Fire Chief Faults Travis Scott After 8 People Tragically Lost Their Lives

The Houston fire chief is speaking out about the tragedy that occurred at Travis Scott’s AstroWorld, and believes that the rapper is to blame as he should have “absolutely” ended the show.

“Everybody at that event has a responsibility, starting from the artist on down,” Chief Samuel Pena said on the “Today” show.

As we reported eight people tragically lost their lives amidst the chaos at the concert, and hundreds more were injured. Recently, comedian Lil Duval defended Travis Scott saying it could have happened to anyone.

“The artist has command of that crowd … if he notices something going on, he can certainly pause that performance, turn on the lights and say, ‘Hey, we’re not going to continue until this thing is resolved,’” Pena added.

“There was evidence that the crowd itself was trying to approach some of their private security, security that was closer to that stage,” he continued. “At one point, there was an ambulance that was trying to make its way through the crowd,” he added.

However, the chief says he’s not fully prepared to say that Travis was completely aware of what was going on around him.




“All I’m saying is that everybody at that event, from the artist on down — security and everybody that’s there to provide public safety, including the crowds — we all have a responsibility,” he said.

“We really need to take a critical look at everything that went on there because we cannot have this happen again, here in the city or anywhere,” he added.
