A horrible tragedy took place during Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival.
On November 5, approximately 50,000 fans attended his festival. During the show, there was a riot, fans rushed the stage, resulting in eight people dying (ages ranging approximately 14-27) and 300 people injured.
As reported on CNN, one concertgoer, TK Tellez, described the festival as a “fight for survival” because it was so packed. Tellez said, “We were all screaming for help, and no one helped or heard us. It was horrifying. People were screaming for their lives, and they couldn’t get out. Nobody could move a muscle.” Other people said the experience was “traumatizing” as they saw lifeless bodies and people passing out.

Some online critics weren’t feeling Travis’ apology video. Some say the apology was “fake.” Take a look at screenshots captured by the Say Cheese blog:
