Travis Scott fans are undoubtedly seething right now, having been pepper sprayed following the postponement of his Oklahoma concert.

The last year has undoubtedly been a pretty huge one for Travis Scott. After releasing his third album, ASTROWORLD, in August, the 26-year-old soon found himself topping charts all over the world.

Since then, he’s not only curated the NBA 2K19 soundtrack, but he’s also given away $100k to his fans, and seen ‘SICKO MODE’ hit #3 on the triple j Hottest 100.

However, just one day after Scott missed out winning any of the three Grammy awards he was nominated for, his fans have found themselves in a pretty bad situation.

As the Tulsa World reports, Travis Scott’s Monday night performance at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma was cancelled at the last minute, sending fans into a fury.

Just after 6pm, the BOK Center revealed that the show had been cancelled, with Travis Scott confirming the news on Twitter at 7:30pm.

“Tulsa so sorry I can’t perform at tonight’s sold-out show,” Scott wrote. “We had last-minute production issues and I can’t give y’all an incomplete show.”

While the performance has been rescheduled for March 26th, Pitchfork notes that an impromptu riot broke out, with police responding to a frustrated crowd by pepper spraying them.

In footage uploaded to social media, angry fans can be seen near the front of the venue’s doors, demanding to be let in. One video shows the venue’s front door being broken by a projectile, while others show venue staff attempting to keep fans from entering.

Understandably, fans have taken to places such as Reddit to vent their frustration, while also questioning the reason behind the cancellation.

While some have pushed the rumour that Travis Scott never actually made it to Oklahoma following a hefty Grammys celebration, others have pointed at allegations made against Sheck Wes, Scott’s Cactus Jack Records labelmate and support act for the Tulsa gig.

As sources such as SPIN have reported, singer Justine Skye published a Tweet earlier today which named Sheck Wes as her alleged abuser. While further details have not been made clear, fans are indeed believing there may be a link between the two incidents.
