Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner slammed for taking daughter Stormi, 3, to Astroworld concert


Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner have been slammed online for taking their daughter Stormi to the rapper’s Astroworld festival after the chaotic and explicit concert turn deadly. 

Social media footage showed the reality TV star and billionaire beauty mogul holding her daughter while in the VIP section, alongside her sister Kendall Jenner.

The toddler was wearing noise-cancelling headphones and was waving and smiling in the audience and Kylie had earlier shared a snap of Stormi’s own trailer at the venue.   

But the couple have been branded ‘irresponsible’ for taking their daughter to the event in the first place, given the history of chaos at Scott’s shows. 

One user @redtapeIdiot wrote: ‘Seeing that Travis Scott actually brought his daughter to the concert when he knows that the crowd gets hectic sometimes and he encourages people to “rage” is insane. Stormi probably ended up seeing people pass out or die or get injured bc of her dad. #astroworld’

Another, @zabbpinkless, added: ‘so no one is talking about the fact that Stormi attended astroworld fest, an event where most know what happened. It is so irresponsible of Travis and Kylie to bring a minor to these types of events. she’s just a baby i mean. what’s the need to be involving her?’

A user with the handle @htxmarieee wrote: ‘travis scott and kylie jenner taking stormi to astroworld still doesn’t sit right with me.’ 

The toddler’s name was also trending on Twitter Saturday as alleged death threats were posted (and deleted) and blame was being placed on her 30-year-old father for the eight lives lost.

‘The fact that #KylieJenner and #stormi were there gives off gladiator vibes,’ Twitter user @1776PatriotBtch wrote.

Meanwhile, several fans of Travis (born Jacques Webster) came to the defense of Stormi writing: ‘Not people sending Stormi death threats… are y’all crazy?’

Many were surprised to discover that Stormi not only attended Scott’s Astroworld Festival safely inside the VIP booth at NRG Park in Houston, but she had her very own trailer backstage.

‘There was probably more security taking care of Kylie & Stormi than there was at the entire Astroworld festival,’ Twitter user @alondrakimberly wrote.
