Travis Scott Removed from Coachella Roster
Travis Scott was finally removed from the Coachella Music and Arts Festival’s schedule. The famous rapper is facing a new challenge every day after the tragic Astroworld Festival.
The Astroworld Festival, where hundreds of people were injured, traumatized and 10 died, was a nightmare for Travis Scott. There are cases where signatures are collected against him, lawsuits are filed, his products are banned, and his concerts are cancelled. While brands have canceled their collaborations in order not to harm their own image, the tour organizers have abandoned Travis Scott for now as a result of great pressure from the public.
According to the news of Variety, after the tragic events that took place at the Astroworld Festival in November, the famous rapper was requested to be removed from the Coachella staff by making a Change.org petition. The campaign collected approximately 60,000 signatures.
The statement made by the Coachella organizers came right after the petition on the Change.org site.
