Half of Astroworld Victims’ Families Reject Travis Scott’s funeral costs Offer
Travis Scott’s offer to pay the funeral costs of Astroworld victims has been rejected by half of the bereaved families.
This includes the family of nine-year-old Ezra Blount – the youngest of 10 concertgoers killed during a crush at the rapper’s festival in Texas.
Scott made the offer last week, amid multiple lawsuits over the tragedy.
A lawyer for the family of 14-year-old John Hilgert called the gesture “demeaning and inappropriate”.
He told Rolling Stone; “Of all the things this case is about, that’s the least of any concern,”
“This family is set on making change, and ensuring this never happens at a concert again.”
The crowd surge occurred during Scott’s headline set on Friday, 5 November. At the time, there were about 50,000 people attending the festival at Houston’s NRG Park complex.
Ten of the victims have now died. The eldest was 27.
