Why this petition matters

Started by Renee Myers

Sign this petition of you are in support of an immediate criminal investigation into rappers Travis Scott' and Drake's roll in the gross injury and death of concertgoers at the Astroworld festival.

The concert environment has been described as "hellish, demonic, sinister, chaotic, insane and more."

A popular video has been widely circulated showing Travis continue to perform while a visibly unconscious man is carried across a sea of hands below Travis.

Another video shows a frantic concertgoer beg a cameraman to help her, shouting that people at the show have died, to secure support, to no avail.

The concert continued. Despite screams to stop, pleas for help and ambulances.

Travis and Drake must be investigated to determine criminal liability in this horrific tragedy.

Rappers Travis Scott and Drake have been sued over the incident at the former’s Astroworld Festival on Friday that left eight people dead. 

Texas attorney Thomas J. Henry filed a lawsuit Sunday against Travis Scott, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster, as well as Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham. The suit also names Live Nation and NRG Stadium. 

According to a report from The Daily Mail, the suit is being filed on behalf of concert attendee Kristian Paredes, 23, from Austin, Texas. Paredes reportedly filed the complaint seeking more than $1 million in damages after both rappers allegedly "incited the crowd" and left him injured. 

The causes of the deaths were not immediately known following what has been referred to as a "mass casualty incident."

In a press release announcing the lawsuit, Henry noted that Drake and Scott continued to perform even as vehicles attempted to break through the crowd to help those who had been injured and others called for the show to be stopped. 

"Live musical performances are meant to inspire catharsis, not tragedy," said Henry in a press release. "Many of these concert-goers were looking forward to this event for months, and they deserved a safe environment in which to have fun and enjoy the evening. Instead, their night was one of fear, injury, and death."
