In the times following the discharge of Netflix’s FYRE documentary, just one scene was on everybody’s thoughts: Andy King’s ridiculous dick sucking story. The story of how founder Billy McFarland requested King to suck dick in an effort to launch water from customs on the island turned a fast meme and made its rounds.
During an interview with Netflix, separate from and after the discharge of the documentary, King admitted he didn’t even know what a meme was, nor that he was trending. “When someone reached out last weekend and said, ‘you’re trending’, [I was] like, ‘I don’t even know what trending means,’” he mentioned. “People are talking about you… and yesterday people were like, ‘you’re a ME ME’, I’m like ‘What’s a ME ME?’”
Now, after a bevy of TV affords and nationwide consideration, King got here clear to TMZ that he didn’t even need the scene within the closing lower within the first place.
“I went to them and said, ‘Listen, I just talked with my lawyers and some of my creative team and they said, ‘Andy, you got to pull that thing. That can not go into this documentary,’” King advised TMZ.
“And when I sat with the director, he said, ‘Andy, you don’t understand: Without that scene, there isn’t a documentary.’ I said, ‘Oh come on, there’s no way.’ They said, ‘Trust me.’ And that is an integral part, as you know, of the documentary itself.’”
Since the documentary got here out, and have become certainly one of Netflix’s hottest documentaries of all time, King has been provided quite a few TV offers, in addition to alternatives to cameo in motion pictures and run music festivals.
“I probably wouldn’t be where I am today if it were taken out. I mean how I’ve become this social media hero over a situation like that, I’m in total shock,” he mentioned.
