According to Travis Scott, Astroworld Festival was supposed to be the concert of a lifetime, but it turned into a tragic nightmare. 

Looking at what happened in the crowd and the young victims killed, what happens next remains uncertain. 

Reporting on this tragedy, Hulu even had a special feature titled “Astroworld: Concert From Hell,” which chronicled the fatal event and its tragic aftermath. And dropped on Wednesday (December 1). 

Leaking of the news special by Hulu sparked reactions from social media users who expressed their displeasure with the content 

Releasing of the content was also planned amid an ongoing investigation into the fatal incident. 

According to multiple sources, the documentary Astroworld: Concert From Hell  contained interviews and press conferences featuring victims’ families originally aired on ABC. 

Following the airing of the piece, Hulu posted the news on its platform with other ABC specials, 

Condemning the inconsideration by Hulu and ABC, a Twitter User @DaKidGowie called ABC and the streaming platform out for attempting to profit off of the tragedy. 

Condemning the news piece, another user @ David Gowie: noted that filming a series about Astroworld amid tragedy is wildly insensitive, 

Lamenting, he tweeted, both ABC and HULU are making cash regardless of mourning families, traumatized victims 

Landing page and synopsis of Astroworld are still up for subscribers to see despite being pulled down by Hulu. 

Occurring last month in Travis Scott’s hometown of Houston, Texas, the Astroworld Festival ended tragically 

Involving many casualties caused many to be trampled amid a sudden rush, with hundreds also injured; ten individuals passed away as a result. 

Commenting on Twitter another user, @LilAioli said that “burials are still ongoing, the legal cases have not even begun, but documentaries about the tragedy have already been completed.
