search would have revealed the guy is an attention-seeking nut. Seems Machine Gun has a habit of getting arrested during publicity stunts (he needs a few more stunts as I had never heard of the guy).

One store opening attendee filmed the performance in which Kelly leapt on a table, stomped on computer and released a flurry of expletives denigrating the computers he was hired to promote.

He eventually came down from the tables (not sure when he came down on whatever he was possibly on besides a monster ego trip) and was led away by security.

Ditto what charliej said. Rap is one of the leading factors in the degradation of American society, as a whole. Why would MS lower themselves to such a standard and then expect anything more than this outcome?

A rapper being arrested for vandalism and foul language. Whodathunkit? That's sooo out of character for the majority of them.

Just a lame Microsoftie attempt to be cool.
