Kanye West, who allegedly ‘punched a fan’ outside an LA members club, is now being slammed by the family of Astroworld’s youngest victim, over a statement he has made about Billie Eilish.

It all started when the rapper heard that the 20-year-old was performing in Atlanta last week and briefly stopped her set when someone in the audience was struggling to breathe.

She apparently remarked: “I wait for people to be okay until I keep going.”

Believing she was taking a dig at Travis Scott, West reportedly gave the singer an ultimatum about their upcoming performance at Coachella, saying: “I need Billie to apologise before I perform.”

After hearing the statement, the grandparents of nine-year-old Ezra Blount told Rolling Stone they were left shocked by the rapper’s ‘idiotic’ words.

They told the publication: “To hear Kanye’s words, that’s hurtful to us. What an idiotic thing to say.”

Blount’s grandmother, Tericia Blount, added: “I think it’s just crazy, and I hate to use that word, but I think it’s ridiculous.

“She’s making sure that she is caring for the patrons at her concert, and I just think that’s crazy of Kanye to even let that demand come out of his mouth.

“I totally commend Billie Eilish for having that decency about her.

“I think what she did was wonderful, and I would love to tell her myself how brilliant and awesome she is for doing so.”

Her husband, Bernon Blount, continued: “That’s crazy that he wants someone to apologise for putting the welfare of someone else before their profits.

“That’s someone who needed their asthma pump. They could have lost their life, right then. This world is twisted, and we have to stop doing this.”

Eilish has since responded to West’s statement, saying: “Literally never said a thing about Travis. Was just helping a fan.”
