Kanye West recently took to Instagram to demand that Billie Eilish apologize for her recent comments regarding Travis Scott and the Astroworld tragedy. The Donda rapper started out by penning ‘come on Billie we love you’ and adding that no one intended for the tragedy to happen and that ‘Trav didn’t have any idea of what was happening when he was on stage.’
The musician then issued a request, saying, “I need Billie to apologize before I perform.” Kanye West shared a snippet and wrote in the caption, “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,” he continued.
Kanye Ye West concluded her caption while saying, “And yes Trav will be with me at Coachella but now I need Billie to apologize before I perform.” However, it’s unclear whether Scott will be performing with the rapper on stage. Eilish replaced Scott on the Coachella bill after the tragic events at Astroworld. Meanwhile, the singer commented back saying, “literally never said a thing about Travis. was just helping a fan.”
Kanye also went off on a fan who commented, “Man’s off the meds album gonna go crazy.” The rapper posted a screenshot of the comment on his Instagram with the caption, “The world is racist s**ist homophobic and crazy phobic at our core it’s cheap and dismissive to say I’m off my meds anytime I speak up.” The rapper went on to say, “Phobia in this sense doesn’t mean being afraid of it means not giving the power to let’s be more conscious and not write each other off so easily.”
Kanye’s statement comes after Eilish recently stopped her show to give an inhaler to a fan who couldn’t breathe, and made a comment that many took to be a dig at Scott. After noticing a distressed fan, Eilish stopped her show and directed medical staff to administer aid to the fan and subsequently asked the other attendees to step back and let the individual in question regain their composure.
