“Coming from a performing stand point, i get the effect of sound effects on stage, but there’s a certain point that cross’s the line. i’m one of Eminem’s number 1 fans but to hear 3 gun shots coming straight from his set had me scared af. not gonna lie. especially in this world..”

Interesting how people see things (events) differently. One truth remains though- these are definitely sensitive times. Too sensitive to take such lightly. Don’t you think?
