Cardi B speaks out on the unfair treatment of female rappers

Travis Scott has reportedly been removed from the list of artists to play at Coachella 2022 in the face of the Astroworld tragedy that unfolded last month.

Ten people were killed while Scott played at Astroworld. Given that Scott has encouraged reckless behavior at his concerts in the past, a petition was launched by in the days following the tragedy that resulted in his removal from Coachella. The petition has now collected 60,000 signatures.

KESQ News 3 reported that the City of Indio (where the concert is taking place) and the festival's Community Services Manager Jim Curtis have confirmed that the rapper has been removed from the event for the next year.

The petition's description reads: “Given the recent tragic and unnecessary death at Travis Scott's Astroworld concert, due to Scott's own gross negligence and simple lack of compassion for human life, we ask AEG, Paul Tollet and Goldenvoice to cast him remove at all of their festivals. "

Earlier this week, Scott gave his first public interview since the tragic event with Charlamagne tha God. The families of those who died at the event were apparently shocked by Scott's decision to conduct an interview after the unfathomable loss of loved ones, believing Scott's interview did more harm than good.

"Axel Acosta and the many other people killed or injured are the victims," ​​he said.

“Travis Scott, his entourage, handlers, promoters, managers, followers, and anyone else who empowers him is the problem. Everything Travis Scott has done or said since ten people died and hundreds of others were injured at his concert has been lawyer-led and designed to shift the guilt from him to someone else. "

During the 51-minute interview, Travis said to Charlamagne tha God, "I've experienced different kinds of emotions, an emotional roller coaster ride, I mean."

“It's going to be so difficult because I always feel connected to my fans. I've been through something and I feel like the fans went through something and people's parents went through something. And it really hurts. It harms the community, it harms the city. There were a lot of thoughts, a lot of feelings, a lot of sadness and I just tried to wrap my head around it. "
