Hip-hop star Future has been slammed for promoting an upcoming Las Vegas concert online, not long after the deadly shooting at an open-air concert in the city.

Stephen Craig Paddock killed at least 59 people and wounded more than 500 at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. Only hours later, Future's rep tweeted an ad for the show scheduled on Halloween weekend, unfortunately entitled 'Horror Story'.

This comes after the 'Mask Off' hitmaker cancelled his Auckland show and all remaining Australian tour dates last week, after the death of a friend. Future's rep said in a statement that they "regret to advise that a very close friend of Future's has passed away and, as a result, he is rushing back to the USA to attend the funeral".

While the tweet was most likely a pre-scheduled accident, the resulting tweets from fans have been scathing.
