TRAVIS Scott’s Astroworld has been compared to “hell’s gate” because “the music of Satan has led the crowd to the dark side,” an exorcist claims.
Ten people were killed after a crowd of about 50,000 people swarmed forward while rapper Travis Scott was performing.
After the incident, the videos on social media loudly declaring what had happened were indeed on a large scale “satanic blood sacrifice.”
And now – Father Michael Maginot has opened up about “signs” he noticed at the concert that “lead him to believe there was a satanic role.”
Speaking to Fox News’ Wayne Watters on Monday night, the famous Catholic priest and exorcist said: “The entrance to the concert seems to be the singer’s mouth and people have to go through it.
“And certainly for a demon, the mouth is the main body part it wants to take over because it can communicate and talk.”
Maginot states that when people go through the mouth “there seems to be a pull to go to the other side or to the stage that seems like the gates of Hell.
“And so people were motivated to push forward.”
He also explains that the “devil” likes to “create a mob mentality” – which he likens to flash mobs and demonstrations.
“It reduces moral responsibility and so if everyone did it, it would strip us of personal responsibility for what is happening,” Maginot said.
“And they love that because they can create a lot of havoc without people questioning it.”
The priest then declares the stage to be like “hell’s gate” because it sounds like “you’re going down to Dante’s hell, the different stages of hell.”
He claims people are “driven to push forward” and that the music is “dark” and “leads to the dark side of things.”
Watters understood the priest was saying that the vibrations of the music and the beat of the drums had “led the crowd into a demonic place.”
Maginot said it seems artists like Scott “have to do more outrageous things” to “get money and fame”.
OTHER BIZARRE REQUIREMENTS
Meanwhile, other social media users have strangely suggested that the crowd was mesmerized by a moment of demonic spells before crush.
Those who clearly believe in the baseless claims have seized upon some far-fetched “evidence” to support their myths, including the obvious demonic symbolism in the stage design. and promotional materials for the event.
One of TikTok’s most popular videos on the subject, which has racked up a staggering 23 million views, shows a hologram of a winged bat-like creature at the top of the show, surrounded by fire.
Captioned, “Less than 40 seconds in,” the video’s commentary is filled with conspiracy theories about satanic presence and perceived paranormal symbolism.
“Look at the iconography!! ONE LOVE, the symbol of the human soul, FIRE ?!?! They know what they’re doing. This is pure evil,” one of the top commenters read.
The second clip shows a photo of the stage, highlighting eight pillars of fire.
“For those who say this is not satan. 8 pillars of fire and 8 dead,” the caption read.
PERFECT STORM FOR THEORYERS
A few days ago, Jennifer Stromer-Galley, a professor of social media studies at Syracuse University, described the tragedy for The Sun as: The perfect storm for conspiracy theorists.
She said Travis Scott’s celebrity status, energetic performances, and tendency to “go into rage”, combined with the hellish image present on stage, made it “unbelievable”. No wonder you’ll see some of these stories emerge.”
While some TikTokers may indulge in theories and share them simply to enhance their “micro-celebrity status”, in an online universe where it is often difficult to distinguish between genuine and insincere, Stromer-Galley warns that “one person’s game can quickly become another person’s passion or real worldview.”
“I think it’s a challenge with any misinformation because I really think some of the people or creators of what we call disinformation are just doing it because they’re trying to increase clicks,” she said.
“There are people who are creating this content specifically because they know that people can’t help but watch it.
“We’re attracted to controversy, we’re attracted to crazy stories about demonic rituals, and this event is a hot topic of conversation right now – people are talking about it. .”
