2013-sxsw-festival

actually the funniest thing about the fyre festival fiasco is that basically a bunch of rich kids were on a regular normal camping trip instead of a “glamping experience” or whatever privileged asshole bullshit they signed up for and now they’re out here acting like they survived a war zone. like oh the horror, becky and chad had to eat a cheese sandwich and pee in a porta-potty, somebody call the fucking red cross

Like is really fun to laugh at rich white people stuck on an island, but PLEASE remember: this is not some “deserted island”, there are people native to there, or have lived there for generations. Bahamians have been conSistently shit on by rich [white] tourists who travel there to have a great time with no consequences, but their actions DO have consequences and repercussions for those who live there. These rich folks are trashing their island and literally LIGHTING SHIT ON FIRE? and you know they aren’t going to be the ones cleaning it up.
So please - keep Bahamians in mind at the very least, help however you can if you can (I’m sure there will be donation funds for clean up if there aren’t already), and if you end up visiting the Bahamas please remember to respect the locals and try to support them rather than the multinational corporations whenever you can

fyre festival is amazing, it’s like Hyper Dashcon

instead of some random tumblr users getting scammed out of $50 then going home, it’s a bunch of rich people being scammed for thousands then getting stuck on a deserted island while trying to escape
