I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that no one has ever been trampled to death while listening to Enya.

Signing checks may assuage your conscience, Mr. Scott, but it won't bring you absolution. You gotta accept your responsibility in killing eight people to get that.

Travis Scott is a performer.

Live Nation is the company that organizes and runs these festivals.

His conscience isn't bothered.  He's only worried about his bank account.

The stage and everything is still up. Drive by it every weekday. It's really creepy.

Scott had egged people to jump from balconies and those people ended up paralyzed.

He has and since deleted tweets about overrunning security, breaking down gates and crushing the stage.

This is him trying to buy pr.

His lawyer knows no family is going to take it so they can try, let the media respond, then point out how Travis does care he was gonnna pay for your baby to get boxed.

His apology looked like a stoner that had eaten too many edible and was asked to explain particle physics.

Sober the fark up and turn off the filters if you want anyone to take your apologies seriously.

Out of curiosity, what was his exact role in this beyond being a performer? Was he also the show's promoter? Did he oversee security or override the venue's capacity? I'm not trying to sound facetious, and I really haven't researched the tragedy in any depth, but normally things like venue capacity, security, etc. aren't the responsibility of performers. Particularly at festivals where multiple acts are booked. Why is everyone targeting Scott (and some other performers apparently) and not focusing on the promoter and venue?

I know there have been cases where the acts got blamed. The stage collapse at the Indiana state fair comes to mind, but in that case the band overrode the advice of the venue and went on anyway. Did Scott personally do something reckless here?

I had never heard of this clown until this incident. Now that's all I know him for. And I think he's a clown

I think that about most musicians today though.

Insurance companies suck. When I was in my accident, they couldn't do enough for me. Just sign here and we will pay your bills! I didn't sign anything - fortunately. 2 years later, I received a metric fark-ton more than them picking up the tab for my injuries. They are not your friends. You are a number to them, and absolutely nothing more.

If they were contacting victims families and offering to pay for funeral services with a document attached that says something like "...settles all claims past and future..." I would say yeah, that won't look good to a jury in a wrongful death civil suit. And I do not see how their attorneys could argue that that type of action was inadmissible in a civil suit.

He has in the past told people from the stage to just beat down security to get to the front.

He is only mad cause he is having to take responsibility for his bullshiat and it hard to argue you didn't know what was happening when your woman live-streamed an ambulance cutting through the crowd early show.

There seems to be an argument here that the people who took Scott's suggestions seriously are completely innocent. "Hey, he told us to jump off the balcony! What choice did we have?"

Considering his first result under videos when I searched for his name was a music video entitled "Escape Plan" I wouldn't hold my breath.

Too bad the victims didn't have their own escape plan...

Yes, yes (or his people did) and yes. This was his show. He literally was responsible for the whole thing existing. This was I think the third year for this event, and he has gone to court more than once for encouraging dangerous behavior by the attendees. He literally told them to rush the stage, rush the barriers, and ignore the security.

Yeah, Johnnie Cash is one of my favorites, Nelson if fine and old Parton stuff is ok to listen to.

I am talking out the "country" music of recent years were is all pop rock so formulated you cannot tell which artist is performing and the songs have the same farking lyrics, over, and over and over again.

Rolling Stones - Altamont
The Who - Cincinnati 10+
Pearl Jam - 10
Great White - 100 (Holy shiat,I forgot the number was that high)

As far as I know, none of the above bands had made a habit of urging fans to rush the stage.  In fact, quite the opposite.

Offering to pay for funeral costs seems, small.

Mass shooting in Vegas. I forget the performer.

It was country western music, so it doesn't matter, there is no way to tell the apart.

Oh, and auto tune is better?

Didn't say that. FYI, modern country has a bunch of autotune in it as well.


A little autotune is fine if they're taking the edge off, the problem is some performers crank it up so it sounds like they swallowed a robot.

Tom Marvolo Bombadil: baron von doodle: radbaron: baron von doodle: TedCruz'sCrazyDad: baron von doodle: Tyrosine: Serious Black: Signing checks may assuage your conscience, Mr. Scott, but it won't bring you absolution. You gotta accept your responsibility in killing eight people to get that.

Out of curiosity, what was his exact role in this beyond being a performer? Was he also the show's promoter? Did he oversee security or override the venue's capacity? I'm not trying to sound facetious, and I really haven't researched the tragedy in any depth, but normally things like venue capacity, security, etc. aren't the responsibility of performers. Particularly at festivals where multiple acts are booked. Why is everyone targeting Scott (and some other performers apparently) and not focusing on the promoter and venue?

I know there have been cases where the acts got blamed. The stage collapse at the Indiana state fair comes to mind, but in that case the band overrode the advice of the venue and went on anyway. Did Scott personally do something reckless here?

As noted up thread, he regularly eggs on the fans to break through security/ jump off balconies to rush the stage. This isn't something new. This is regular practice on his part.

The yolks on him now isn't it?

My terminology might not be great, but puns are the lowest form of humor.

I think it's and eggcelent pun

Boo

If you find creating puns to be difficult you could always poach them from others.


Okay, that one was pretty good.

It's all Cher's fault. She half-assed the song "Believe" (in life after love) in the studio. The sound engineer then made a #1 pop single out of the recordings with heavy auto tune.
