W Magazine is reportedly trying to replace an upcoming issue that features Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner as its cover stars.

The magazine is trying to pull the issue in the wake of the Astroworld Festival Tragedy, where the death toll has now risen to 10.

The cover, which featured an interview with the couple, was printed before November 5th, when Astroworld took place. Because it has not yet been shipped, W is reportedly trying to recall the issues before they hit stores.

A source told Page Six: “W editors have cleared any planned coverage of Travis and Kylie from their website, but the magazine was already printed, and now they are trying to stop the delivery trucks.”

Nike also announced on Monday that they had decided to postpone their Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack collaboration.

“Out of respect for everyone impacted by the tragic events at the Astroworld Festival, we are postponing the launch of the Air Max 1 x Cactus Jack,” Nike said in a statement posted on on their website.

A $750 million lawsuit was filed on behalf of 125 victims on Tuesday, including the family of 21-year-old Axel Acosta who recently succumbed to his injuries. Houston attorney Tony Buzbee alleges that Acosta went into cardiac arrest after being trampled in the crowd.

“When Axel collapsed, he was trampled by those fighting to prevent themselves from being crushed,” the lawsuit states. “As he lay there under a mass of humanity, dying, the music played and streamed on—for almost forty minutes.”

Buzbee’s law firm plans to file another lawsuit with “another 100 named plaintiffs.”

Indy100 reached out to W Magazine for comment. A spokesperson for W Magazine stated: “The issue was photographed and printed prior to the tragic events in Houston. W will not be posting the cover.”
