The Restaurant Owner From the “Fyre” Doc Is Finally Getting Her Due

Netflix’s “Fyre” documentary has the web abuzz again about the disastrous 2017 festival.

The doc, which covers the cancelled festival that left tons of Bahamian workers unpaid, troves of attendees and social media influencers sleeping like cave people on wet mattresses, and wreaked complete havoc on a community at a scale without precedent, is, once again, making waves on social media.

But this time, there seems to be some good coming out of it.

Central to the documentary is a Bahamian restaurant owner named Maryann Rolle.

She describes the horrific consequences that Fyre Festival unleashed into her life, Rolle said she was forced to spend about $50,000 of her own savings to account for the unpaid staff who worked for hours on end feeding stranded festival-goers at Fyre.
