It appears that everyone who had even a passing involvement with the ill-fated Fyre Festival is backing right the hell away from it, including model Bella Hadid, who has issued a lengthy apology via a note on Twitter.

Alongside Kendall Jenner, Hadid was one of the celebrity faces of the event, appearing in flashy promotional videos that showed a Caribbean paradise, rather than the wild dog-infested free-for-all that the festival would become. 

It was reported yesterday that the festival promoters warned celebrity guests to not to bother turning up this weekend, presumably knowing that it would not be going off as advertised.  

As the backlash continues against the high-profile names associated with Fyre Festival promotions, Hadid apologised directly to her followers, saying:

“Hey guys, I just want to address Fyre Festival…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 that they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives.”

She went on to say that she trusted the festival to be an “amazing” experience, and added “of course if I would have known about the outcome, you would have all known too.”

It appears that the organisers haven’t given up just yet, with reports in E! News indicating that they are planning to try running Fyre again at an American beach venue in 2018 with “more seasoned experts” involved in the organisation. 

They are reportedly refunding those who purchased tickets to this year’s event, and offering them free VIP passes for next year’s, because yeah, everyone will definitely be keen to give this another go-around.
