Travis Scott's Cacti was temporarily discontinued during the Astroworld Festival tragedy
Travis Scott's Astroworld Festival in Houston last year ended in total tragedy with around a dozen losing their lives. While overwhelming number of lawsuits were being filed against the rapper, a number of his business ventures were also adversely affected, including his alcoholic brand Cacti.
The ‘'Highest In The Room'' rapper shared a photo of a Cacti billboard on his Instagram stories Monday (June 6), giving a simple message of hope with the caption, ‘'patience.''
“After careful evaluation, we have decided to stop all production and brand development of Cacti Agave Spiked Seltzer,” brewing company Anheuser-Busch said about the discontinuation in a statement. “We believe brand fans will understand and respect this decision.”
A close source to Scott assured TMZ that the halting of Cacti production was not permanent. “Travis was clear in his interview that he is not focused on business right now and his priority is helping his community and fans heal,'' the source said before pointing out that Scott took part in that decision. “Cacti asked AB InBev to inform their wholesalers there will not be product at this time.”
