Machine Gun Kelly was arrested Saturday for organizing a flash mob via Twitter.
The rapper organized a flash mob at a Cleveland Mall this past weekend. According to CBS, Kelly was among three people standing on a table. After refusing to get down, police were called in and arrested them. Kelly was ultimately charged with disorderly conduct.
Prior to the event, the rapper tweeted, “I’m thinking about doing a flash mob at a mall or something tomorrow lol cleveland should we do one while I’m home?”
And again, “Today we flash mob NO MATTER WHAT! 5pm at SouthPark mall in the foodcourt, wear disquises, dont move to you hear “Cleveland” play then RAGE!”
After the incident, the rapper took to his Twitter again and posted, “If having fun with my fans and bringin the rage back to my hometown means I have to be arrested…then keep pulling the cuffs out.”
A video of the event was later posted on YouTube for all to see. The caption read, “Machine Gun Kelly and his fans shut down South Park Mall in Strongsville, OH after a planned flash mob ended up gettin way to crazy…still cant believe this many fans came and raged!!! Lace Up!!!!”
Kelly, who was just signed to Bad Boy Records, isn’t the only one in trouble with the law after a Twitter post. A few weeks ago, the rapper, The Game, incited a telephone flash mob after he tweeted, “Call @wakstar for internship…. Lol he answering all bws phones today” and linked a phone number. The tweet incited a telephone flash mob at the emergency phone system at one of the busiest stations of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department.
According to the Huffington Post, the phones at the southeast L.A. County station started ringing at 5:23 p.m. Friday and were jammed for two hours. The sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker reportedly sent two tweets to the rapper asking him to take down the number but only after the third request, the rapper finally took down the number. The Game responded and said that his account had been hacked and also tweeted that it was an accident.
