Fans Tear Machine Gun Kelly Apart Over NBA Celebrity All-Star Game Performance

Machine Gun Kelly swapped the stage for the court last night at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, but it seems like a basketball career probably isn't on the cards for the singer-turned-actor.

MGK — real name Colson Baker — featured for Team Walton at this year's Celebrity All-Stars event alongside fellow hoop-loving stars including Migos' Quavo and country singer Jimmy Allen, and despite having fiancée Megan Fox and daughter Cassie present on the sidelines to cheer him on, things didn't go exactly as planned for the Tickets To My Downfall singer.

Playing in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, Kelly was widely panned for his performance, as fans took to social media to share clips of him missing shot after shot.

Unsurprisingly, Kelly's performance was immediately roasted on social media, with one person joking, 'Megan Fox, will you give me a chance if I beat your man 1v1?'

'Machine Gun Kelly putting up Tony Snell numbers in the Celebrity All Star Game. Love to see it,' another person tweeted, with a third joking, 'MGK hoops like a 2K MyPlayer that spent all of their VC on tattoos.'

'Footage of Eminem’s Son lacking any form of talent in yet ANOTHER field,' one Shady fan commented, reigniting yet another round of beef between Kelly and Eminem's fans, many of whom were keen to suggest that the rapper/singer's basketball skills were on a par with his music.

Apparently things didn't all go that badly for Kelly, who E! reports — despite not scoring — managed to get a few layups for his teammates. And despite the singer's own underwhelming stint, his team actually managed to put down a 65-51 win over the opposing Team Nique, which featured an All-Star line up including rapper Jack Harlow, NFL star Myles Garrett and comedian Tiffany Haddish.

Kelly has been doing the rounds in the world of American sports recently, with he and Fox also making an appearance at the NHL All-Star game in Las Vegas earlier this month. On that occasion Kelly didn't don pads and skates, but he was featured as the half-time performance.
