Katt Williams did not want to take any chances Saturday night when he noticed that someone passed out in the crowd at his show.
Katt immediately stopped the show according to an exclusive with TMZ.
Someone in the crowd lost consciousness and someone screamed, “Stop the show!” Katt heeded the advice and took a 10-minute break while medics rushed in to tend to the audience member.
Katt stayed on stage at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky, pacing around and talking to the crowd, but he clearly didn’t want to jump right back into his set until medical matters were handled.
You hear Katt tell the audience, “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 conscious … just take five minutes … thank you, sir … I hope she’s just having a baby. That’s all.”
It’s unclear what happened to the man who lost consciousness.
He was taken out of the auditorium and Katt said, “We made the right decision,” adding, “Alright, come back from a commercial break.” He continued on with his set.
Astroworld and Travis Scott are getting slammed for continuing the show for 40 minutes after a stampede that left 8 people dead and hundreds injured.
Authorities are investigating whether someone may have injected fans with some sort of drug that could have triggered cardiac arrest.
Kylie Jenner has since spoken out sharing that Travis had no idea the severity of what was happening at the show.
On Instagram stories, she said Travis only learned of the deaths after the show was stopped.
“Travis and I are broken and devasted,” the reality star wrote via Instagram story.
“My thoughts are prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured, or affected in anyways by yesterday’s events. And also for Travis, who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community.”
“I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing.”
“deepest condolences to all families during this difficult time,” and she “will be praying for the healing of everyone who had been impacted.
Kudos to Katt for stopping his show.
