Prominent International Rapper, Travis has apologized following the death of atleast eight people during his Astroworld show.

 

In a video widely circulating on social media, Travis Scott vowed to help the families of the victims who died at the Astroworld festival, while insisting he ‘could never imagine the severity’ of the situation while performing.

 

The Sicko Mode rapper performed to around 50,000 fans at the music event in Houston, Texas on Friday when the crowd surged towards the stage causing a crush, which led to the deaths of eight people and many others injured.

 

Following his original statement, Travis, 29, spoke out in videos shared to his Instagram stories on Saturday night acknowledging those who lost their lives.

‘To the ones that was lost last night, we’re working right now to ID the families so we can help assist them through this tough time.

‘I’m (going to) do everything I can to keep you guys updated, just keep you guys informed on what’s going on.

However, Some concertgoers have criticized organizers for continuing the show even as unresponsive people were being given CPR and carried away, but Scott indicated he was not aware of how severe things had gotten.

“Any time I could make out, you know, anything that’s going on, you know, I just stopped my show and, you know, helped them get the help they need.”

 

Video from the concert’s live stream showed Scott pausing his performance and looking on in confusion as an ambulance pulled into the crowd before finishing the concert.
