NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 28: Comedian Dave Chappelle speaks onstage during the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Madison Square Garden on January 28, 2018 in New York City.

What’s the saying? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Contemporary Services Corp. is a HUGE security company and it just so happens to be the company who worked the Netflix is a Joke festival AND the Astroworld festival, the Travis Scott festival where multiple people lost their lives.

Buzzfeed did research and found out that CSC’s practices may have caused these major failures. They hired inexperienced staff as independent contractors.

What’s crazy is that Chappelle had just joked about increased threats against comedians, of course because of what happened with Will Smith and Chris Rock.

According to Uproxx, the Hollywood Bowl, is “reviewing its “existing procedures both internally and with the assistance of outside experts.” CSC, which also worked the Astroworld Festival and the Route 91 Harvest festival in 2017, is reportedly named in a number of lawsuits from event attendees and former staff, including those related to Astroworld. In 2020, CSC, along with MGM and Live Nation, settled a lawsuit with 4,400 people impacted by the mass shooting for $800 million.

If it’s me, I’m not hiring CSC to do security for nothin!
