Travis Scott Shutting down a concert for a boisterous crowd is counterproductive – ‘because the family of an Astroworld victim think it shows him picking and choosing when he puts fan safety first.
Alex Hilliarda lawyer representing Ezra BlountFamily, tells TMZ… Scott’s actions 4th of July Coney Island Show Do not prove that the rapper is compassionate and ready to maintain order. If anything, it depicts the exact opposite…at least according to the attorney.
Hillard says, “He knows exactly how to keep his fans safe during the concert, but the problem with that is that he just didn’t learn the fact that he’s in control of the entire crowd.”
His impression is that Travis knew he had this power all along, including in Astroworld, but he simply refused to wield it to settle things. Travis has denied it.
Hillard continues – “There are 10 people still alive today, including young Ezra Blount, if Travis realizes his responsibility as an artist goes beyond simply trying to stir up crowds, and reasserts the ‘if you see something say something’ rule.”
In the immediate aftermath of Coney Island’s performance, a representative of Travis came and said… “Travis is committed to doing his part to ensure that events are as safe as possible so that fans can have fun,” adding that he encouraged fans to listen to safety so that everyone is safe and enjoying themselves.
He might leave TS feeling damned if he did, damned if he didn’t – but Hillard just doesn’t buy Trav’s merciful version of events.
He replied rather harshly… He tells us, “The problem Mr. Scott has is his problem that when we call him to the podium to swear and question him, the judge will not allow his paid spokesperson to sit on the witness’s chair and answer questions for him.”
You know… Travis is still attached to it Several lawsuits which accused him of being responsible for the deaths at Astroworld Fest. All of this litigation is still making its way through the courts, and he hasn’t yet been dropped from any of those lawsuits… though after asking.
