Many in Texas are still recovering from the Santa Fe High School shooting that took place last week where 10 lives were lost. A remaining four victims are still getting medical care in the hospital, as we speak, ABC reports.
Celebrities all over voiced their frustration and condolences for the attack. However, Houston native Travis Scott decided to take his support for his home state one step further at a recent NBA game. On Thursday (May 24) night, the rapper attended Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals where the Houston Rockets played against the Golden State Warriors. He made sure to honor some of the Santa Fe High School students who were there in the crowd.
First, the NBA team owner Tilman Fertitta said some kind words to the students. Then, he introduced Scott to address the crowd. As soon as the artist took the mic, the audience cheered. Scott is definitely loved by his Texas peers. “To the Santa Fe seniors, to the amazing officers, to the principals, we love you,” the rapper said, as he pointed to people. “Y'all are the strongest people on this Earth. Thank you for being the heroes for all of us.” Take a look at that moment below.
