It looks like Travis Scott is being canceled after his concert caused over 300 people to become injured and 8 who tragically lost their lives. The crowd turned chaotic after attendees tried to reach the front of the stage. Videos from Friday night's show featured many fans screaming for help and even multiple who had passed out. Many are blaming Scott and the production team for not stopping the performance earlier.

"Travis and I are broken and devasted. My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured, or affected in anyway by yesterday's events." Wrote Jenner on her Instagram story. The Kylie Cosmetics owner, who is currently pregnant with her second child, was at the festival with her daughter, Stormi Webster, and older sister, Kendall Jenner.

Jenner continued to support her man adding, "And also for Travis who I know cared deeply for his fans and the Houston community. I want to make it clear we weren't aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing." Kylie has received a lot of backlash herself after she shared a since-deleted video from the Astroworld festival, where an ambulance can be seen in the crowd.

She ended her statement with, "I am sending my deepest condolences to all the families during this difficult time and will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted."

The 'goosebumps' rapper responded to the unfortunate event by posting a video on Instagram. Scott said "I just wanna send out prayers to the ones that were lost last night. We're actually working right now to identify the families so we can help assist them through this tough time." He continued, "You know my fans mean the world to me and I always wanna leave them with a positive experience."
