Following the Travis Scott concert that ended in 8 deaths, a video has resurfaced of the rapper encouraging a massive crowd to beat up a fan who “allegedly” tried to take Scott’s shoe while he was crowd surfing.
After jumping into the crowd, a fan tries to take the rapper’s shoe, to which Scott immediately tells the rest of the crowd to “Get that motherf*****!” He points at the fan in question and then tells all his concertgoers to “F*** him up!”, encouraging the huge mass of people to attack a single fan together.
The boy eventually gets over the barricade and out of the crowd and is then thrown out of the concert by Scott. As he leaves, Scott begins to boo him and even spits at him as he walks by.
All of this simply because an excited fan went a bit too far. And really, what did Travis Scott expect when jumping into an entire crowd of excited fans that he encourages to get wild and “rage” with him.
This is quite contradictory to what Travis Scott is claiming after eight fans died at his last concert. “My fans really mean the world to me, and I always want to leave them with a positive experience,” Travis said in a statement following the horrific events last weekend.
Other events showing Travis Scott’s blatant disregard for his fans’ safety include encouraging a fan to jump from a second-floor balcony into the crowd below at a concert in 2017, telling him “don’t be scared!”.
At this same concert, a young fan, Kyle Green, was pushed off a third-floor balcony and was left paralyzed. After hearing about the deaths that occurred at the recent concert, Green’s attorney shared that he was devastated to hear what happened, and really angry that Travis hasn’t learned from what has happened in the past.
Clearly, there were many warning signs leading up to the tragedy of last weekend, and no matter how much Scott says otherwise, the safety of his fans is not one of his main concerns… or even a concern at all.
Kylie Jenner has come out in Travis’ defense, saying in a statement: “I know [Travis] cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community, I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show, and in no world would have continued filming or performing.”
No, Travis may not have known people had died… but seeing the chaos that was occurring in the crowd, Travis absolutely had the power to stop the show and make sure everyone was properly taken care of and safe before continuing. He had the power to save his fans but, apparently unless people are actually dead, Travis doesn’t feel the need for much alarm.
