Travis Scott’s interview didn’t heal anyone
Travis Scott reaffirmed his claim of not knowing anybody died until after his performance in a new 50-minute interview with broadcaster Charlamagne Tha God, which was aired on YouTube on Thursday (9 December). He also accused the media of attempting to blame him for the killings.
The Peña family’s attorney responded to the interview by saying that the nearly-hour-long interview was terrible to watch and did not begin to heal them. Travis’ history of instigating audiences to go insane, according to Fisher, must be considered when deciding how culpable he is for what transpired.
A lawyer representing the family of victim Axel Acosta, 21, claimed the rapper’s words were “offensive,” and that he believes the artist is attempting to portray himself as a victim.
Tony also said he believes that Travis’ interview was simply a bid to remove any responsibility from himself, saying in doing so “further exacerbates the pain of those that lost loved ones”.
