Shanina Shaik Has Broken Her Silence On The Fyre Festival

Fyre Festival promised ticket buyers a luxury experience, over two weeks in the Bahamas, but instead delivered disaster relief tents instead of fancy villas and packaged sandwiches instead of meals cooked by celebrity chefs.

Several models were hired to promote the festival in the lead up to the event, and now, Aussie Victoria's Secret model Shanina Shaik has opened up about it all.

Shanina, who is 27 years old, was paid to promote the music festival in 2017 with the likes of Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Alessandra Ambrosio and more.

Shaik spoke with the Daily Telegraph after watching the Netflix documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.

"I cried when I watched it."

"It is really horrific what happened. The girls and I were just kind of dragged into it."

"We would never want to promote something like that or take someone’s money."

"When a client comes to my agent and has a vision or a project they want to work with us on, my agency always makes sure we are protected and looked after."

The Australian model used her Instagram account to promote the festival, and was in the lush commercial alongside other models represented by IMG.
