The video shows Travis Scott spitting on fans during one of his concerts that went viral after the Astroworld stampede

Scott performed at the festival in Switzerland in front of the crowd while one spectator took off his shoe. Travis got angry and paused the performing chanting insults and egging the crowd to beat the thief up.

The rapper has been already widely criticized for his onstage behavior at the Astroworld festival when Scott kept performing at the concert while dozens of people were hit in a stampede on November 6.

The video from the Swiss festival seemed to add fuel to the fire.

“Travis Scott can stop a concert because someone tried to steal his shoe but not when literal people are dying and some of yall are defending him?” a netizen wrote on Twitter and shared the video.

On Saturday the rapper said he was “just devastated” by the Houston show.

“Anytime I could make out, you know, anything that’s going on, you know I stop the show and, you know, help them get the help they need,” he said.

Scott also apologized for the accident on his Instagram and claimed that he could not imagine anything like this.

Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival which gathered over 50,000 people ended with a deadly crush in which at least 8 people died and over 300 received injuries.

At one point during the concert the crowd started pushing towards the front stage and as panic grew the situation got even worse as the singer was forced to stop the concert after seeing the people suffering.
