Kylie Jenner's beau Travis Scott pledges profits to Planned Parenthood to protest Alabama's anti-abortion law
The music festival in the state took place just days after Alabama governor Kay Ivey signed into law the most restrictive abortion ban in the country
Rapper Travis Scott, who recently performed at the Hangout Fest 2019 in Alabama last weekend from May 17 to 19, has decided to express his stand against the state's controversial abortion ban. On Monday, May 20, night, the rapper's baby mama Kylie Jenner took to Instagram to share the news that Scott will be donating proceeds from his merchandise sale at the fest to Planned Parenthood.
Kylie posted about her beau's plans regarding the recent abortion ban in Alabama, writing: "Travis Scott is donating all his merch profits from Hangout Fest 2019 to planned parenthood organizations in support of women in Alabama." The picture posted by the lip kit mogul came from an Instagram fan account, TravisScott.Astro.
The fan account also posted a short video clip where the rapper was heard telling fans that he was making this donation. "I wanna just donate my net profits from my merch today to planned parenthood in this state," Travis said, as the crowd started applauding and cheering. "We feel for those out in Alabama. We love y'all. I just wanted you to know that love is the strongest feeling we have."
The music festival in the state took place over just days after Alabama governor Kay Ivey signed into law the most restrictive abortion ban in the country, which is slated to even punish doctors who perform abortions with a life sentence in prison. Under the new law, abortion will only be allowed, "to avoid a serious health risk to the unborn child's mother," or if the "unborn child has a lethal anomaly," according to reports.
Even though Travis did not publicize his decision to donate profits from his merch sale to anti-abortion organizations, his girlfriend Kylie definitely seemed to be quite proud of him for his generous gesture. She shared the original post with a number of heart emojis under the original post, though she didn't comment on the donation any further.
Meanwhile, Kylie was seen having quite a lot of fun and got a lot of family support for the launch of her new skincare line, Kylie Skin, as she was joined by her half-sisters Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, along with her parents Kris Jenner and Caitlyn at her launch party.
Even before the launch of her new skincare line, Kylie Skin found itself facing a lot of flak from skincare fans over her new walnut face scrub. Multiple people complained about the self-made billionaire's new face scrub, saying that walnuts are actually bad for your skin, especially if used in the manner of a face scrub.
The walnut in the scrub acts as an exfoliator which removes dead skin cells from the area you apply it, in this case, your face. Like many other exfoliators, walnuts can often be too harsh for someone's skin and have regularly been slammed by critics.
