Kanye Threatens to Boycott Coachella Until Billie Eilish Apologizes to Travis Scott

In a single Instagram submit, Kanye West concurrently confirmed that Travis Scott could be becoming a member of him throughout his headlining set at Coachella and threatened to drop out of the pageant until Billie Eilish apologizes to Scott.

West took challenge with a perceived slight by Eilish at Scott. Throughout a current live performance in Atlanta, Eilish paused her efficiency to retrieve an inhaler for an viewers member in want. “We’re taking good care of our folks, maintain on,” Eilish informed the group.

Whereas Eilish made no point out of Scott by title, some followers and media retailers have been fast to match her response to how Scott reacted to the tragedy at Astroworld — which left 10 folks lifeless. West made the identical connection.

“COME ON BILLIE WE LOVE YOU PLEASE APOLOGIZE TO TRAV AND TO THE FAMILIES OF THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES,” wrote West in an all-caps Instagram submit on Tuesday. “NO ONE INTENDED THIS TO HAPPEN TRAV DIDN’T HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING WHEN HE WAS ON STAGE AND WAS VERY HURT BY WHAT HAPPENED AND YES TRAV WILL BE WITH ME AT COACHELLA BUT NOW I NEED BILLIE TO APOLOGIZE BEFORE I PERFORM.”

There’s lots to unpack right here. To begin, West confirmed his intention to convey out Scott at Coachella, who himself was beforehand booked to headline the pageant earlier than the tragedy at Astroworld. After Scott was dropped by Coachella, organizers booked Eilish in his place.

Now, West is threatening to cancel his personal headlining look at Coachella until Eilish apologizes for exhibiting human decency to somebody in want. Eilish is under no circumstances the primary artist to cease a present attributable to a medical emergency, and there are a number of documented situations of her doing so lengthy earlier than Astroworld.

It’s price noting that West makes loads of threats that he doesn’t really observe by way of with (see: stopping the discharge of Netflix’s new documentary and beating up Pete Davidson, for instance). So, Coachella in all probability needn’t sweat it.
