For several days, social media users speculated why Travis Scott decided to deactivate his Instagram page. People making fun of the “Sicko Mode” rhymer’s Halloween costume was one of the reasons offered for his break from the platform.

“Halloween had nothing to do with it,” a source told Page Six. “He is focusing on his family and their well-being and wants to influence his fans to do the same instead of being so consumed with social media.”
The source also suggested Scott’s exit from Instagram had to do with it being “a critical time in the world.” That statement likely referred to the election season in America which is highlighted by the contentious presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.
