Tank Defends Travis Scott Over Astroworld, Says Rapper Isn’t to Blame
As the Astroworld tragedy wears off, more celebrities speak out for Travis Scott. The community has attacked the rapper, blaming him for the ten fatalities at Astroworld, and the lawsuits are mounting into the billions.
“The kid is known for mosh pits and rage energy at his shows. If this is not for you then you shouldn’t be there,” wrote Tank. “Anybody underage for sure should second guess attending and being in the crowd. This happens at ALL FESTIVALS!! There’s not enough security and now enough people in the crowd who care about other peoples well being. If the promoter and head of security felt like this concert was out of hand from the beginning they should’ve stopped it before it got started.”
He noted that firms wanted to earn a lot of money and were less worried about festivalgoers’ safety. “As a performer it is my assumption that security and the promoter have done their due diligence in order for us to have a safe and successful show,” Tank added. “Crowd control and security isn’t my job. Entertaining is. If I can clearly see something bad is happening then I will address is but if there are 50k people HOW CAN I SEE THAT?? [face palm emoji].”
Ricky’s Baby Blue jumped in and blasted corporations for avoiding Scott during this period. “Because he was a Black man that owned a festival that had failures?” Blue asked. “When people die at these white owned festivals no one is canceled! We should be empowering him & putting our Black dollars behind him!”
