The very mention of Fyre Festival, the nationally-mocked disaster dreamed up by Billy McFarland, will conjure up a few images. Of course, there are the key figures entangled in the scandal, including Ja Rule and Andy King, who seemed willing to do anything to secure water for the stranded festival-goers. But nothing sums up the shitshow quite like the viral image of a Styrofoam box with two slices of rancid cheese, two pieces of Wonder Bread, and a soggy side salad, meant to feed hungry attendees who were promised five-star catered meals.
Trevor DeHaas took the infamous snapshot of the so-called dinner on April 27, 2017—his first night in The Bahamas for what was meant to be a blowout music festival event boasting the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid partying a mere few feet away from other guests.
The tweet spread across the internet like wildfire as the country was torn between mocking the rich twenty-somethings who shelled out thousands of dollars for this epic screw-up and being genuinely concerned for their well-being, as they were, in true Lord of the Flies fashion, left with little in the way of food or water and were forced to fight over FEMA tents.
