During a recent concert a fan during Billie Eilish’s performance passes out and needed an inhaler, Billie of course stopped the show and made sure the fan got the proper medical attention they needed.
At that time Billie announced “I wait for people to be okay before I keep going” and now Kanye West posted to Instagram a lengthy rant to Billie about the comment.
West wrote in all capitals, “Come on Billie we love you please apologize to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives no one intended this to happen,” West wrote. “Trav didn’t have any idea of what was happening when he was on stage and was very hurt by what happened.
Billie, 20, replied, “Literally never said a thing about Travis.”
Billie’s initial response at her show is something that has been very common for artists, after the Astroworld travesty where many people died and even more people got injured, videos are artists surfaced where they stopped shows after noticing fans who were injured or needed help. Artists like Billie, Adele, Niall Horan and many many more.
The response Billie made at her own concert may have been in response to the Astroworld concert in Houston, but it was probably out of pure frustration for those poor people who died.
Kanye later went on and said Travis will be performing with him at Coachella, where Billie is also headlining, and he said he won’t perform unless Billie apologizes. At this point, Travis is not the one who needs an apology, Travis owes the apology, and if Kanye doesn’t want to perform that’s his choice.
Billie Eilish is 20 and does not need a 44-year-old man taking to Instagram to call her out for something she did not imply, Kanye should right now not be associated with Travis and Coachella should reevaluate their decision to have Kanye headline the festival.
