If you’re wondering why you didn’t hear any reports of Bella Hadid or Kendall Jenner suffering the inhumanities of cold cheese sandwiches and “refugee” tents on a private island in the Bahamas this week, it’s because the supermodels and other A-listers expected to attend the Fyre Music Festival were told to stay away when it first became clear the festival was not going to deliver the “luxury” experience it promised.
As Crime Online earlier reported, the Fyre Music Festival was “postponed” (aka cancelled) Friday morning after a disastrous opening night on Thursday. Attendees who paid thousands of dollars for tickets and travel (“VIP” packages cost over $12,000 for one weekend) arrived to find campgrounds filled will rat feces, feral dogs, and garbage, and food that was more like what you’d find in a high school cafeteria than a “curated culinary popup” during a “once in a lifetime experience.”
Fyre Festival was co-organized by Ja Rule (who has since tweeted that he “was taking responsibility” for what happened but also that it “was NOT [his] fault), and “promoted” by models and social media influencers like Hadid, Jenner, and Emily Ratajowski, who were nowhere to be seen at the festival.
“[The organizers] called all the A-list names and the modeling agencies and told them not to come,” a source told the New York Post. “They were just like, ‘Oh, come next weekend when all the kinks have been worked out.’ This was before the chaos even started.”
The festival organizers have publicly committed to getting everyone who arrived this week home safely, but there has not been any mention so far of refunds, causing some to accuse the festival of being a total fraud.
