Travis Scott speaks after 8 deaths at his concert
Rapper Travis Scott is facing a lot of public counterreaction after 8 people failed and numerous further suckers were injured at his AstroWorld Festival held in Houston over the weekend.
According to reports by News 24, a vended-out followership of about 50 000 people rushed to the stage, crushing those who fell unconscious or suffered other medical issues in their path. The crowd was supposedly encouraged by Scott, who called on followership members to ignore security and come to the front of the stage.

“ There were just too numerous people,” said Al Barrak, who described chaos as he tried to buy jubilee gear. “ People were over on each other. We were each pressed together. You felt like you could n’t breathe,” he says.
