The criticism comes in wake of the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last year that left dozens of people dead.
A spokesperson for Eminem told Billboard , "contrary to inaccurate reports, Eminem does not use gunshot sound effects during his live show. The effect used by Eminem in his set at Bonnaroo was a pyrotechnic concussion which creates a loud boom. He has used this effect - as have hundreds of other artists - in his live show for over 10 years, including previous U.S. festival dates, without complaint."
