Travis Scott has been hit with more than 60 lawsuits following the tragedy which took place at his music festival last Friday. The event left nine people dead and hundreds injured in a major trampling incident.
One of the victims in critical condition is a 9-year-old boy who is currently in the hospital in a medically-induced coma. His family has retained the legal assistance of Benjamin Crump to sue the rapper and LiveNation.

After the fallout, the rapper partnered with an organization he said was a free service for those wanting to talk to someone about the traumatic events from that night. However, those on the internet said the partnership was an opportunity for the organization to potentially sell the information of customers to third parties and target them with ads to spend money.
“Hi, I’m Travis Scott and I’m largely responsible for the death of 8 people and trauma of the thousands. That’s why this month I’m partnering with BetterHelp so they can sell your information to a 3rd parties to target you with ads hoping you spend money when you’re depressed.” https://t.co/VDSHOkgytt— Quizás: Phillip (@MajorPhilebrity) November 9, 2021
“Even in the face of tragedy, Scott’s response is another corporate collaboration. It reveals a fundamental flaw in the rapper’s multimillion-dollar brand. No one comes to Travis Scott for a deeply cultivated community... They come for hype.” https://t.co/AwXn8NW1wc— Ivie Ani (@ivieani) November 10, 2021
