The 30-year-old singer is currently on her The Last Rose Petal Farewell Tour and abruptly stopped the show on Monday in Los Angeles when she noticed a fan in distress.

TikTok user @valeriewango caught the moment on camera, showing Teyana halting her performance to see if the audience member needed medical attention.

"Is she okay?" Teyana asked the crowd near the fan on the microphone. Seemingly referencing the Astroworld events, she continued, "Bring her up here. Is she okay? We ain't doing that. Come on."

The video has gone viral, but what Teyana said next isn't sitting right with everyone.

Before ordering her security to bring the fan on the edge of the stage so they could catch their breath, the Teyana & Iman star threw out a bizarre joke. "I'm about to retire, you ain't gonna sue me baby. Let's make sure we're good," she said.

Several fans have taken to Twitter to clown Teyana for the retirement joke.

Teyana's move comes just three days after Travis' deadly festival. The venue NRG Park was packed with 50,000 people waiting to see the Highest In The Room rapper perform.

Once Travis hit the stage, fans began pushing, but it only got worse when Drake joined him for Sicko Mode. Hundreds of people were injured, including 11 who suffered cardiac arrest. The death toll sits at 8 right now, with the youngest victim to pass away being 14 years old.

Video obtained by Radar shows the chaotic scene, with included limp bodies being dragged over barricades. Many are blaming the poor barricade design, claiming people were trapped. Others are pointing the finger at Travis, insisting he should have stopped his show.

As Radar reported, Travis, Live Nation, and the organizers of Astroworld have all been hit with lawsuits by fans who say they suffered injuries. “Many begged security guards hired by Live Nation Entertainment for help, but were ignored,” one complaint read.

Another complaint states this was a “preventable tragedy" and only happened because of “inadequate security."
