Comedian Katt Williams cited the Astroworld Festival tragedy as the reason he paused his stand-up performance Saturday (Nov. 6) while an audience member received medical attention, TMZ reports.
Williams was performing in Louisville when the individual passed out. Someone yelled, “Stop the show,” prompting the comedian to take a break as medics tried to revive the audience member.
"I'm sorry if I won't move on but that Astroworld s*** I mean we can't never continue till we know somebody motherf***ing good ... I'm not goin' to be leaving with that on my conscience ... just take five minutes ... thank you, sir ... I hope she's just having a baby. That's all," Williams told his audience, according to a video shared with TMZ.
Williams was referencing Travis Scott’s Astroworld music festival on Friday night (Nov. 5) in Houston. At least eight people died and dozens more were injured when a crowd surge toward the stage caused concertgoers to get trampled.
“I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night,” Scott said in a statement on Saturday. “My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.”
In the aftermath, a video circulated on social media that appears to show Scott continuing to perform while the police try to resuscitate a concertgoer. “You can’t tell me Travis Scott didn’t see this kid getting resuscitated while he was up there doing the robot,” the video was captioned.
