The model's presence on the original David LaChapelle-shot piece appears to have been removed from the final version of the artwork

Travis Scott has come under fire for appearing to remove the revered trans model Amanda Lepore from the final version of a piece of promotional artwork for his new album.

The Texan rapper will release ‘Astroworld’ tomorrow (August 3), which is his third solo studio album.

‘Astroworld’ currently has two different album artworks, both of which were shot by photographer David LaChapelle. The alternative cover is the artwork which has attracted the negative press, with LaChapelle’s original shot having seemingly been changed by Scott’s team for the finalised version.

In LaChapelle’s original piece (which you can see above), Lepore is featured among the other models looking around to the left of the shot. However, she is missing from the final version of the artwork, which Scott posted to Instagram yesterday (August 1).

Lepore’s omission from the final artwork has been criticised on social media, with RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10 winner Aquaria highlighting the difference between the two artworks on Twitter – adding “Hi transphobia! I just saw transphobia gurl!”

The mysterious case of the disappearing Amanda…. hmmm @trvisXX ????

In a statement, Lepore wrote on Instagram: “A girl can’t help it! I’m too distracting for the eyes. I upstaged everyone in the photograph! Oh well… I love David LaChapelle and Travis Scott. Love and kisses.”
