Online Petition To Ban Travis Scott From Performing In Texas Gaining Popularity
The investigation continues into the tragic events that unfolded at the Astroworld Music Festival in Houston on Friday, November 5th.
What started out as a night of entertainment for thousands of Travis Scott fans, quickly turned into a horrific chaotic life-threatening scene at Houston's NRG Park during a two-day music festival being headlined by Travis Scott. Shortly after Scott took the main stage a little after 9 p.m., the crowd of more than 50,000 began surging towards the stage.
The surge caused mass chaos among concertgoers as people were being pinned against each other while others were losing their balance ending up on the floor and fighting for their lives as they were being stepped on and not able to breathe. Quite a bit of time elapsed before the show was eventually halted. As a result of the incident, ten people ended up losing their lives, the youngest being a nine-year-old boy from Tyler, while hundreds more sustained other injuries.
There is now an online petition seeking at least 7500 signatures requesting Texas Governor Gregg Abbott to ban Travis Scott from ever performing in Texas again. At the time of this published article, it had received 5200 signatures. The petition claims that Scott and his production company 'created a culture within his shows that is unacceptable and should not be allowed to perform in Texas.' A number of lawsuits have also been filed against Travis Scott, the festival promoters and others associated with the event.
