Fox posted a series of photos to her Instagram account with the caption, “But are these even costumes.” The pair were dressed as former celebrity couple Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson.
Most of their followers were delighted with their choice of Halloween outfits and how perfect they looked. But some took issue with one of the images MGK, whose real name is Colson Baker, decided to share. In it, the 32-year-old rapper appears to snort a line of cocaine off of Fox’s breasts.
While most followers didn’t believe the cocaine was real, they were still a bit upset that MGK would mock hard drug use.
“Not cool with the snorting and having teens idol [sic] you,” one fan shared.
Another agreed, writing in the comments thread, “Not sure about the ‘promoting hard drugs’ part… It is stupid as hell… Why the f*** would you do this ?”
“Him thinking it’s ok to post a video doing a fucking line is crossing a f***ing line after every artist we’ve had overdose in the past few years,” a third person agreed.
There were also plenty of fans who thought the costumes, including the cocaine prop, were hilarious.
“Oh my God dude you made me laugh so freaking hard,” one comment said.
Meanwhile, MGK has said in the past that he doesn’t do drugs. “As I grow, that same person who I was when I was 25 isn’t who I am now,” the singer said during an interview in 2020. “Currently, my drug of choice is happiness and commitment to the art, rather than commitment to a vice that I believed made the art. I’m taking steps.”
Fox and MGK are used to shocking their fans with much more scandalous behavior than mimicked drug use. Earlier this year, the pair made headlines after bragging about drinking each other’s blood following their engagement. After getting a lot of backlash, the actress explained in more detail.
“I guess to drink each other’s blood might mislead people or people are imagining us with goblets and we’re like ‘Game of Thrones’ drinking each other’s blood,” Fox told Glamour U.K. “It’s just a few drops, but yes, we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only.”
“And it is controlled where it’s like, ‘Let’s shed a few drops of blood and each drink it,’” she continued. “He’s much more haphazard and hectic and chaotic, where he’s willing to just cut his chest open with broken glass and be like, ‘Take my soul.’”
