Travis Scott repeatedly bragged about hurt, unconscious concertgoers

Years before eight died at his Astroworld festival, Travis Scott would brag on social media about fans getting hurt and passing out at his shows — even suggesting one would be a “hero” if he “didn’t survive” a New York gig.

The 30-year-old “Sicko Mode” star — under fire for playing on at Friday’s Houston festival as eight died and hundreds were injured — still has disturbing images on his social media celebrating previous scares.

One of the most disturbing posts shows a young man seemingly unconscious at Scott’s sold-out 2015 show at Manhattan’s Webster Hall.

“TO THE KID THAT DIDNT SURVIVE THE RODEO. UR A HERO IN MU BOOK,” Scott captioned the photo that is still on his page.

The image was posted the day after his show with Young Thug at the East Village venue. Just before it, he also posted a video of the crowd reacting to him playing his song “Quintana in NYC.”

“BEFORE A KID PASS OUT,” he wrote, seemingly celebrating the same fan.

He also posted another image of someone seemingly out cold at a 2014 show with the simple caption, “WTF.”

Among photos of his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, and their daughter, Stormi, Scott also posted other images glorifying fans’ injuries, noted TMZ, which compiled many of the posts.

“SHE BROKE HER HAND AND SHE DOESN’T GIVE A F***!!!” he wrote in one, while another bragged, “IT’S NOT A SHOW UNTIL SOMEONE PASS OUT.”

The still-online posts horrified many fans of Scott, who had insisted he always tries to help fans when he spoke of his ????

“There’s no way you posted this in real life,” one follower wrote, while another stressed, “Dam these post not looking good years later.”

“Damn wtf he really did post this s–t 😨,” another fan replied to one of the injury pics, while others said the rapper was “bout to be big bankrupt” with a flurry of lawsuits already filed.

“This is f—ing disgusting you are so f—ing negligent,” another fan wrote of one of the images of a passed-out man.

The rapper has also gone viral for footage from an old show where he seemed to spit at a fan he accused of trying to steal his show — then repeatedly encouraged others in the crowd to “f–k him up.”

The tragedy also renewed focus on his violent concert history, including another Manhattan show, in 2017, in which Kyle Green says he fell off a balcony, leaving him paralyzed.

After Friday’s deadly Houston gig, Scott insisted that he “could just never imagine the severity of the situation.”

“Anytime I could make out, you know, anything that’s going on, you know I stop the show and, you know, help them get the help they need,” he claimed on his Instagram story.

Houston’s fire chief insisted Tuesday that the star “absolutely” should have stopped his show, however, suggesting there were clear warnings that it had turned tragic.
