Scott’s shows have always been chaotic and risky for concertgoers, The New York Times reported. He is currently being sued by a fan who was paralyzed after being pushed off a balcony and dragged onto the stage in 2017. Scott also referred to the recklessness charge after prompting Lollapalooza members to climb over the barricades.
Despite footage Scott temporarily suspended his show when he noticed that a fan had passed out and the concert did not stop until at least 30 minutes after emergency services announced a “mass casualty” incident. Scott’s partner, Kylie Jenner, said the rapper was “not aware of any accidents” until the end of the concert.
Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said part of the blame for not being able to take responsibility for the situation rests with Scott.
“The only person who can really call and get a tactical break when something goes wrong is this performer,” Peña told the Times.… “They have this hooligan pulpit and they are responsible.”
