A model, who was featured in the promotional video for the Fyre Festival has claimed that she cried whilst watching Netflix's documentary.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, 27-year-old Victoria Secret model, Shanina Shaik, detailed her involvement with the scandal-filled festival.

"I cried when I watched it," she told the newspaper of her viewing 'Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.'

"It is really horrific what happened. The girls and I were just kind of dragged into it. We would never want to promote something like that or take someone's money."

She continued:

“I would never promote anything if I knew that it would have that kind of backlash or what became of that. I would never ever want to promote it.

“When a client comes to my agent and has a vision or a project they want to work with us on, my agency always makes sure we are protected and looked after.”

Shaik is represented by IMG and was paid to promote the event, alongside Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman, Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and more.
