Travis Scott is in the middle of a nightmare that he'll probably never be able to forget. But the families of those who have been hurt and lost their lives are living a neverending nightmare, that's for sure. Check out the latest reports about this tragedy.
The Shade Room notes that 'as hundreds of lawsuits, ongoing fatalities and various injuries continue to be at the center of the tragedy that occurred at #TravisScott’s Astroworld festival, an upcoming collaboration he had in the works has officially been put on hold. It was just announced that #Nike has decided to postpone its sneaker collaboration with Travis Scott in the wake of the deadly incident that took place at Astroworld.'
TSR said that '@RevoltTV reports, just a week after the Astroworld festival, that has now claimed the lives of 10 people and injured dozens of others, Nike has finally made a decision that many were speculating would eventually occur. Earlier today, Nike released a statement that it would be postponing its sneaker collaboration with Travis Scott that was initially supposed to drop on December 16th.'
'Out of respect for everyone impacted by the tragic events at the Astroworld Festival, we are postponing the launch of the Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack,' the statement read, which was also released on social media.
Someone said: 'I just bet they did. One thing bout Nike, they gon protect their brand,' and a commenter said: 'Damn I almost forgot about Travis with all Da drama today.'
A follower said: 'Postponed? They gone cancel it next week,' and one other commenter posted this: 'Lord have mercy and its Just Monday! God coming soon tho.'
Someone else said: 'Maybe I’m missing something but im not understanding how this is all falling on him ….what did I miss ???'
A fan said: 'I feel sorry for Travis and the victims, difficult situation all the way around,' and one other follower said: 'They could possibly drop the shoes and use all profits to help the victims.'
The other day, The Shade Room was noting that according to new reports, a 22-year-old college student from Texas A&M reportedly has no brain activity due to the injuries she suffered while attending the Astroworld festival hosted by Travis Scott that claimed the lives of eight people.'
TSR also notes that Travis is facing more than 100 lawsuits.
Travis and Live Nation’s legal issues are proving to be an ongoing nightmare that will likely be very costly.
