Travis Scott’s concert at Astroworld ended in terrible tragedy as 8 concertgoers died; another, a 22-year-old female fan, is now braindead. The Houston Rockets were set to have Travis Scott in and make a big deal about his presence, but that doesn’t seem like the right thing to do now.
The Houston Rockets announced that Travis Scott Day has been postponed until a later date. This comes after Astroworld and so many other stories about Scott’s history of encouraging rage at his shows.
Travis Scott Day was supposed to take place on November 10th as the Rockets took on the Detroit Pistons. Rockets president of business operations, Gretchen Sheirr, explained to the Houston Chronicle that such an event would be a bit tone deaf at this time.
“After what was a horrific tragedy last week, we felt it would have been insensitive and not the right time for us to move forward. Tonight, we’ll honor victims with a moment of silence to help our community heal.”
They postponed the Travis Scott Day celebration, and we’ll have to see how things go when they do honor him in Houston. Scott’s camp claims that they did not know about fatalities until after the show was over. Still, new video has emerged showing Houston police filming Drake and Scott on stage after they were well aware of deaths at the show.
