It’s probably fair enough to assume that you might get into beef with your neighbours – or maybe even start a relationship you never thought possible with them – during lockdown, but this feud between Machine Gun Kelly and the people on his street does seem ridiculously unnecessary.

It all started when ‘Flipping Out’ star Jeff Lewis (no, I haven’t heard of him either) was speaking on his Sirius XM radio show, complaining about Machine Gun Kelly and his friends who had recently spent his birthday day drinking at his house and ignoring social distancing guidelines. Here’s what he had to say:
They still park in front of the fire hydrant.
They park in front of other people’s driveways.
It’s just like, I think they’re so f***ed up, they just park the car wherever it lands.
I guess that would be kind of annoying if you’re old and some kids who wanted to have fun all the time moved across the road. I’ve seen old people get pissed off about pretty much any kind of change in their neighbourhood, even if it’s a positive one.
Anyway, it wasn’t long before Machine Gun Kelly hit back when he was appearing on Lala Kent’s podcast and said the following:
He can’t stand me.
He doesn’t know that we know he does a podcast about us.
He doesn’t know it’ll turn into Neighbors real quick.
Imma be Zac Efron. I’m Tom Petty. Petty in all caps.
Oh shit. This doesn’t look like it’s going to end well, and it seemed like Lewis was noticeably scared as he tried to de-escalate the situation when he next spoke about it:
If they have an issue, come to me.
He said, ‘I heard you’ve been talking about us on your podcast and it’s not hot.
This guy says, ‘I’m not aggressive but some of us are.’
That is a threat. This is a nice family neighborhood, we don’t need to threaten each other with violence.
If this happens again, this guy will be spending his stimulus check on bail and attorney’s fees.
They have to understand, I don’t hate them. My neighbors hate them because my neighbors have complained about them to me.
Every time the cops show up, or every time a car gets towed, or every time someone gets a ticket, they’re assuming it’s me.
It’s not me. I didn’t call the cops.
When you Instastory a gathering, you are opening yourself up for criticism.
Thankfully, it seems like Machine Gun Kelly took these comments the right way, as he uploaded a video of him sending a bottle of champagne over to Lewis’ house via a skateboard to observe social distancing rules. What a gentleman! Maybe he is learning.

Jeff, as the new guy on the block, referring to you, I wish we had a chance to meet.
I’m sure there’s years of noise to come from my house, so I hope we have a mutual understanding.
If you ever need anything, just come knocking.
Until then, I’m going to send this over your way, cheers neighbor.
You would think that might be enough to end the feud, but unfortunately Jeff had to do that old guy thing where he gets the last word in, posting the following to his Instagram account.

Kinda leaving the door open for it to continue there isn’t it? Hopefully Machine Gun Kelly will eat it though for the sake of everyone on their street though right? Lockdown is so boring.
