Half of Astroworld Victims’ Families Reject Travis Scott’s funeral costs Offer

BoomRadioNG | December 2, 2021
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.
