    So Bella Hadid Spoke Out About That Whole Fyre Festival Thing

    She's v apologetic.

    Hey. If you're like me, you've done nothing for the past 48 hours but read about the Fyre Festival.

    Expectation v. Reality for the biggest scamming festival in the 21st Century #FyreFestival @WNFIV @FyreFraud

    It's sad. It's weird. It's fascinating. It's everything you want in a Young Adult dystopian novel without all the murder.

    There's a lot of shit that went down: Slices of bread as a "catered" meal, blown-over tents that were supposed to be villas, and people's luggage getting held in containers for hours.

    Today, however, we're gonna talk about models. Just one, actually! Bella Hadid. That's her right there.

    You see, Bella was one of the models flown to the Caribbean to be in an all-star campaign for the Fyre Festival. In this video that I somehow was not asked to join in, supermodels are very sexy and beautiful and basically make you want to buy tix to the Fyre Festival just for the opportunity to be around them.

    So after the whole festival kaboom-ed, people were like, "Dudes, WTF?"

    Now, Bella Hadid has responded to the controversy, posting a note on Twitter explaining her part of the situation:

    The note reads:

    Hey guys I just wanted 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 of great intent and they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives. 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...I feel so sorry and badly because this is something I couldn't stand by, although of course if I would have known about the outcome, you would have all known too. I hope everyone is safe and back with their families and loved ones...xo
