Beyonce Sued by Women Trampled at Chicago Concert (VIDEO)
Beyonce's concerts should apparently come with a warning label! Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson are suing the singer after the two were crushed and left with broken bones by a "rushing mob" at a December 2013 concert.
The two women had purchased general admission tickets and arrived hours early in hopes of being close to the action on stage, but we're guessing what happened as the gates opened wasn't exactly the action Castellanos and Davidson had in mind.
According to the suit filed against Queen Bey, Live Nation Entertainment, and the United Center, Castellanos and Davidson allege the venue didn't have a proper (i.e. injury-preventing) plan ready to keep the swarm of rowdy concert attendees.
“To the contrary," the suit stated. "The United Center encouraged it by the set up which it created and controlled."
After the gates were opened to the public, the two women were knocked to the floor, trampled, and knocked unconscious by the rowdy crowd. Eventually the Chicago Fire Department transported the two women to the hospital. Castellanos and Davidson are now seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.
What do you think? Should Beyonce be held accountable for something like this? (After all, it was her concert.) Or should the United Center take full responsibility for its lack of a safety plan?
