Travis Scott’s Astroworld Staff Were Allegedly Instructed To Call Dead Concertgoers ‘Smurfs’

Astroworld Staff Were Allegedly Instructed To Call Dead Concertgoers ‘Smurfs’

Fresh details about the Astroworld Festival tragedy have been shared as CNN obtained a 56-page security and emergency medical response plan drafted by the event planner. In the plan was a section that detailed how employees should react if an attendee died or was having any sort of medical issues.

It instructs the personnel at NRG Park in Houston to never use the terms “dead” or “deceased” over the radio.

Instead, Scoremore, the Austin-based promoter, had security notify “Event Control of suspected deceased victim utilizing the code” Smurf. The document made it clear they were not to use the term “dead” or “deceased.”

According to Yahoo News, Brent Taylor, a representative for the Houston mayor’s office, said he believed the use of the word smurf in the document was “operational.” Meanwhile, a source close to Scott told Insider: “Travis’ team is not involved in any venue security or emergency planning. The plan was created by a separate group entirely.”

As we previously reported, 8 people died and over 300 were left injured after being trampled on at the festival. A nine year-old-boy who is said to be the youngest victim is currently fighting for his life.




Travis now faces multiple lawsuits, including two from injured attendees who want $1 million each in damages.
