A Travis Scott show is probably the closest you can get to emulating the experience of, say, catching a Circle Jerks show in the '80s. You mosh. You slosh. You just generally fuck shit up. Sadly, in 2017, that experience occasionally results in very not-punk legal action.
As reported Monday, Scott's particularly moshy NYC show earlier this year landed the AstroWorld artist a lawsuit. Balcony-falling attendee Kyle Green is suing Scott and the venue, Terminal 5, claiming he was pushed and that his serious injuries are due to Scott's alleged leap encouragement. "[The security guards] didn't put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything," Green said, according to the New York Post. "They just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around. Then they dropped me in front of the stage."
But according to TMZ, the dude's own mother disagrees. TMZ noted that Scott never specifically encouraged Green to leap from the third floor of the venue. In the suit, however, Green blames Scott for creating an atmosphere of "mayhem and chaos." To be fair, mayhem and chaos are prerequisites for any show worth attending.
Green's mother even sent an email to Scott's team, praising him for his "kindness and encouragement" following the incident and claiming that no legal action would be taken. "I would never punish someone who was trying to help my son," she said. Scott also reportedly FaceTimed with Green and sent his manager to visit him in the hospital.
The status of the suit in light of TMZ's latest report is unknown.
