Rapper Travis Scott apologises for calling fans ‘faggots’ and ‘queers’ at gig

Joseph McCormick September 8, 2015

Rap star Travis Scott has apologised after calling fans “faggots” and “a bunch of queers” during a concert earlier this year.

The rapper was the subject of controversy after he used the language to refer to a group of people at a gig in Houston, Texas in March.

Footage of the incident, at the House of Blues, emerged, and caused a social media backlash.

Scott tweeted a number of messages after the video began circulating.

He put down the slurs to being overly “excited”.



Later, he wrote: “We all aint perfect”.
