‘W Magazine’ is reportedly trying to pull its upcoming issue featuring Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner on the cover.

Editors are in a tizzy over the issue following the Astroworld Festival tragedy, in which 10 people died and more than 300 were injured during a performance by Scott in Houston.
The Scott-Jenner cover, which also featured a big interview in the issue, was shot and printed before the Nov. 5 concert, but had not yet been shipped, prompting the scramble to recall the magazine before it hits store shelves, sources said.
“W editors have cleared any planned coverage of Travis and Kylie from their website, but the magazine was already printed, and now they are trying to stop the delivery trucks,” one source told Page Six.
“In the light of what happened at Astroworld, the interview and cover lines seem inappropriate, to say the least.”
Scott, 30, has been under a lot of scrutiny over Astroworld — which was attended by Jenner, 24, and their 3-year-old daughter, Stormi — and has been criticized by people who feel he could have stopped the chaos by halting his show earlier. This has been denied by his new spokeswoman.
The rapper and his billionaire girlfriend, who is pregnant with their second child, have been staying at his $14 million Houston home since the incident.
Jenner and Stormi were at the gig with the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum’s sister Kendall Jenner.
While Scott has said he is “devastated” by the incident, his spokesperson insisted, “He was not responsible for this, but he wants to be responsible for the solution.”
That timing is really unfortunate.
