Rapper Machine Gun Kelly arrested in Ohio for starting incredibly small flash mob

Pin it

Machine Gun Kelly, a rapper from Cleveland who was recently signed to P. Diddy's Bad Boy Records, was arrested at the SouthPark Mall in Strongsville, Ohio, for inciting a flash mob with this tweet:

So as you can probably tell, this was not the most organized or complex flash mob ever to hit a Panda Express, since "RAGE" doesn't call to mind the nuanced choreography one associates with, say, Salt-n-Pepa's "Push It" or whatever the kids are flash mobbing to these days. But let's just cut to the good part — what did this felonious raging look like?

Strongsville police say the group gathered Saturday, and mall management asked three people standing on a table near a second-floor railing to step down. Kelly was among the three. When they refused, police were called.

Police say they're no longer in custody. Kelly tweeted later that "today was a statement."

Um, it's a statement all right, MGK. Just probably not the one you intended. Kelly was charged with disorderly conduct — really? There are high-school improv groups that could be more disorderly than that — and is probably brainstorming some ways to increase his Twitter following just a smidge before his next stunt.
