Social Media Discusses 'Satanic Ritual' Theory
Though the cause behind the fatal accident at the concert is still not clear, a new conspiracy theory has emerged on social media suggesting that it was mass satanic ritual.
There were many social media users who were seen discussing the same. "Something made me think the concert theme for Travis Scott feels eerily like a ritual setup and those people were his sacrifice dude has bad vibes," tweeted a user.
"I heard about the music frequencies and the graphene oxide in the jab. Do you think what happened at Travis Scott's concert was a Satanic ritual? Seem like it could be. It was creepy how he was singing and staring in the same direction as someone going into cardiac arrest," read another tweet.
"People are asking why Travis Scott continued the concert despite seeing audience members in clear distress. The imagery is very disturbing. Reminiscent of a satanic ritual. Could this possibly be a modern day human sacrifice or are people out of line for suggesting?" wrote another.
