Hulu Backtracks On Astroworld Documentary, Takes It Down Following Backlash

Travis Scott

Social media users were quick to condemn Hulu for releasing a documentary on the Astroworld tragedy while the investigation remains ongoing.

Hulu has come under fire following the release of a new documentary series covering the tragic events at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival.  

The streaming network released the documentary titled “Astroworld: Concert From Hell” yesterday (Dec. 1). It appears Hulu is backtracking on the decision to put out a documentary while the investigation into the chaotic events of that day is ongoing. The series, which comes so soon after 10 people lost their lives, some of whom are yet to be buried, is unavailable at the time of going to press.  

“Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival was supposed to be the concert of a lifetime,” reads the synopsis on Hulu. “But it turned into a tragic nightmare. A minute-by-minute look at what happened in the crowd, the young victims who were killed, and what happens next.” 

The backlash was swift and users on Twitter immediately began pointing out the obvious.
