Ireland shared several pictures with notes via Instagram Stories on Saturday. She called out those people who were “spreading misinformation” and said that what happened was “not Travis Scott’s fault.”
At the concert, eight people, including underage fans, died after a deadly crowd surge. Many others were also left injured.
“Y’all are really killing these days. You believe everything that you see on Twitter and Tik Tok and completely bandwagon on spreading misinformation,” Ireland wrote.
Bringing Up A Recent Incident
She continued by adding in her dad Alec’s recent on-set shooting incident writing, “First, you were armory/stunt coordination pros when it came to the horrific tragedy involving my dad… and now Travis Scott is demonic because he ALLOWED people to die at his show? I’ll start by saying I am heartbroken for the families who lost a loved one.”
The “Grudge Match” star continued, “Everyone should feel safe when they’re going to enjoy live music. But it’s not Travis Scott’s fault. Any actual musician would validate that you can’t see or hear anyone up there. Especially when wearing in-ear monitors. C’mon people… do a little research before you go spewing cancer culture b–llsh–t. People lost their children at this show you’ve got to say that Travis Scott’s music is demonic and be belongs in prison? Jesus.”
Her Advice To Followers
In a separate share, Ireland suggested a “solid idea” to her followers by telling them to “stick to what we actually know, stop making assumptions, stop spreading misinformation, and educate ourselves on things we know nothing about.”
Meanwhile, in a third post, she clarified that she was not defending the “goosebumps” rapper while also describing her experiences attending his past concerts.
Clearing Things Up
“Ok… I’m done reading sh–t on the internet I think forever. I am in no way defending Travis Scott because honestly, I don’t know him or care personally and the only aspect of this i care about is that people died because this brand new festival neglected to have the proper safety protocols in place,” she noted.
Ireland continued, “I’ve been to two of his shows. I watched people get carried out on stretchers with head injuries and ODs. I’ve experienced this at maybe 10 other shows I’ve been to in my life where other punk bands or rap artists played.”
She added by pointing out that Travis “incites the rage. No doubt about that. But I refuse to fall into this twisted cancel culture b–llsh–t when it’s coming from people who have no idea how it works. I ask a bunch of questions before forming any kind of opinion.”
A few hours later, she deleted the posts, explaining, “people on the internet are so scary and so misinformed.”
