Police Use Pepper Balls To Disperse Travis Scott Fans

People can get pretty hype to see a concert by their favorite artists, but when circumstances dictate an inability to perform those emotions can turn on a dime. Case in point: when mega-popular rapper Travis Scott had to cancel a show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, police were called in and pepper balls were deployed to stop a riot.

We don’t have any more details than that, but the fans who were already lined up outside the building reacted pretty negatively, pushing against the doors and even cracking one with a thrown water bottle.
