Contemporary Services Corporation that provided security for Astroworld is reportedly the same company that provided security at Dave Chapelle’s recent stand-up event, “Netflix is a Joke.” The Astroworld Festival was a disaster, taking the lives of 10 people and injuring countless others.
Though multiple sources took blame for the failures of Astroworld, including Travis Scott, CSC was among those under fire. The security company – one of the largest in the United States – was singled out by employees who complained about the hiring process. Now, CSC is under fire again after a man attacked Dave Chapelle on their watch.
According to Daily Mail, comedian Tehran Von Ghasri complained to CSC that a hooded man with a backpack breached security. “She (a CSC employee) shrugged me off,” he told Buzz Feed. “And within a minute, [Lee] had hoisted himself onstage and knocked Chappelle down.”
Reportedly, CSC was also the security hired for the Once Upon a Time Festival where Drakeo the Ruler was killed.
