AceShowbiz - Katt Williams won't let the Astroworld tragedy happen again. After learning one of his fans passed out during his show at the KFC Yum! Center, the comedian put his performance on hold and cited the fatal incident at Travis Scott (II)'s annual festival.
The 50-year-old comic was performing in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday night, November 6. According to TMZ, someone in the crowd suddenly screamed, "Stop the show!" after one person lost consciousness. He then halted his set for 10 minutes as medical workers helped the individual.
"I'm sorry if I won't move on, but that s**t that happened at - that Astroworld s**t - I mean, we can never continue til' we know somebody is motherf**king good," the funnyman told the audience. "I'm not goin' to be leaving with that on my conscious."
Fans later applauded Katt for his decision. The "School Dance" actor then told the crowd, "I may be selfish, but if I fall out of my chair, ain't nobody better not tell another joke til' I get on the f**king stretcher and s**t, b***h."
"Don't let me hear people laughing as I'm getting wheeled out. Come back from commercial break, everything's gonna be OK," he further noted. "Thank you to the people that's over there, especially the lady that told me not to keep going because it was dark over there. Thank you so much, I appreciate that."
Katt was referencing Travis' Astroworld music festival on Friday night, which took place at NRG Park in Houston, Texas. Eight concertgoers died at the 50,000-person show while hundred others were injured.
The victims ranged in age from 14 to 27. They were 14-year-old John Hilgert, a freshman at Memorial High School in Houston, 16-year-old Brianna Rodriguez, a junior at Heights High School in Houston, 21-year-old Franco Patino, a student at the University of Dayton from Naperville, Illinois, 23-year-old Rudy Pena and 27-year-old Danish Baig.
