Travis Scott SPEAKS OUT After Astroworld Festival Tragedy
On Monday, Nov. 8, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alums posted a brief statement to their respective Instagram Stories acknowledging the tragic events that unfolded at Travis Scott‘s music festival.
“Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt as Astroworld,” Kim wrote on her social media profiles. “Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy. We are keeping all of the victims, families and loves impacted in our prayers for healing—as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated.”
Kendall, who attended the concert with pregnant sister Kylie Jenner, said in a separate statement that she is “still at a loss for words” over what took place on Friday, Nov. 5.
“I’m truly broken for the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers go out to everyone involved,” the 26-year-old model said. “Sending everyone who has been affected all of my love and wishing them strength during this incredibly devastating and sensitive time.”
Their statements come two days after dozens of concertgoers were injured and eight people died during the “Sicko Mode” rapper’s performance in Houston on Friday, Nov. 5. Mayor Sylvester Turner and city police described what took place as a “mass casualty incident,” and confirmed an investigation is underway.
The concert took place in Travis’ hometown and was attended by thousands.
