Ireland Baldwin compares Astroworld outrage to 'Rust' shooting

Ireland Baldwin compared the outrage over Travis Scott’s deadly Astroworld show to the reaction her famous father got following his fatal “Rust” shooting.

In an Instagram stories tirade, the 26-year-old model defended Scott, blaming criticism of him on “misinformation” and “twisted cancel culture bulls–t” — before later admitting that he “incites the rage” at his often violent shows.

“First, you were armory/stunt coordination pros when it came to the horrific tragedy involving my dad,” Baldwin wrote dad Alec Baldwin, who last month accidentally shot dead cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his western movie “Rust.”

“And now Travis Scott is demonic because he ALLOWED people to die at his show?” she continued, referring to reports that Scott continued his show despite fans’ desperate pleas to stop amid the crush of people.

“But it’s not Travis Scott’s fault,” Ireland insisted in the rant saved by the Daily Mail before it was deleted.

She said “any musician would validate that you can’t see or hear anyone up there. Especially when wearing in-ear monitors.”

“C’mon people…do a little research before you go spewing cancel culture bulls–t,” she wrote in a caption over an image of an unmade bed.

“People lost their children at this show and you’ve got say is that Travis Scott’s music is demonic and be [sic] belongs in prison? Jesus,” she wrote.

She followed up with another post saying, “Maybe we should stick to what we actually know, stop making assumptions, stop spreading misinformation, and educate ourselves on things we know nothing about.”

Ireland then sent another story soon after — this time describing her own nightmare experiences at one of Scott’s shows.

“I am in no way defending Travis Scott because honestly, I don’t know him or care personally,” she said, contradicting her earlier post.

“I’ve been to two of his shows. I watched people get carried out on stretchers with head injuries and from ODs,” she wrote.

“He incites the rage. No doubt about that,” she added of the embattled rapper. “But I refuse to fall into this twisted cancel culture bulls–t when it’s coming from people who have no idea how anything works.”

Ireland removed all of the stories from her account except for one that explained, “Deleted my posts for one reason – people on the internet are scary and so misinformed.”

“All that matters are the families of those who died in the Astroworld tragedy. My heart breaks for them. The point I was trying to make was stop rage-blaming.

“Make informed opinions and posts. So many people are at fault. Not just one person,” she wrote.

Ireland had herself recently came under fire online, accused of being “tone deaf” for posting pictures of her dressed in a bloody Halloween costume just days after her dad’s fatal on-set shooting.

New Mexico authorities are still investigating the accident and have stressed that criminal charges have not been ruled out.
