Machine Gun Kelly’s tour bus was vandalized with a graphic image and homophobic slur before their show in Omaha, Nebraska, on Thursday, Page Six can confirm.
Photos circulating online showed that the “Emo Girl” singer’s red bus had been marked with the words “Rap Devil F—-t” on one side in yellow paint and an image of a large penis ejaculating on the other. side of the vehicle. .
An Omaha police spokesperson exclusively tells Page Six that no arrests have yet been made, but that there is an active investigation into the incident.
“An official report has been made and that will be assigned to a detective for follow-up,” says the public information officer.
The Omaha police officer adds that the bus was returned to normal as “all spray paint was easily removed and there was no permanent damage to the tour bus.”
It’s unclear if charges will be filed, but the PIO also explains that it would be up to the bus rental company, Russel Coach Company, to decide if they want to.
“Technically, since they own the vehicle, it’s up to them whether they want to press charges or not,” the officer says. “When the case is assigned to one of our detectives, they will contact the Russell Coach Company and if they decide to decline to press charges, the case will not be investigated further. “
The vandalism took place outside the Omaha CHI Health Center, where Kelly is scheduled to perform in a few hours. It is not clear if she will continue to take the stage.
The “Bloody Valentine” singer’s representative did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
On Wednesday, Kelly showed off her colorful tour bus lineup on her Instagram Stories.
He proudly wrote about the clip, “Taking the Power Rangers to OMAHA,” while filming a series of parked buses painted yellow, red, green, and blue.
MGK, who is engaged to Megan Fox, has not commented on the homophobic attack on him on social media.
Ever since the “Rap Devil” singer embarked on his “Mainstream Sellout” tour this summer, there have been a few examples of things going wrong.
During one of his first shows in Detroit on June 3, a prop helicopter he uses to fly onto the stage experienced some turbulence, according to Loudwire.
Then in July, a fan groped him while he was performing at a show in Portland, Oregon, after his star-studded concert in Los Angeles.
