Travis Scott is facing backlash online for 'rejecting' a girl from coming up on stage with him at a concert.

On Sunday (29 October) Scott took to the stage in Las Vegas, Nevada, as part of his Utopia-Circus Maximus Tour.

During Scott's performance, an audience member appears to be invited up on stage with the rapper, however, a video circulating online seemingly shows the first person getting turned away. Prepare for an extremely awkward moment:

A video posted to TikTok by Ryan Breedlove - @ryanbreedslove - shows a girl being escorted towards the rapper, only for Scott to hold a finger up and the girl be escorted back down again.

The video then cuts to another girl being taken up onto the stage, and climbing up a ladder to join Scott on the platform he's performing on.

The crowd can be heard shouting in the background and the text reads: "First chick got rejected by Travis Scott!!"

The caption adds: "The real walk of shame @Travis Scott #TravisScott #lasvegas #screammovie #VozDosCriadores."

TikTokers have flooded to the comments of the post, many outraged with the 'SICKO MODE' rapper - some drawing on what happened at Astroworld.

One user said: "Bro this man barely apologized for Astro world what do y’all expect."

Another commented: "Wow that’s a fan. He should be thankful smh."

Meanwhile, a third argued: "Travis had to make the responsible choice he may have felt it was unsafe."

A Redditer named u/laylaaruby also re-shared the video to r/popculturechat branding Scott: 'so foul'.

If you've been living under a rock for the last two years, the Astroworld comments refer back to the 50,000-capacity music festival Scott held in Houston in 2021.

A fatal crowd rush occurred on the first night of the event which saw 10 people die, 25 others hospitalised and over 300 injured.

A Texas grand jury decided Scott would not face any charges over the incident and the rapper later donated $5 million to community initiatives.

The rapper - who shares two children with Kylie Jenner - said in a statement on Instagram at the time: "Over the past few months I’ve been taking the time and space to grieve, reflect and do my part to heal my community. Most importantly, I want to use my resources and platform moving forward towards actionable change. This will be a lifelong journey for me and my family.

"While it’s easy for corporations and institutions to stay in the shadows, I feel as a leader in my community, I need to step up in times of need. My team and I created Project HEAL to take much needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever."

UNILAD has contacted Travis Scott's representatives for comment.
