Drake Breaks Silence on Astroworld Festival Tragedy

The Angels:
Rapper Drake has made his first public statement since the deaths of eight people at rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival on November 5.

Drake wrote on social media that I have been trying to get out of the shock of this devastating tragedy for the past few days. My heart goes out to the families and friends who lost their lives and to those who are suffering.

As reported by Variety.com, Drake Travis Scott appeared as a surprise guest during the headlining set.

Drake was heavily criticized for the massive casualties on Friday night.

Emergency medical personnel attending the event reportedly learned of several cases of cardiac arrest.

The concert drew 50,000 people to Houston’s NRG Park, where performers included SZA, Lil Baby and Roddy Rich, but the show deviated from protocol after being billed as a two-stage event.

Scott’s joke, however, stirred the ire of everyone present. It instigated the active crowd to the point where people became uncontrollable and the event turned into a huge incident.

The ages of those who died at Astroworld were between 14 and 27 years old. A 10-year-old boy has been hospitalized in Houston after sustaining fatal injuries from being trampled.

The boy is in a coma and his family has contacted attorney Ben Crump for the case.
