The consequences of the Astroworld Houston tragedy can be seen on all fronts. After numerous legal proceedings, Travis Scott sees his media collaborations affected . Lately, W Magazine is desperately trying to pull off its cover with Kylie Jenner so it doesn’t show.
An impediment to the distribution of the magazine on Scott
A few days after the Astroworld tragedy, we learned that Travis Scott will no longer appear in the next season of Keeping Up With Kardashian. This dissociation continues through the objective of W Magazine to block the distribution of the cover of Travis Scott and his companion Kylie Jenner in the newsstands.
Clearly, the corporate machines that were once lined up for Scott are quietly trying to distance themselves from the Cactus Jack brand. After copies of the issue of the magazine dedicated to the Webster couple were published, the media went out of their way to prevent its distribution in the country . The move comes a little over a week after the incident at Astroworld Fest that left more than seven dead. This means that the more time passes, the more the singer’s professional situation gets bogged down.
A story that would have been very interesting
Due to the media shift, fans will no longer have the opportunity to read the interesting story of Stormi Webster’s parents . Indeed, this cover involved a long interview with the couple who are expecting their second child together. Although the story was printed before the Astroworld festival tragedy, publishers don’t want to risk running into a slump or harsh criticism.
It would seem that the loss of expenses incurred for the publication could not be compared to the consequences of the publication. W Magazine goes so far as to try to stop the delivery trucks to prevent the distribution of the issue dedicated to Scott’s little family. According to a source from Page Six, the reasons for this retraction from W Magazine would be: “In light of what happened at Astroworld, the interview and the cover lines seem inappropriate, it is the less than one can say ”.
Other Scott partners had already expressed their withdrawal
W Magazine is not the first actor to turn back while a collaboration was underway with the initiator of the Astroworld festival. In the words, Nike would have delayed the release of a collaboration with Scott because of the influx of deadly crowd. For its part, Fortnite would have deleted a Travis Scott emote that had been launched in support of Astroworld.
Despite this negative media tide, Travis Scott enjoys the support of many of his fellow rappers. In addition, he does not lose on all fronts since the sales of his album Astroworld increased after the tragedy of the festival of the same name.
