Travis Scott’s Team Sends A Message To Astroworld Victim’s Family Over $5M Bugatti Purchase
The family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount, an Astroworld victim, reportedly did not find Travis Scott’s purchase of a $5.5M Bugatti amusing earlier today (June 26). The tiny youngster would still be alive today, claims Bob Hillard, the family’s attorney, if Scott had “spent half of what he paid for the [car] on simple safety measures at the deadly music festival.”
Additionally, Hillard deemed the purchase to be “excessive” and advised that Travis’ entire course of conduct be scrutinized in light of the gravity of the situation.
The artist’s management quickly learned about the accusations made against their client and released a statement. A Scott representative, according to TMZ, described the story as “the latest attempt to exploit Astroworld victims and gaslight the media and the public.” Providing facts, the rep added that the expensive vehicle had been purchased back in 2020.
It was not only purchased long before the disastrous incident that occurred in November 2021, but it was also extensively covered by a number of media sites, including TMZ, which broke the story of the victim’s family today.
Adding to their comments, the representative informed the media outlet, “Misrepresenting a two-year-old car purchase to make an unprovoked and unjustified attack on Travis Scott is nothing more than another desperate publicity stunt to try to falsely blame Travis and intentionally manipulate public opinion, which won’t work.”
