Without further context, it’s hard to tell whether the tweet had any relation to his hospitalization. Several fans have been quick to point out that “God Save Me” is also the title of a song he co-wrote and produced with his close collaborator, Machine Gun Kelly.

Six people died in the incident, leaving Travis and his friend Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein as the only survivors. Travis suffered third-degree burns on 65% of his body and spent 11 weeks in hospital as a result. He underwent 27 surgeries and almost lost a foot due to the severity of his burns.
