TV Personality Bethenny Frankel Pledges $10,000 to Help 9-Year-Old Astroworld Victim

TV Personality Bethenny Frankel is pledging to help the 9-year-old Astroworld victim Ezra Blount who suffered severe injuries after attending Travis Scott‘s Houston festival. 

Frankel posted a video on her Instagram Story Tuesday announcing that her BStrong Foundation would donate $10,000 to Blount’s family after the horrific tragedy that left eight dead and hundreds injured.

“Hey, so I’m reading about this nine-year-old boy Ezra Blount who was at that disastrous concert — which should be called a travesty, actually — and they have a GoFundMe page, and they’ve raised $14,000,” she began. 

“BStrong has been fully functioning and mobilizing to help with the homeless crisis, and we are coordinating homeless holiday kits to give out — 1,500 boxes — because this is a challenging time emotionally, physically, so that has been our primary focus after Haiti and New Orleans.”

“And now, BStrong is going to donate $10,000 to Ezra’s family,” she said. “We will bring the aid to his family. And we want to know if you want to donate also. You can go on”

And in a tweet, she shared: “This is terribly upsetting,” adding, “Hopefully we can help in some small meaningful way. We are focused on a homeless effort but taking time to shift focus here for a moment as it’s horrific.” 

Frankel added in another tweet, “I was up all night thinking about those poor children (someone’s babies) at that concert. It’s so tragic….when something so unnecessary could have been avoided, I obsess incessantly about how to change the course of events.”

Blount attended Scott’s Friday performance at the artist’s Astroworld festival with his father, Treston Blount.

When Treston passed out during the crowd surge, Ezra fell from his father’s shoulders and was trampled by the crowd.

He was then taken to Texas Children’s Hospital after suffering brain swelling and organ damage, according to his grandfather, Bernon Blount.

Ezra is “a small, innocent child” who “didn’t deserve” what happened to him at the show. 

“He’s just coming into town to see one of his favorite artists, and to be trampled like that, and really left in the hospital with no one knowing where he was, that’s heartbreaking,” Bernon said. “As the citizens of Houston, we don’t deserve it, and my grandson certainly didn’t deserve it.”
