SICK trolls have been slammed for wildly claiming that The Simpsons “predicted” Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert.
Social media users claim the cartoon show previously predicted many real-life events throughout its history ranging from Donald Trump’s presidency to Richard Branson entering space.
Twitter users shared an image of Homer and Lisa walking into the mouth of a giant head.
They claim the design looks eerily similar to Scott's Astroworld album cover and the stage layout seen at previous festivals.
The image is a piece of fan art that was created in 2018 and hasn't appeared on any episodes of The Simpsons.
Sick trolls have been slammed for trying to make a comparison.
One Twitter user said: “Stop posting stuff that isn’t real without looking into it. FFS.”
A TikTok user shared footage from a Simpsons episode in February 1992.
In the clip, Homer is seen holding a World Weekly news magazine cover that reads: “Bat Boy Accurately Predicts Final Four.”
It appears to be a spin-off of the publication Weekly World News. The magazine ran from 1979 until 2007 and was renowned for its supernatural stories, HITC reports.

The cover looked similar to an image of a magazine splash Travis uploaded when he announced his new music on November 4 – days before the Astroworld tragedy.
An alien-looking creature has its mouth wide open and the headline reads: “The true dystopia is here!”
One said: “Do u know how stupid u gotta be to believe the Simpsons predicted Astroworld. Like even the flat earthers are more logical than y’all I swear it is WILD (sic).”
Another posted: “If I see one more idiot 19 y/o on TikTok talk about ‘The Simpsons predicted Astroworld.”
There is no evidence to suggest the Simpsons "predicted" Astroworld.
Astroworld is the third studio album produced by Scott and the first festival was held in 2018.
Simpsons fans wildly claim the TV show predicted Trump’s rise to power in an episode that aired back in 2000.
In the cartoon, Lisa refers to “inheriting quite a budget crunch from President Trump”.
The show even featured a scene where Trump was seen waving from the escalator – almost exactly mirroring his famous 2015 photo.
Writer Al Jean told BBC Radio 1: "With the Trump one in 2000 we were looking for a funny celebrity who would be president."
In an interview with the Guardian, creator Matt Groening said the coincidence of the series predicting a Trump presidency was "beyond satire".
He said: "We predicted that he would be president back in 2000 – but [Trump] was, of course, the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of at the time, and that's still true. It's beyond satire."
Fans noticed that Kamala Harris' ensemble at President Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony was almost identical to Lisa Simpson's attire in a 2000 episode.
In the episode, Lisa wears a purple suit and a pearl necklace as she is sworn in as president.
Harris donned a purple outfit and matched it with black heels and a pearl necklace at the inauguration ceremony held at the Capitol in January.
The show apparently foretold Richard Branson's flight into space seven years ago.
In July, the Virgin Group magnate and five crewmates made history as they traveled in the VSS Unity.
The feat was apparently all too similar to a 2014 episode called "The War of Art."
An art forger named Klaus Ziegler informs Lisa his “forgeries give pleasure to people all over the world".
One of the admirers of the forger's faux art is Branson who shows up in a cameo, floating in a spaceship gazing at a painting.
At least eight people are dead following the stampede in Houston on November 5.
The youngest victim is 14-year-old schoolboy John Hilgert.
Scott has since revealed he will pay the funeral costs for the victims as a slew of lawsuits mount.
The rapper, who was due to perform at this weekend’s Day N Vegas event, has been pulled from the star-studded lineup.
