Were the Astroworld red flags ignored for money?



Travis Scott, Drake, Apple, and Live Nation slapped with $2 billion Astroworld lawsuit

A major new $2 billion lawsuit has been filed on behalf of 282 plaintiffs in connection to the fatal Astroworld festival on November 5 in Houston Texas, which has claimed the lives of 10 people.

The rise of the Astroworld death toll came after 9-year-old, Ezra Blout was pronounced dead as a result of injuries from being severely trampled on at the festival.

Apple Music’s exclusive online streaming rights of the festival were heavily involved in the crowd crushing crisis.

According to the Rolling Stone, the lawsuit indicates that Apple’s arrangement of the festival was done in a fashion that best served their streaming of the concert at the detriment of the audience’s safety.

The paperwork says that this arrangement essentially formed a cage around concertgoers, with the metal barriers for Apple Music’s cameras, camera stands, and cameramen limiting a means of exit from the crowd.

In a separate $750 million lawsuit filed on behalf of 125 plaintiffs, representative lawyer, Tony Bubzee said in a statement to the Rolling Stone that event organisers ignored the red flags because of the money at stake.

“It’s profits over people. And if the show doesn’t go on, people don’t get paid.”

Headlining artist, Travis Scott, who released a statement on Twitter saying his prayers go out the ones impacted by the festival, was allegedly unaware of the tragedy until coming off stage.
