Fortnite Cancels Travis Scott Emote Following Astroworld Tragedy
Travis Scott‘s Out West emote is not currently available in Fortnite after the festival catastrophe.
The music emote, which included an audio snippet of Scott’s track Out West, was deleted from the game’s item shop following his Houston festival that left eight people dead and hundreds injured.
Emotes are dance moves or actions that characters can perform in the online game.
It also appears that the company has disabled the shop’s Daily section.

Scott held a virtual Fortnite concert in April 2020 – with over twelve million gamers and fans tuning in – and created a digital avatar in the game.
He has since released a statement on social media and pledged to refund festival attendees. You can read more about this here.
