Roddy Ricch and others spoke out Saturday about the Houston music festival where a mass crowd surge killed eight concertgoers and injured at least 25. Scott, who previously tweeted that he was “devastated” by the Friday tragedy and pledged his “total support” to law enforcement investigating the incident, reflected further on Saturday via Instagram: “I want to send out prayers to the ones that were lost last night. We’re actually working right now to identify their families, so we can help assist them through this tough time. My fans really mean the world to me, and I always want to leave them with a positive experience. And any time I could make out anything that was going on, I’d stop the show and help them get the help they need. I could never imagine the severity of the situation.”

During the Houston concert, Scott spotted an emergency vehicle in the audience and said, “There’s an ambulance in the crowd. Whoa, whoa, whoa,” before telling fans, “Y’all know what you came to do” and resuming his set. At one point, the star briefly paused the show and said, “Hold, hold, hold, we need some help, somebody passed out right here. … Security, let’s get in there.” But the performance continued.

Concertgoers got trapped in the crush of the crowd and struggled to breathe, and several people were trampled on the festival floor.
