Travis Scott Will Donate Alabama Festival Merch Profits To Planned Parenthood
GRAMMY-nominated rapper Travis Scott will donate proceeds from merchandise sold at this past weekend's Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Ala. to Planned Parenthood, he announced during his performance on Friday.
"We feel for those out in Alabama," he said in a video taken by an audience member during the performance. "I love y'all and I just want everyone to know that love is the strongest thing we can have."
The donation announcement was made days after Alabama passed HB 314, a law that punishes doctors who perform an abortion with up to 99 years in prison. Scott did not directly reference any law passed in the state during the statement, Pitchfork reports.
