The 'Drag Race' winner also alluded to a video where Scott “spouted genuinely scary anti-LGBTQ trash” during a show in 2015.
Travis Scott found himself in the midst of some controversy ahead of the release of his third studio album, Astroworld, after it became clear NYC nightlife icon and model Amanda Lepore was removed from his album artwork.
On Wednesday (Aug. 1), both Scott and the artwork’s photographer, David LaChapelle, uploaded versions of the cover to their Instagram accounts -- but Lepore was missing on the rapper’s version.
Saturday (Aug. 4), the rapper finally addressed the controversy with a statement on Twitter, stating that “EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ASTROWORLD!” He explained that he was taught to accept everyone and that he has “nothing but respect” for the LGBTQ community. “I want to use my voice to make it clear that everyone on this planet is equal and f--king awesome to the next.”
