New Exercises in Metaphorically Eating the Rich

Bahamas version:

Quote:
It was supposed to be the most glamorous event of the year, with all the selfie opportunities and flower-crowns a young, gym-bodied social media influencer could dream of. But Fyre Festival, an elite concert event on a deserted island in the Bahamas with tickets priced up to $12,000 has quickly turned into a terrifying B-movie, with flocks of Instagram models forced to seek shelter in an airport after arriving to discover a lack of food, violent locals, appalling accommodation and feral dogs roaming the grounds.
As a result, social media has exploded overnight with tales of Instagram-filtered terror and disappointment, with beautiful festival-goers arriving on the island to discover half-built tents, their luggage being thrown out of the back of a truck, muggers and thieves laying in wait to steal wallets from trust fund kids, unhelpful staff, and "gourmet cuisine" that turned out to be nothing but*ham and cheese sandwiches.

Yes, gross violations of consumer rights, physical assaults and muggings are hilarious when they happen to rich people.

No there really isn't. As much as you want it to be a bunch of spoiled rich brats turning their noses up at things being too mundane, you'd be pretty pissed off yourself if you spent $12k on gourmet food and got served ham butties and then someone stole all your stuff.

I haven't seen that physical assaults of note really happened, and the 'muggings' described seem to have been thefts when people left things unguarded.

The guests seem to have gotten rather pushy with each other over available things like towels, water, etc.

Recalculate based on having been rich long enough for the novelty of having money to have worn off, but not so long that the entire concept has lost all meaning.

From the very article you linked to:

Quote:
"One guy got punched out by security and they took his wallet," claimed one festival-goer on Reddit, while others claimed that local residents on the island have been assaulting Fyre Festival attendees.
You'll excuse me if I am not about to launch an independent inquiry into this, however much relying on the Telegraph's account may be a bad idea.

OK. Being poor versus being rich enough to blow 12 grand on food and suffering the loss of a tiny % of my wealth. Yup, being poor still pissing me off more.

I'm not sure you're really trying here.

OK, imagine you really splurged on a treat for the whole family and you're taking them to Costa del Sol except you end up in Guernsey instead and then someone throws a ham sandwich at you.

Idc, it's still funny.

The vast majority of attendees had nothing worse happen to them other than being fed sub-par food for one day and having to sleep in a tent (which seem to have been repurposed from a company that supplies tents for humanitarian crises/disasters/refugee housing). Oh, and may have been bitten by sandfleas. It even looks like they'll get all their money back.

No, what happened was a group of people got scammed pretty hard. The food and sleeping accommodations are a byproduct of that. Just because the vast majority didn't get personally punched in the face, does not make the whole thing OK.

If this had happened to a group of regular people, booking a holiday and getting ripped off, would you be here laughing at them, too?

If not, would you care to explain why someone possessing large amounts of money means it's OK to dehumanise them because I swear to god I'm like 3 posts away from pulling a Godwin's on this shit.

Oh, wait, I just did with these words.
