And will probably lose his Playstation partnership too.

They pulled those Travis Scott ads they did last year off YouTube. They're no longer embedded on the blog

ID: hjvcqe5

TBH they should never have aired to begin with. They basically lifted the Maxell ad campaigns wholesale with zero attribution.

ID: hjwuldm

I noticed that too. Was done pretty silently. I can't find any of the Travis Scott playstation promo videos anymore except the one on IGN's channel.

He's got a whole set in the game though including another emote though. Why remove one thing if you're not gonna remove the rest?

ID: hjvdlh5

some sections of the item shop are pre-planned, which made this emote to be on yesterday's shop so when they noticed they pulled it. his actual set (skin etc) hasn't returned since his concert ended and now seems like it never will

ID: hjvjw9t

Yeah I misunderstood. I thought the emote was being taken from people's accounts, not just banned from the item shop.

ID: hjvac59

well, because the set (including his skin & stuff) costed money and people payed for it. so they can’t just remove the skin from peoples accounts.

Is it the emote with him holding up the mic stand?

ID: hjwd0cj

if you mean the one on fire, no

ID: hjwhztn

How about the head shaking one?

ID: hjx3r7h

It was a shitty semi-sexual TikTok emote named Out West

I love how people are defending this guy. An arguement i saw was "hes young hes allowed to make mistakes". Really is mindnumbing

ID: hjvrasd

Some mistakes you can understandably make while young:

Drinking a little too much and waking up hungover as fuck Bending over to pick things up instead of kneeling/squatting down Becoming friends with selfish people Not thinking about money needed for your car or other necessities Eating poorly just because you can Pulling all-nighters for video games or other entertainment Never bothering to learn how to fix things yourself

Getting people killed is not one of them.

ID: hjwzwz7

Other notable shitty things he's done:

encourage a kid to jump off a balcony then got security to drag him on stage which prologed his back injury further (kid is now paralyzed) when Travis was crowd surfing in a concert, a guy stole his shoe. Travis proceeded to chant to the crowd to "fuck him up".

Guy's got a history of shitty behavior at concerts.

Only if you’re rich it is a mistake

ID: hjwvvup

Some mistakes you can understandably make while young and famous:

Speeding down freeways at 200mph in a hypercar while drunk and totaling the car in an accident

Beating girlfriend to a pulp

Catching STDs from underaged hookers

Snorting cocaine on an airplane

Stabbing a producer

Possessing an unregistered firearm and participating in a gang shootout

ID: hjxggtj

I can't remember the last time I stayed up past 12 playing videogames. Oh fuck, this is it isn't it, I'm nearly dead...

ID: hjvn21n

They're saying he's young?? He's 30!

ID: hjvrqe3

Yeah fr he a grow ass man with a wife and kid. Boy I really pray for the kid

ID: hjwi2yq

They just think he's young because his target audience is 13

ID: hjvh30t

Yeah don't be mean, didn't you cause the deaths of 8 people and seriously injure 100s of others when you were young?

ID: hjvitir

No but I told Denver Joe Flacco was a good idea.

ID: hjworhk

I only caused 7 deaths when I was a kid so hes still a loser.

ID: hjvkj88

It's not even his first concert injuries, surely if you've injured people before you tone it down and don't flip off the ambulances trying to attend the scene.

ID: hjvow27

Lol if you haven’t learned how to be a decent human being by 30… chances are you’ve missed the window.

RIP to those who lost their lives. It’s a terrible situation for all.

There will always be a dumbass defending another dumbass

This guy will only care after the fact, when it hurts his pocketbook. So don't expect anything until a little later

ID: hjvq4tt

Facts. the only place that had fort knox level security at the fest was the merch booth.

Good. Fuck him.

The thing is Travis Scott has ALWAYS been a scumbag. A ruthless, sociopathic, selfish piece of shit with no regard for anyone but himself. Look no further than the stories of him having fans beaten, or when his manager had a seizure (requiring hospitalization) and Scott (the only one with him) just abandoned him when it happened.

He's always been a piece of shit and you didn't have to look hard or far to know why. But McDonalds, Playstation, Fortnite...they were all happy to sign him to their children's brands. Which is why he even has 10-14 year olds at his concert.

Epic, McDonalds, Sony...they only find their humanity when it's PR spin.

ID: hjvd2zv

Sadly that's evey company these days. 90% of these companies could honestly not care less for months like pride or black history month unless it affected their image and profits

I just saw the actual footage/report and it made me so sad. I don't think his name should be on anything except his.. music (I officially feel like Hank Hill)

ID: hjwlgsx

That boi ain't right!

referring to Travis Scott

ID: hjw52vz

I’m sure hank would understand such harsh feelings after what took place on sacred Texas soil

Oh no... anyways

11 : Anonymous2021/11/09 06:43 ID: hjwpl5l

Yes that's what's important to focus on: Fortnite emotes.

12 : Anonymous2021/11/09 02:49 ID: hjvzk7j

It wasn’t removed from the game, it happened to be in the item shop the night after so they pulled it. It most likely will never return

13 : Anonymous2021/11/09 14:59 ID: hjxx3ap

We did it boys, concert riots are no more.

14 : Anonymous2021/11/09 00:06 ID: hjvdzt1

Good. I have a hard time when a bandwagon jumps on people getting shamed for sharing their personal opinions but this cat sat there with folks begging for help and didn’t care. I don’t have any sympathy there.

Beyond me how people like him become superstars.. those kinda people who only care for their performance and money paid afterwards, nothing else, no one else.

ID: hjvn0hw

Being a good person has never really been a requirement to become a superstar

ID: hjvjyvy

How do you think they got to that point?

ID: hjvqqk3

Wait until he learns about CEOs

ID: hjvx441

that’s exactly how most people get there lol, obviously not to this degree all the time. but probably worse in many cases
