Travis Scott continues to be hit with backlash following the tragedy that occured at the Astroworld Festival over the weekend.
The 30-year-old artist was in the middle of performing at the event on Friday, November 5 when the crowd stormed the stage, leaving hundreds seriously injured and 8 dead.
The “SICKO MODE” rapper has since been at the center of public scrutiny, as many are outraged that he didn’t stop performing once it became clear that there was dangerous chaos going on in the audience.
Now fans are becoming even more fired up after chilling photos posted on Scott's account have resurfaced, where he seems to be celebrating injured concertgoers from events in the past.
One of the disturbing photos features an individual who appeared to have passed out at a concert in 2015. Scott captioned the shot, “To the kid that didn’t survive the rodeo. Ur a hero in [my] book.”
Fans looking back at the photos couldn’t help but notice that the caption “didn’t age well,” considering Friday’s tragedy in Houston, Tex.
One angry commenter suggested that the rapper take down the old photos that seem insensitive, writing: “dude needs to wake up and delete this sh*t,” on Wednesday, November 10.
The same day, hundreds of other Instagram users called for the artist to be “cancelled” for praising the chaos that historically occurs at his concerts.

While the individual in the photo appeared to be temporarily passed out rather than deceased, IG users still called Scott “sick,” for posting the photos in the first place. “Whether this pic was taken 6 years ago or 6 weeks ago don’t change the fact of posting it is wrong…what if that kid really didn’t make it?,” one person wrote.
A similar photo from 2014 featured another concertgoer laying passed out in the grass, which Scott posted to his account and captioned, “WTF.”
On Wednesday, more users flocked to the post to leave comments on the cryptic photo, claiming that Scott was “disgusting,” even before the fatal event occured on Friday.
One user left a comment on the old photo, writing: “This proves he definitely gets off on people taking it to the extreme at his shows. Not good for the lawsuits coming.”
So far, Scott has been slammed with over a dozen lawsuits as a result of the mass casualty that occured at the concert, including one suit from the family of a 10 year old boy who is now in a coma.
It is not yet clear whether or not the “Goosebumps” singer will be found to be at fault for the tragedy, but the Houston Fire Chief claimed on Tuesday, November 9 that Scott “absolutely” should have stopped performing once he realized there was something clearly wrong in the crowd.
