It looks like it’s not only the victims of Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival tragedy who will benefit financially from the chaos that led to the death of ten concertgoers because Hulu already has a documentary series on the tragedy titled “Astroworld: Concert from Hell.”
Hulu is capitalizing on the tragedy to rake in some millions of dollars. Via ABC13:
“Astroworld: Concert from Hell” takes you inside the festival. What really happened – from chaos at the gates hours before the music started, to what went wrong in the crowd as the night went on, and the ten victims who never made it home. Plus what happens next in the growing investigation.
In other Astroworld festival tragedy news, half of the victims’ families have rejected Travis Scott’s offer to pay for their funerals.
Now, the word is coming down HULU has changed their mind.
Hulu on Wednesday released a new documentary special — “Astroworld: Concert From Hell,” which recaps the deadly events at a Travis Scott festival in Houston last month — but quickly pulled it from the service after a social-media backlash.
The special was produced by KTRK, ABC’s owned-and-operated local affiliate in Houston. The 50-minute documentary can be viewed at this link.
A rep for Hulu said “Astroworld: Concert From Hell” was removed from the service because it was not properly branded — the way it was presented and promoted made it look like the feature was a Hulu original, which it isn’t.
In a widely circulated tweet about the special, one commenter — who assumed the “Concert From Hell” program was produced by Hulu — said, “Hulu making a documentary about Astroworld is in poor taste all around. People are still burying their loved ones. The legal cases haven’t even started. Great documentaries are done when all the facts are laid out. Not enough time has passed to fully discuss this.”
You can still watch it, just not on Hulu.
