Travis Scott is doing his level best to push all responsibility for Astroworld casualties onto anyone other than himself — that’s how an attorney for one of the victims views the rapper’s first interview about the tragedy.
Tony Buzbee is representing the family of Axel Acosta … a 21-year-old who died from injuries suffered at the concert. He says he watched the 50-minute sit down with Charlamagne tha God and was offended by what he sees as Travis attempting to paint himself as a victim.
“Axel Acosta and the many others killed or injured are the victims. Travis Scott, his entourage, handlers, promoters, managers, hangers on and everyone else who enable him are the problem. Everything that Travis Scott has done or said since ten people died and hundreds of others were injured at his concert has been lawyer driven and calculated to shift blame from him to someone else.”
Buzbee — who’s already filed a $750 million suit against Travis and others — also isn’t buying the artist’s claim he had no idea of the mayhem fans were going through in the crowd … even if he wasn’t told in his ears. Buzbee says, “He now says he had an earpiece in, and was not told what was going on in the crowd. That raises the question: Did he have an earpiece in his eye? Why did he purposely ignore the death and mayhem occurring literally feet from him?”
Travis has acknowledged seeing at least one emergency vehicle in the audience … and video shows him pointing it out and seeming very puzzled as to why it was there.
Buzbee believes Travis’ interview was just an attempt to dodge responsibility and accountability — and, in doing so, he says Travis “further exacerbates the pain of those that lost loved ones. Axel Acosta’s family doesn’t want to hear Travis Scott’s excuses; excuses do not assuage their grief and pain.”
He says he and Axel’s family “intend to force Travis Scott to accept responsibility for his conduct, in court, in front of a jury.”
