The empathic rapper wants the community to recover from the grief!
Megan Thee Stallion has reportedly cancelled her upcoming concert “out of respect” for the victims of Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival. The concert was scheduled to be held on Friday, December 3, at 713 Music Hall in Houston, Texas.
“Out of respect for the lives lost in Houston earlier this month, I have decided to cancel my show at 713 Music Hall on Dec. 3,” the rapper revealed while talking to the Houston Chronicle. “Houston is still healing, and it’s important that our community be given the appropriate time to grieve. My heart goes out to all the families that are suffering during this difficult time.”
The concert was planned to celebrate the opening of 713 Musical Hall, in Houston which is Megan’s hometown. It was also meant to celebrate the Bachelor’s degree of the rapper in Health Administration, which she will be receiving from Texas Southern University on December 11, 2021.
Following the unfortunate incident at the Astroworld festival, hundreds of litigations have been filed by the attendees of the event. The plaintiffs claim that the event left them with mental trauma and injuries.
Moreover, last week the family of John Hilgert moved to court and filed a new lawsuit. The 14-year-old was one of 10 unlucky people killed during a brutal stampede during Travis Scott’s Astroworld.
Earlier this week, Travis Scott made an offer to bear the funeral expenses for nine-year-old Ezra Blount, the youngest victim of the Astroworld tragedy. However, he was snubbed by the boy’s family in a heartbreaking letter acquired by Rolling Stone. As reported, several other families of victims have also rebuffed Scott’s offer.
The Astroworld tragedy has taken the music industry by storm and there is no certainty who is to blame currently. The world is still grieving the loss of the little boy and Megan Thee Stallion has proven that she stands with the grieving families.
Her act also proves there is still kindness left in the world. The rapper stands firm on her ground and supports the families.
