Astroworld Festival organizers used clips from a disorderly Travis Scott show in 2019, in which three people were wounded, to promote the fatally Houston concert Friday.

Video shared on Astroworld Fest’s Instagram account in May, and first officially announced by TMZ, revealed incoherent fans knocking over a security barrier in their rush to enter the concert.

Three people were rushed to a local hospital with minor leg injuries in the stampede at the Nov. 9, 2019, event, as stated by Fox News.

The end of the publicizing video made fun of the dates for this year’s concert.

Eight people died and more than 300 wounded Friday night in what authorities have called a trampling accident in the first night of the two-day festival.

Scott had as well shared a clip of the mayhem on his Instagram account at the time — publicizing the chaos.

“DA YOUTH DEM CONTROL THE FREQUENCY. EVERYONE HAVE FUN,” he captioned the clip posted in November 2019.

“RAGERS SET TONE WHEN I COME OUT TONIGHT. BE SAFE RAGE HARD. AHHHHHHHHHHH,” he wrote.

On Twitter, the rapper also wrote:

“THANKS TO EVERYBODY THAT PULLED UP TO RAGE !!!!”

Many people who participated in the 2019 Astroworld event explained to Fox News that it had been poorly arranged and had expected the latest show would turn out better.

Yet eight people between the ages of 14 and 27 died.

Scott is right now facing extensive condemnation and attack for the deaths and has been charged with continuing his set, surprisingly as unconscious bodies were pulled from the crowd.

The 30-year-old performer has equally been charged over music festivals in Arkansas in 2017 and in Chicago in 2015 for lashing up hysteria and supporting moshing that left a guard and concertgoers wounded.

In the meantime, the FBI has joined the probe into the fatally concert, as stated by KHOU.
