Fans were surprised to see Machine Gun Kelly as Felix in Netflix's 'Bird Box' and they definitely have FEELINGS about his character's exit.
Netflix's apocalyptic thriller Bird Box dropped on Friday Dec. 21 and audiences are already loving the intense film starring Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, John Malkovich, and Danielle Macdonald. Rapper Machine Gun Kelly was also in Bird Box as Felix, one of the people holed up in the house at the beginning of the film.

Who does Machine Gun Kelly play in Bird Box?
Machine Gun Kelly plays Felix in Netflix's Bird Box. When the entity initially begins to wreak havoc, the group lock themselves in the house and start trying to make sense of what is going on in the outside world.
In an interview with Galore, MGK described his character as "a pill popper named Felix who’s out for a 'delivery' when the epidemic breaks out."
Felix is an especially foul mouthed member of the group, repeating the sentiment that they are "so fucking fucked" multiple times. Early on, Felix and Lucy (Rosa Salazar) strike up a flirtation and Malorie walks in on them having sex the first night.
After the group goes on the food run (and Charlie dies saving them) Lucy and Felix steal the car and abandon everyone else at the house.
Even though he had talked about being in the film, some fans were still surprised to see MGK in Bird Box.
