#RIPTravis Trends on Twitter leaving Travis Scott fans confused and shook
The RIP Travis trend started when a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate video was revealed to give further details about the coming updates. A couple of days ago it was confirmed that Minecraft Steve would be making an appearance as a new character. In the video today, Steve was shown off along with some new costume additions.
As usual, Smash Bros. fans continued to speculate about who would be making the next character appearance in the game. One of those wants and speculations was for Travis Touchdown to be one of the next characters, and one of the reveals in today's video.
Instead of Travis Touchdown being revealed as new character, he was given a Mii fighter costume. Fans seemed to be let down by the news that he wasn't going to be a full fledged playable character. The let down over Travis is what prompted Super Smash Bros. fans to start tweeting out RIP Travis, thereby starting a trend.
For anyone that wasn't a Smash Bros. player, the trend was incredibly alarming. Many Travis Scott fans thought that he had died or something serious had happened to the rapper. One tweet essentially summed up what was happening:
The Twitter trend then turned from a thread about Super Smash Bros. into a thread about the death of Travis Scott fans. Fortunately for them, there is no bad news for Travis Scott today.
His concert was called the Astronomical concert event, and it took place over a few days in April, as his music toured around Fortnite for fans to listen to. A skin for Travis Scott was also available as part of the Icon series.Published 03 Oct 2020, 23:49 IST
