Fyre Festival may have won the internet this weekend, but those that attended the haphazard event weren't quite as impressed. Now, Bella Hadid has commented on Fyre, and the model is just as disappointed as everyone else.
In a message drawn up in the Notes app, Hadid addressed her involvement in Fyre Festival, and it sounds as though she had no idea the event was going to be so disorganized.
She started by saying, "Even though this was not my project what so ever, nor was I informed about the production or process of the festival in any shape or form, I do know that it has always been out of great intent and they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives."
While attendees definitely had an unforgettable experience for all of the wrong reasons, it appears that Hadid was out of the loop, just like everybody else.
Hadid had been criticized for promoting the event, especially as she was spotted hanging out with friends in Miami, while members of the public were stranded at the festival. But, it seems as though no-one had any idea that Fyre was going so drastically wrong.
Hadid continued, "I initially trusted this would be an amazing & memorable experience for all of us, which is why I agreed to do one promotion … not knowing about the disaster that was to come."
People bought tickets to the luxury music festival in the Bahamas hoping to party with celebrities. Instead, they arrived to a disheveled campsite, with a severe lack of food, entertainment, or famous people.
