Astroworld: Nine-year-old victim Ezra Blount’s family rejects Travis Scott’s offer to pay for funeral

The Independent says The family of Ezra Blount, the youngest Astroworld victim, has rejected rapper Travis Scott’s offer to pay for the nine-year-old’s funeral.

Responding to Scott’s letter expressing remorse over Ezra’s death and an offer to cover the boy’s funeral expenses, the Blount family lawyer Bob Hilliard wrote: “Your client’s offer is declined. I have no doubt Mr Scott feels remorse. His journey ahead will be painful. He must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for this tragedy.”

On 5 November, a massive crowd surge during Scott’s performance at the Houston-based Astroworld festival left 10 people dead, and many more injured. More than 50,000 people had gathered at the site of the former Houston Six Flags park, catching event organisers off-guard, and leaving emergency medical responders overwhelmed.
