Anheuser-Busch has pulled its Travis Scott-branded hard seltzer from shelves in the wake of the Astroworld music festival tragedy, the company announced.

“After careful evaluation, we have decided to stop all production and brand development of CACTI Agave Spiked Seltzer. We believe brand fans will understand and respect this decision.” the beverage giant said in a statement Friday, TMZ reported.

Reps for the “Sicko Mode” rapper sought to tamp down speculation that the decision was prompted by the ill-fated concert, saying that he was “not focused on business right now.”

“His priority is helping his community and fans heal. CACTI asked AB InBev to inform their wholesalers there will not be product at this time,” they said.

Ten people died and hundreds more were injured in the terrifying crowd surge at Scott’s Nov. 5 concert in Houston.

The 30-year-old musician, who has been laying low since the deadly stampede, finally offered his first extended interview to radio host Charlamagne tha God on Thursday. Scott has maintained he didn’t realize the carnage was underway during his performance but told the Breakfast Club host he had “a responsibility to figure out what happened.”

“I have a responsibility to find a solution,” he said. “Hopefully this takes a first step into us as artists having more insight as to what’s going on.”
