Travis Scott’s Offer to Pay for the Youngest Astroworld Victim’s Funeral Was Rejected
 

 
The family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount has rejected Travis Scott’s offer to cover his funeral costs, per Rolling Stone. Blount was the youngest victim of the tragedy at Astroworld, which left 10 dead and hundreds injured. He had been sitting on his dad’s shoulders during the November 5 music festival in Houston. After the pair were separated during the deadly crowd surge, Blount was later found at a hospital, where he spent several days in a medically induced coma and ultimately died on November 14. Scott reportedly volunteered to pay for funeral expenses on November 24, the day after Blount was buried. Scott’s lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli, wrote that the artist was “devastated” and “committed to doing his part to help the families who have suffered,” adding that accepting the offer would not impact a lawsuit filed against Scott and others by Ezra’s dad, Treston Blount.

“Your client’s offer is declined,” Blount family attorney Bob Hilliard responded in a November 29 letter obtained by Rolling Stone. “I have no doubt Mr. Scott feels remorse. His journey ahead will be painful. He must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for this tragedy.” Hilliard also told Rolling Stone that Scott’s team had previously reached out about potentially meeting in person. “We were pretty firm. With all due respect, no,” he said. “This isn’t a photo-op story here. This is a ‘who’s responsible and why’ type of investigation. And [Scott’s] on the short list.” In the letter, Hilliard noted that “perhaps one day, once time allows some healing for the victims and acceptance of responsibility by Mr. Scott and others, Treston and Mr. Scott might meet, as there is also healing in that.”

Which is why he offered to pay for the funeral, guess that wasn't good enough. Can't be victimized if your accepting money from your supposed boogeyman

Someone explain how Travis is on the hook for the crowds actions. Did y’all see them hoodlums crashing thru the entrance where the detectors were. Also on the back of the tickets that they have at the disclaimer stating they’re not liable and you a*sume the risk by going to this event

Dad probably was just one of those dads that just go to work and don’t really be in touch like that

Travis Scott little friendly Cartoon Network lookin a*s does concerts in fortnight

And every little kid that can hold an iPad plays that game


It’s not like Travis Scott energy, music and concert are known to be like lil Boosie, zro, sauce walka, or mo3

Then you could be like “well why tf he bring his kid to a lil boosie concert”

But it’s Travis Scott the friendly lookin nickalodean static shock lookin mofo that do concerts on fortnight

Dad probably came home after a long a*s shift and seen his son playing fortnight and his kid probably ask him to take him to that little kid a*s concert


I never heard no grown a*s man say “say I’m going to the Travis Scott concert“

It always be the little a*s hypebeast a*s kids and the fortnight kids that go to his concerts

This mofo know his demographic he needa stop playing

He needs to get a new legal team because that's basically admitting that he was at fault.

Hopefully Kylie gives him a loan to pay off all of the upcoming lawsuits

Imagine being so deep into your delusions of living vicariously though celebrities that you show no empathy for the family of a nine year old who was trampled at a concert.

Y’all sick in the head

Like dude said travis promos to the fortnight crowd concert could’ve been a bday gift for the kid or some sh*t who knows kid was prob happy as hell when he found out he was going

That being said I’d never take a nine year old to a large concert let alone festival

Scott holds some responsibility imo cause I think he had to have known how much mayhem was out there and he chose to keep rockin cause he’s a “rager”
