The same Travis Scott that had 10 fans die at his bootleg Houston music festival in overcrowded moshpits?! Totally disrespectful to disregard that in his 'love to hype up his fans' as if that didn't KILL. *** #Grammys." This comment underscored the anger and disappointment many felt toward the Grammys' decision to feature the artist.

The controversy deepened when considering the events of the Astroworld concert in 2021, where a crowd surge led to multiple fatalities.
