Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival disaster has been heavily documented since it’s occurrence back in November. The media and fans alike all wanted Scott to take accountability, and assume responsibility for his negligence, which cost 10 concertgoers their life and landed hundreds in the hospital.
Following the incident Travis Scott has been paying the piper, facing well-deserved lawsuits and public condemnation. As time goes on, the raging rap star continues to be hit with more consequences for his inaction during his Astroworld Festival.
The newest upshots stemming from the Astroworld tragedy for Scott is him having his beverage pulled from the Anheuser-Busch’s roster as of Friday. Cacti, a line of hard seltzers created by Travis Scott back in March, will be discontinued by the beer company—possibly because of what happened at Astroworld.
“After careful evaluation, we have decided to stop all production and brand development of CACTI Agave Spiked Seltzer. We believe brand fans will understand and respect this decision,” AB said in a statement.
Although TMZ claims that Scott’s and Anheuser-Busch’s separation was mutual, it would have been in Scott’s best interest to continue their partnership since his seltzers sold like crazy. Who would willing end a lucrative business arrangement unless they had too? This sounds more like AB wanted out because they didn’t want their brand to be associated with tragedy, and Scott didn’t want to look like he was being eighty-sixed. Again.
Just as Scott was eighty-sixed from the Anheuser-Busch lineup, the 30-year-old rapper is also reportedly eighty-sixed from the upcoming Coachella Music Festival. Reports from the city of Indio and Community Services Manager Jim Curtis claim that Scott will no longer be performing at Coachella, according to KESQ News.
This is directly tied to the Astroworld disaster in Houston.
“Back in November, News Channel 3 reported on an onlinepetition calling on Coachella organizers Goldenvoice and Paul Tollett to remove the rapper from music festivals after his concert in Houston,” according to KESQ News.
Although it has been reported Scott won’t be performing at Coachella, and many prefer he wouldn’t, a spokesperson from Indio said the city can’t confirm if he will or won’t.
Director of Communications and Marketing Brooke Beare told The Desert Sun that “any confirmation about the festival lineup would come from Goldenvoice.”
