A new petition has been launched by a small number of people on Change.org, urging the governor of Texas to ban the rapper from having shows in Texas for the foreseeable future.

Samantha Moore is listed as the creator of the petition, and Governor Greg Abbott, Senator Ted Cruz and the statehouse have been carbon copied on the petition.

These are known key makers that Samantha hopes will ultimately ban rapper Travis Scott from having a show in his native state again, following the events of the Astroworld Music Festival.

The creator of the petition listed several reasons of why Scott should be banned, for example, highlighting the rapper's history of 'disorderly conduct' where he pleaded guilty.

Samantha mentioned that the rapper had:

...created a culture within his shows that is unacceptable and should not be allowed anywhere near Texas.

This is in relation to the 2015 Lollapalooza performance as reported by Rolling Stone that saw Scott get arrested and the 2017 event in Arkansas where the artist encouraged fans to rush to the stage.

Samantha even highlighted the rapper Travis Scott's actual native name, Jacques Webster, and made a plea to Governor Abbott to consider this petition.

Scott is still scheduled to headline Coachella 2022, despite there being calls to the event producers to remove the artist from headlining the event.

A petition to remove him from the Coachella lineup has over 45,689 signatures at the time of sending this article for publication on Monday, November 15, 2021.

The managing agency behind Coachella is yet to respond to queries on whether the artist will be benched from performing at next year's event.

Rapper Travis Scott is rumored by legal bodies all over the internet to be headed towards heavy lawsuits, which might take months and months to reach a concise resolution.
