At least eight people were killed and dozens injured at rapper Travis Scott's concert last week at the Texas Astroworld festival.

Scott ended his show around 20 minutes ahead of advertised time, which left many wondering why he refused to end it sooner and appeared to incite the crowd and cause a riot.

Video footage from what is one of the deadliest concerts in history shows just how chaotic the situation got quickly. But this is nothing new for Scott, whose concerts have a history of rowdiness.

2015 Incident

With the Texas Astroworld festival tragedy in the news, a video clip of Scott's 2015 concert at Openair Frauenfeld in Switzerland has gone viral on various social media platforms, including Twitter.

As reported by The New York Post, the video -- which can be viewed below -- shows Scott telling a crowd to physically assault one of the concert goers.

As the clip shows, the controversial musician leaped into the crowd, and singled out one individual in the audience, telling others to "f*ck" that person up.

The video shows Travis accusing a fan of trying to "take my shoe."

"Come here, b*tch," the rapper shouts at the fan, before telling other members of the audience to go after them.

"Get that motherf*cker, get him" Scott says.

F*ck him up!” Scott shouts in the clip, which also appears to show several people striking the fan.

"F*ck his ass up!" Scott shouts again in the clip, repeatedly insulting the fan, as he walks to a security guard. At the end of the clip, Scott throws the microphone and puts his shoe back on.

Social Media Reactions

Social media users were quick to point out that Scott has a history of highly problematic behavior at concerts.

"He literally stopped a whole ass concert because someone took a SHOE. He can stop a concert when people are being STOMPED and SUFFOCATED to DEATH," one social media user wrote.

"Stop blindly following celebrities, they don’t care about you," they added.

"That man literally dived into the crowd for a dirty shoe and told the crowd to f–k a boy up for having the shoe. Like y’all don’t see the issue????" another person added.

In response to the Astroworld tragedy, Scott released a lengthy statement via Instagram.

According to People, Scott said "my fans really mean the world to me, and I always want to leave them with a positive experience."

"Any time I can make out anything that's going on, I'd stop the show and help them get the help they need, you know? I could never imagine this situation," the rapper continued, noting that he is "working right now to identify the families to assist them through this tough time."
