Azealia Banks Defends Travis Scott after his concert leaves 9 dead
Azealia Banks Defends Travis Scott after his concert leaves 9 dead. In recent times rap concerts have become so dangerous and some people go just to get rowdy and push and punch people. Is this something that artists are responsible for?
Someone like Travis Scott who has been quoted as far back as 2014 encouraging his fans to “mosh their hearts away”.
On November 5th, 2021 during a Travis Scott concert the crowd started to get rowdy as usual and people were passing out from drugs, dehydration, and people trampling over each other. According to most video evidence and people who attended, the concert was understaffed and poorly managed and at a point, people in the audience were heard begging Travis to stop the show.
The situation is getting worse for Travis Scott as 9 people have been confirmed dead and over 300 have been injured. Fans who were injured during the concert are now hoping to sue both Travis, Drake, and concert organizers for what many are calling negligence and irresponsibility.
Travis Scott has now issued an apology claiming to be unaware of what was going on during the show when they are video evidence and deleted Instagram posts that contradict this claim.
There are now videos of other artists controlling their audience and paying close attention to the safety of their fans as many celebs have come out to speak against Travis Scott and his concert organizers.
However, surprisingly there is one controversial artist who has come out in defense of Travis Scott, who is none other than Azealia Banks. She typed out her thoughts on the situation via her Instagram stories with this to say:
“Why is Travis Scott being sued for the actions of crazy white kinds in a crowd? I don’t get it. It’s not like they were crushed under a piece of faulty equipment. They got trampled by a stampede, by the presumable white kids…
Do people not know that when an artist is performing with inner ears, booming monitors, and lighting that we can barely see/hear hats happening in the crowd?
Callin him a satanic weirdo for “inciting his crowds”
I have NEVER seen this type of language used to refer to the countless cornball rock bands that incite their fans to make mosh puts and wrestle each other during their show.
And had that been a crowd full of black and Hispanic kids they probably wouldn’t have all been acting like privileged fools.
Can we get toxicology reports on these victims before we go blaming this black man? Can we see the camera footage? Because as far as I can see…Travis Scott himself did not trample anyone.”
It is worth noting, however, that Azealia Banks has come for Travis Scott in the past and been at the forefront of controversial opinions and beef with numerous other celebrities.
