Travis Scott Sued By Fan Injured At His New York City Show
A fan was critically injured during on of Travis Scott’s shows.
On April 30, 23 year old Kyle Green attended a Travis Scott concert at New York City’s Terminal 5. Most of Scott’s shows are crazy and wild, and that night was no different. During his set, the “Butterfly Effect” rapper encouraged his fans to jump off the third floor balcony into the crowd, guaranteeing them that they would be caught.
Unfortunately for Green, he was pushed off of the balcony and landed on the floor – sustaining multiple injuries. Green says after he fell, Scott told his security guards to pick him up.
“Before I knew it, I was surrounded by security guards, who scooped me up…Travis Scott was yelling at his security guards to bring me to the stage. They didn’t put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around.”
Scott then took off his ring and gave it to Green as a peace offering, who painfully laid on the floor until an ambulance arrived.
Green injuries have left him with a fractured back, fractured right ankle, and a broken left wrist. After many surgeries, Green was left paralyzed on his left side, and confined to a wheelchair. He alleges that he suffered these serious injuries as a result of Scott encouraging concertgoers to leap into the crowd.
Scott has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
