After eight died and hundreds more were injured in a crowd surge at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival on Friday (November 5th), the rapper took to Instagram to post an apology video.
“I just want to send out prayers to the ones that were lost last night. We’re actually working right now to identify the families so we can help assist them through this tough time,” he said.
“My fans really mean the world to me and I always really want to leave them with a positive experience. Any time I can make out anything that’s going on, I stop the show and help them get the help they need. I could just never imagine the severity of the situation,” he continued.
He also said that he has been working closely with everyone to “try and get to the bottom of this” before urging anyone with information to “contact your local authorities”.
On Twitter, Travis Scott’s apology has been considered insincere, with some fans believing the video is ‘forced’, ‘fake’ and ‘lacked emotion’.
Travis Scott apology video memes flood Twitter
Throughout the video, Travis held his head in a bizarre way.
Fans think it was an attempt by him to look more apologetic.
But people think it made him look even more insincere.
Viewers were pretty sceptical about the apology.
Which they thought seemed ‘fake’.
It had these vibes.
And even overtook Logan Paul as worst apology ever.
This was it in a nutshell.
The head holding was pretty strange.
It definitely gave off this energy.

And fans think he added a black and white filter for extra sadness.
Which again, didn’t make him seem any more apologetic.
It was like a DJ Khaled album cover.
The apology certainly didn’t fix anything.
