Shouty Black man Travis Scott surveys the carnage

A conference of shouty Black men (called "Rappers") has led to 8 people who like listening to shouty Black men being crushed to death by other people who also like listening to shouty Black men.

As reported by the BBC (which tries to take a sympathetic attitude to shouty Blackmen):

Panic broke out after the crowd began to press towards the front of the stage at Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival, emergency officials said. Eleven people were taken to hospitals in cardiac arrest and eight died. Some 300 people were treated for injuries such as cuts and bruises at the event, attended by 50,000 people.

The chief shouty Black man at the conference, Travis Scott, even briefly interrupted his incoherent shouting from time to time as his shouty Black man fans were crushed to death before him:

According to the Houston Chronicle, Travis Scott, who founded the festival, stopped multiple times during his 75-minute performance when he spotted fans in distress near the front of the stage. The rapper asked security to make sure they were okay and help them out of the crowd. Emergency vehicles, lights and alarms flashing, cut through the crowds several times, the paper says. Amateur video from the concert appears to show fans jumping on an emergency vehicle in the crowd as the performance continues on stage.

People will now tweet about how dangerous shouty Black men conferences are, but then realise that at least no one got shot this time and forget about it.

Can you imagine that being your last memory, being crushed to death after listening to some African bellowing into a microphone?

Irony Alert: It's these kinds of people and these kinds of shenanigans that contributed to Astroworld's closure in the first place.
