Future hit with backlash after promoting Halloween show in Las Vegas.
Last night, news broke about the tragedy that occurred in Las Vegas. A gunman showered bullets on a crowd, leaving 50+ dead and more than 500 others injured. It's obviously not the right time to be promoting any show in Las Vegas right now. However, Future took to Twitter to promote an upcoming performance at Drai's in Las Vegas, which subsequently led to him being dragged on the social media platform.
Around noon today, Future tweeted a promotional poster of an upcoming Halloween party in Las Vegas. This comes around 12 hours since the mass shooting occurred. Many of his fans weren't thrilled that the rapper would be promoting his show after what had just happened. While it was likely a scheduled tweet, many were quick to voice their displeasure in the tweet.

Someone like Future, who is a mega entity, probably doesn't handle all of his social media postings on his own. It's more than likely that he has a team of people who deal with his social media platforms. There's also a good chance that it was a pre-scheduled tweet. A few of his fans were quick to point that out, as well.
This was a scheduled tweet, you guys need to relax and stop blowing things out of proportion.— Bryan • 2-2 (@99PrimeTime) October 2, 2017

Oh the fuckery! Scheduled tweet or nah, this is some off timed shit hea!— Sarenna Monique (@SarennaMonique) October 2, 2017
As of right now, the tweet is sitting on his timeline. While again, it's likely that it was a scheduled tweet, it's terrible timing nonetheless.
The Las Vegas shooting was deemed the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. The shooting took place at a music festival at Mandelay Bay Hotel where Jason Aldean was performing. During the concert, a 64 year old man by the name of Stephen Paddock fired shots from the thirty second floor of his hotel into the crowd. The gunman was killed, however, the police have yet to confirm if the wounds the gunman suffered were self-inflicted or done by the police force. The police say that details are still emerging on the situation.
