Fortnite, the extremely popular battle royale game, has removed an emote related to a certain rapper after his music festival led to the deaths of 8 people. This likely won't be the extent of it.
The megastar rapper Travis Scott recently held his annual music festival, Astroworld, in Houston's NRG Park for around 50,000 fans.
The event, officially labelled as a "mass casualty", has led to a tidal wave of repercussions - including in the video game he is most prominent in.
Travis Scott and Fortnite have quite the history, as both pioneered video game concerts.
Fortnite is extremely popular not just for its gameplay, but for incorporating real-life people into the game.
