Kanye West took to Instagram yesterday to scold Billie Eilish for recent comments she made about keeping fans safe at her concerts.
While Billie Eilish didn't mention Travis Scott (founder of Astroworld Festival, which was struck by tragedy last December when ten concertgoers died of compression asphyxia during Scott's concert), Kanye West believed she made comments targeted at him.
Lats weekend, Eilish paused a concert in Atlanta upon seeing a fan in need in the crowd.
She instructed the audience to give her space and arranged for the fan to get an inhaler.
"Guys, give it some time," she told the audience. "Don’t crowd…We’re taking care of our people, hold on. I wait for people to be ok until I keep going."
Kanye West shared a screenshot from hip-hop account @RapSeaTV that alleged: "Billie Eilish dissed Travis Scott at her concert after she stopped the show to give her fan an inhaler! 'I wait for the people to be okay before I keep going.'"
Eilish had never mentioned Travis, but Kanye wrote, sharing the screengrab on Instagram: "COME ON BILLIE WE LOVE YOU PLEASE APOLOGIZE TO TRAV AND TO THE FAMILIES OF THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES NO ONE INTENDED THIS TO HAPPEN
"TRAV DIDN’T HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING WHEN HE WAS ON STAGE AND WAS VERY HURT BY WHAT HAPPENED AND YES TRAV WILL BE WITH ME AT COACHELLA BUT NOW I NEED BILLIE TO APOLOGIZE BEFORE I PERFORM"
A couple of hours later, Billie Eilish responded in the comments: "Literally never said a thing about Travis. Was just helping a fan."
Both Eilish and West are scheduled to headline with Coachella festival in April. Scott was also originally one of the headliners but was removed from the festival following the Astroworld tragedy.
