Travis Scott’s concert at the Astroworld Festival was met with terrible tragedy. After a riot took place, eight people lost their lives, including a 14-year-old boy. This senseless violence was also said to be a targeted attack. Now Scott is speaking out on the matter.

The rapper took to Instagram on Saturday morning to address the violence at his concert. His heart goes out to all those affected and he is “absolutely devastated” by what took place.

I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night. My prayers go out to the families all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival

Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life. I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support. Love You All

This is a terrible situation and more information could uncover the root of this issue. It is alleged that concertgoers were injected with a drug that caused the mayhem to ensue. We’re not sure about all the logistics, but now is a time for healing as so many questions remain unanswered.

Let’s get to know each other. Me? Well, I have a master’s degree in Journalism from Marshall University, but I don’t really like to talk about that. I was a stand-up comedian for eight years, but I don’t really like to talk about that either. I write a lot. I once worked for a company that writes blurbs for online gambling games. Those paid $.75 each. So, if you frequent that kind of thing, then you’re welcome for the description for Biker Chicken Slots or Crazy Granny’s Scratchers. I wish I had more to tell, but due to my crippling anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome, that has become increasingly worse over the years, I tend to keep to myself.
