Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and more models are under fyre (sorry) for promoting Ja Rule’s disastrous luxury island music event. Fans are outraged that they backed the festival, where some ticket packages reached the triple digits, and you can see their tweets here!
Victoria’s Secret models including Kendall Jenner, 21, Bella Hadid, 20, Alessandra Ambrosio, 36, Emily Ratajkowski, 25, and Hailey Baldwin, 20, promoted Fyre Festival in Dec. 2016, encouraging fans to buy tickets (Kendall has since deleted her Instagram post) after they were flown to the Bahamas by the organizers. Now that the event has dissolved into utter chaos, resulting in a postponement, fans are dragging the women for backing it and advertising a paradise that didn’t end up existing.
“Kendall Jenner, drinking a Pepsi, on a United flight, to the Fyre Festival,” one person wrote, effectively summing up the biggest PR disasters of 2017 so far. “SHAME ON YOU. Be careful what you advertise next time,” another tweeted at Emily Ratajkowski. Kind of harsh, but it’s easy to see where people are coming from — just click through our gallery to see pics of everything that went wrong at the festival. Take a look at more tweets below:
