Grandparents to 9-year-old Ezra Blount, who lost his life after attending Astroworld, had a few choice words for Kanye.
Billie Eilish may not have appeased Ye by giving him the apology he so loudly demanded on social media. Still, the rapper did receive a reaction from relatives of an Astroworld victim. After it came to West’s knowledge of a video that showed Eilish pausing her concert to attend to an ailing fan, she also told the crowd she stops her shows for people in trouble. Ye, like many others, inclined that she was taking a swipe at Travis Scott regarding the Astroworld tragedy.
Ye demanded that Eilish apologize before the festival, seemingly suggesting there would be some issue with Coachella if she didn’t. Instead, Eilish responded that she didn’t mention Scott and was only concerned with helping a fan.
As this exchange was going on, relatives of those who lost their lives at Astroworld also came forward, angry with Mr West.
“To hear Kanye’s words, that’s hurtful to us. What an idiotic thing to say,” said Bernon Blount, grandfather to nine-year-old Ezra Blount, who passed away days after the Astroworld Fest. Tericia Blount, Ezra’s grandmother, was outraged at West calling out Eilish.
