Eminem sent out a message to fans at Firefly Festival amid controversy over the use of “gunshot” sound effects in his set. After he was roundly criticised at Bonnaroo for including the noises in his performance, the rapper’s manager stated they were, in fact, a “pyrotechnic concussion, which creates a loud boom.”

Ahead of his headlining appearance in Delaware, a message from Eminem appeared on the big screens either side of the Main Stage. “If you are easily frightened by loud noises or offended by explicit lyrics you shouldn’t be here,” it read.”

Meanwhile, Game Of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner recently showed off her rapping skills by delivering a word-for-word rendition of Eminem’s ‘The Real Slim Shady’.

The actor gave her performance while appearing on The Late Late Show With James Corden last week (June 22). The host challenged her to show off her talents after she told him she spits “pure fire”.
