Kanye West defends Travis Scott
Kanye West recently took to his official Instagram handle and shared a screenshot of a news headline stating how Billie Eilish took a dig at Travis Scott at her concert when she stopped her show to give her fan an inhaler. While doing so, she said, “I wait for the people to be okay before I keep going”, which lead Kanye West to suspect that she was referring to Travis Scott’s Astroworld tragedy where numerous people died during the concert. In the caption, he urged Billie Eilish to apologise to Travis Scott and to all the families of the people who lost their lives and insisted that no one intended it to happen. Adding to it, he also mentioned how Travis had no idea of what was happening when he was on stage and was hurt by what happened. In the end, he revealed that Scott will be performing with her at Coachella and now he wanted Billie to apologise to him before they performed.
The caption read, “COME ON BILLIE WE LOVE YOU PLEASE APOLOGIZE TO TRAV AND TO THE FAMILIES OF THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES NO ONE INTENDED THIS TO HAPPEN TRAV DIDN’T HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING WHEN HE WAS ON STAGE AND WAS VERY HURT BY WHAT HAPPENED AND YES TRAV WILL BE WITH ME AT COACHELLA BUT NOW I NEED BILLIE TO APOLOGIZE BEFORE I PERFORM”
