A Texas grand jury is meeting today to decide if Travis Scott will face criminal charges over the 2021 Astroworld Festival that left 10 people dead.
Travis Scott’s 2021 Astroworld Festival ended with 10 people dead and an enormous grey area on who was at fault. In the aftermath, there have been hundreds of lawsuits but according to Reuters, Travis Scott could now face criminal charges. Reportedly a Texas grand jury is meeting today to decide on criminal charges. Not only are charges being weighed against Travis but also those involved in the planning of the deadly Astroworld festival.
“Nothing Travis did or failed to do fits within the Texas criminal code,”- Attorney Kent Schaffer told Reuters.
Prosecutors will present all their evidence to the grand jurors but that doesn’t necessarily mean criminal charges will become a reality. On Travis Scott’s side, he has begun slowly rolling out his new album Utopia which feels like a litmus test for public sentiment at times.
Yesterday billboards popped up teasing that the album will release sooner rather than later. Over the past few weeks, his peers have been spotted holding a Utopia briefcase that’s handcuffed to their arm. The latest of which has been Bad Bunny which will make for an interesting collaboration.
