In fact, some might not have even heard of Microsoft stores,” Andres Jauregui reports for The Huffington Post. “But following what might prove to be an expensive debacle at an Atlanta, Ga., mall, chances are that the two entities will be forever linked, albeit in the footnotes of tech retail history.”
“Machine Gun Kelly played a raucous gig at the Microsoft store at Lenox Square Mall on Friday, but organizers got way more than they bargained for,” Jauregui reports. “During his performance of “Hold On (Shut up),” MGK hopped up on display tables that had several laptop computers on them and began stomping around and swearing.”
“‘Fuck these computers and shit. MGK’s in this bitch,’ the rapper says in the video below. While the behavior is nothing surprising at a rap show, it appears that the Microsoft store wasn’t prepared for it,” Jauregui reports. “In videos of the incident, which were shot from several different angles, the 22-year-old rapper, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, can be seen tossing a promotional sign and drawing the ire of Microsoft store employees.
