After the horrific tragedy that took place at Astroworld over the weekend, Travis Scott has announced that he will cover the costs of the funerals of those festival-goers that passed away at the event. Eight people lost their lives and hundreds were injured at the show. Over the weekend, Scott showed his remorse about the incidents and expressed his deepest condolences.
A petition on Change.org is calling for the removal of Travis Scott from the Coachella Festival lineup. Scott is scheduled to headline both Saturday’s of the event, which is scheduled for April 2022. The petition states the removal is requested “due to Scott’s own gross negligence and sheer lack of compassion for human life”. So far, the petition has over 5,500 signatures.
