Travis Scott is being sued by a fan who was left paralyzed after a fall from the balcony at Terminal 5.
Scott’s April 30 show at Terminal 5 was getting a little out of hand and he encouraged fans to jump off the balcony into the crowd below.
One of these fans is the plaintiff in the lawsuit, Kyle Green, a 23-year-old who is now paralyzed on the left side from the fall.
Travis Scott can be seen urging Green to jump in cell phone footage of the incident.

“I see you, but are you gon’ do it,” Scott says. “They gon’ catch you; don’t be scared!”
The lawsuit claims Scott, “incited mayhem and chaos through his conduct.”
As for Green, he remembers the fall and the chaos that ensued, instead of giving him proper medical help, security dragged him around and brought him on stage,
“I fell and hit the floor. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by security guards, who scooped me up…Travis Scott was yelling at his security guards to bring me to the stage. They didn’t put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around.”
Travis Scott put out a statement at the time claiming that safety is always a priority,
“The safety of everyone is held in the highest regard and we are currently conducting an internal investigation to ensure that this does not happen again. We are deeply concerned about the guest who was injured and intend to offer him our support.”
This is fucking brutal for Green, but I’m not sure if Scott is liable in this case.
Travis Scott shows are known for getting wild. He was arrested for inciting a riot at a show in Arkansas in May (a month after the Terminal 5 incident).
Folks, we fully support going off at all live shows, but stay safe and never jump from elevated surfaces onto a sea of people that will most likely not catch you.
