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 $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.”
