Conor McGregor and MGK saw Red on VMAs carpet after ‘photo refusal’

Machine Gun Kelly reminded fans of the time he and MMA fighter Conor McGregor had a fight on the VMAs red carpet in 2021. The scene is revisited on his Hulu show Life in Pink.

From losing his father in 2020 to his public feud with Conor, MGK has opened up on the new show about the ins and outs of not just his professional life, but also how the media has helped shape his reputation as a musician.

Videos shared on the documentary see Conor McGregor and MGK getting angry with each other in public. Cosmopolitan reported that the Fall Out Boy member pushed the fighter before Conor threw a drink at him in retaliation.

Why did Conor throw a drink at MGK?

Insiders tell TMZ that Conor said hello and asked MGK for a photo, which the musician declined. MGK then allegedly pushed the MMA fighter away, leading to Conor throwing a drink at him and the beautiful Megan Fox.

A photo showed Conor with his fist pointed in MGK’s face after the Fall Out Boy musician said something that couldn’t be heard properly, before MGK security pushed Conor away. Conor was reportedly confused about the ordeal.

Apparently, Conor ended up tripping and spilling his drink after being pushed. When he recovered, sources said Conor threw whatever was left of his drink at MGK. Conor claimed he never asked for a photo.

MGK talks about VMA disagreement

During MGK’s documentary Life in Pink on Hulu, he details the events between him and Conor McGregor that transpired at the 2021 VMAs red carpet event. MGK says he “feels like the world hated”.

Another clip showed MGK punching a guy at a Louder Than Life event in 2021. Thrown drinks are nothing new for MGK, as the documentary proves he is often prone to drinks falling in his face. .

Despite the hate he endured as a musician, MGK revealed that the “media wrote him off” before adding that through it all he “never gave up”. After the clip of his feud with Conor, cameras showed him with his head in his hands.

The musician’s quarrels with other stars

MGK has had public feuds with musicians G-Eazy, Eminem, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Halsey in the past. MGK and Eminem put things right, but another drama remained open.

Last year, MGK ripped the Slipknot frontman while on stage at Riot Fest, saying he was glad he wasn’t “50 years old wearing a weird af*****g mask on a stage af*****g”. But he has since admitted he “should have handled it differently”.

His feud with G-Eazy began after G-Eazy’s relationship with Halsey ended and photographs of MGK and Halsey surfaced together. In 2018, G-Eazy bleached his hair blonde, which MGK said was an attempt to look like him.
