Travis Scott's new album 'ASTROWORLD' is set to drop today and the cover art was revealed earlier this week. The issue that has made news is that David LaChapelle, renown photographer, removed performance artist Amanda Lepore in the version that Scott posted on his own Instagram.
After coming under fire from Lepore's fans about her removal, LaChapelle explained that the change was made because "she just upstaged everyone." He said later on that her removal has "nothing to do with hating."
Lepore posted about the matter herself but seemed to take the removal with a light heart.
