After the lawsuits kept piling, Travis Scott submitted a plea of general denial
In November, the Astroworld festival took place and more than 50,000 people attended it. According to eyewitnesses, Travis Scott appeared on the stage and hyped the crowd to start riots. After this, a stampede began which killed 10 people and injured 300. Since then, the victims have been filing lawsuits against him and blaming him for the tragedy. However, Travis Scott has denied the responsibility and submitted a plea of general denial in front of the judge. At the same time, he requested the judge to dismiss the lawsuits. According to reports, he is planning to do that with all the lawsuits. So far, he has been sued for more than $2 billion.
Last week, he gave his first ever interview and addressed the incident
In an interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Travis Scott talked about the Astroworld festival tragedy for the first time. According to him:
“I didn’t know the exact details until minutes before the press conference [after my set]. And even at that moment you’re like, ‘Wait, what? People pass out, things happen at concerts, but something like that… It’s so crazy because I’m that artist too — anytime you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show. You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. Anytime I could see anything like that, I did. I stopped it a couple times to just make sure everybody was OK. And I really just go off the fans’ energy as a collective — call and response. I just didn’t hear that.”
Despite his explanation, people are still angry with Travis Scott and do not believe him.
