Event Producer Andy King's story about Fyre Festival has split opinions on the internet. Some people think it's hilarious, while others are pointing out how problematic and exploitative the whole situation was.

Netflix's documentary about Fyre Festival aka the 'greatest party that never happened' is honestly one of the best things you'll see all year.

The doc, which takes a behind-the-scenes deep dive into the complete and utter downfall of Billy McFarland's Fyre Festival, is wild from start to finish. There's been memes, there's been GoFundMe accounts set up in the name of the restaurant owner who lost her entire savings but one of the most talked about moments of the doc is the incredibly NSFW story told by event producer Andy King.

Around half way through the documentary, viewers find out that customs has seized four trucks full of Evian water meant for the festival. They required a cash payment of $175,000 for the release of the trucks but instead of paying the fee, we find out that Billy asked Andy if he would go and... perform oral sex in exchange for the water. (I'm not joking. You literally cannot make this up. This was apparently a thing that happened.)

Andy's story is so wild and so completely unexpected that viewers still can't quite believe what they've heard... and now the internet has turned the whole thing into a meme.

If you haven't seen the doc yet, or just wanna hear Andy's wild story again, here's a quick recap of what happened:

“Billy called and said, ‘Andy, we need you to take one big thing for the team," Andy says as he recounts the story. "And I said, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve been taking something for the team every day.’ He said, ‘Well, you’re our wonderful gay leader and we need you to go down, will you suck dick to fix this water problem?’ And I said, ‘Billy, what?’ And he said, ‘Andy, if you will go down and suck Cunningham’s dick, who is the head of customs, and get him to clear all of the containers with water, you will save this festival."

Watch the part of the scene below:

Andy, who - in the end - appeared to have a bit of a laugh and a sense of humour about the situation, then reveals that he genuinely contemplated doing what Billy had asked of him but, thankfully he didn’t end up doing it. The water was released and everyone went home with trading any sexual favours for a bottle of Evian.

Here are some of the memes that have done the rounds on Twitter since the documentary dropped:

All jokes aside, Andy's story is actually quite dark when you think about it and the "big thing" Billy asked him to take for the team was completely inappropriate, incredibly unprofessional and actually quite exploitative.

Some people have even expressed their concern over the story, genuinely wondering if Andy is ok and pointing out that asking someone to do something like that based on their sexuality is unacceptable and is actually classed as a form of sexual harassment.

Like we said, it's revealed in the documentary that nothing actually happened but still... it's messy and problematic AF, right?!

Honestly, that Fyre Festival documentary... it truly did the most.
