Interestingly, it is one lone woman who has decided to picket outside of the rapper’s home. To start, she is holding a sign that says “Travis Scott Lives Here,” and making it clear she is protesting his involvement in the nine deaths associated with the ‘Astroworld’ Festival.
The other sign is a direct shot at the rapper, saying, “You Destroyed Lives. You Deserve Bankruptcy.” The woman included the names of the organizations and others involved in putting on the concert. “Travis Scott, Live Nation, NRG Park, and Apple Music. Plus, the sign made reference to Drake’s appearance at the concert, and Scott’s nickname, “Cactus Jack.”
Protestors Picketing Outside Of Travis Scott’s Home
A reporter covering the tragedy — Brian Entin — snapped a photo of the woman in front of the house and said he believes the rapper wasn’t home at the time.
The woman spoke to the media after cameras showed up to interview her about protesting Scott, but didn’t want to give out her name. “It was multiple levels of failure, by the event organizers, the performers, officials,” the woman said.
She continued, “Local city ordinances and permits were clearly overlooked, security protocols were clearly not implemented when this was declared a mass casualty incident. That’s why I’m here.”
Travis Scott’s security surrounds the property and was standing just feet away during the protest, which drew cars and fans who stopped and honked. But, the woman was determined to get her point across and made sure the new cameras got what images of her protest.
Protestor: I Think These Parties Should Go Bankrupt
“I think these parties should go bankrupt,” she said, pointing to the names on her sign. Adding, “I haven’t seen an apology from any of the parties involved, and I understand they’re probably tight-lipped for legal purposes, but this was a mass loss of life for a concert. And it was completely preventable.”
As we reported, Travis Scott is getting major heat for not stopping the concert earlier to try and stop the onslaught of fans pushing towards the front of the stage. Several videos have surfaced allegedly showing Scott acknowledging that there is a problem in the crowd, but continuing to perform.
The rapper’s spokesperson denies the allegation and points out that Travis is not responsible for shutting down a concert — something that is in the hands of the show’s producer. Plus, the rapper claims he was unaware of the seriousness of the situation, as it was happening.
Travis Scott Facing Several Lawsuits Over ‘Astroworld’ Festival
Many victims of the tragic incident, and their families, have filed lawsuits against the rapper and the venue — claiming they should be held responsible for the deaths and injuries to fans. Of course, there is insurance in place for this type of situation, but not enough to cover the massive amount of claims.
The investigation into the deaths is ongoing.
