Travis Scott has made several attempts to make up for what happened after experiencing the Astroworld tragedy. These initiatives continue with new ones.
Travis started the HEAL Project initiative. However, the victims’ families remain unconvinced of Travis Scott’s intentions. A victim’s grandparents think this work is a PR effort.
Ezra Blount’s grandmother, Tericia Blount, in an interview with Rolling Stone, said she views Travis Scott’s Project HEAL as a “PR show,” allhiphop reports. It is believed to be the rapper’s attempt to win favors over potential jury goods. Tericia Blount also said that Travis Scott was trying to impress the judges before they even met.
“He’s trying to make himself look good, but it doesn’t look that way to someone with our eyes. What we’re seeing is that he’s done wrong, and now he’s trying to be the good guy and trying to give his own given on safety.”
Ezra Blount’s grandfather Bernon Blount added, “Every time he does something like this, it’s an ongoing reminder.”
Travis launched Project HEAL on Wednesday, March 9. After experiencing the Astroworld tragedy, he offered to pay for the funerals of the families of the deceased. It had pledged to provide academic fellowships, mental health resources, technology-driven solutions for event safety, and more.
Is Travis Scott Pursuing PR?
“While it’s easy for corporations and institutions to stay in the shadows, I feel as a leader in my community, I need to step up in times of need,” he wrote on Instagram. “My team and I created Project HEAL to take much-needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever.”
Ezra Blount, mentioned in this article, was one of 10 victims who died of his injuries at the 2021 Astroworld Festival in November. Rest in peace.
