Yesterday we reported on Fyre Festival, which was meant to be held in The Bahamas, but was cancelled at the last minute. 

The last minute cancellation mean that those who spent up to $15,000 on tickets were stranded in the deserted location, including some Australians.

Bella Hadid had done some promotion for the festival and has now responded to her fans with a heart warming message about the situation that has played out. 

The model wrote on her Twitter page, 

"Hey guys, I just want 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 out of great intent and that they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives.

"I initially trusted this would be an amazing and 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 loved ones."

The Exuma island event, which was to showcase the talents of Blink 182Major Lazer, and others, was cancelled at the very last minute due to reported “circumstances out of” organiser’s control, for the inability to prepare “physical infrastructure” in time on the underdeveloped island.

One organiser, Billy McFarland, spoke to Rolling Stone, saying that he and co-organiser Ja Rule were "a little bit ambitious.

"The Exumas didn't have a really great infrastructure.

"There wasn't water or sewage. It was almost like we tried building a city out of nothing and it took almost all of our personal resources to make this happen, and everything we had, to make this festival go on.”

We hope that everyone gets home safely.
